My name is Jackie. I'm a mother, a daughter, a friend, a mentor. I love fashion on the cheap, but it's got to have attitude and it's got to be something I can feel comfortable in. I've become hardened by life, but I've still got my soul. New York City is my second home. I don't put up with bullshit. Kissing on the lips is my favorite thing in the entire universe. I'll fall in love with you the second we meet, but I don't believe in fate. There is more to me than this life, and I will find the missing pieces. Just give it time.

Do you remember how it felt that night
Knowing then and there was where we’d start to grow?
You see, I just needed you to know.
Mae, I Just Needed You to Know

Quote reblogged from roman candles. with 11,421 notes

I am not the first person you loved.
You are not the first person I looked at
with a mouthful of forevers. We
have both known loss like the sharp edge
of a knife. We have both lived with lips
more scar tissue than skin. Our love came
unannounced in the middle of the night.
Our love came when we’d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle.

This is how we heal.
I will kiss you like forgiveness. You
will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
on your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you.

And I will not be afraid
of your scars.

I know sometimes
it’s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether it’s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions,
you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane.

I should be over all the butterflies
But I’m into you
And baby, even on our worst nights
I’m into you
Let ‘em wonder how we got this far
‘Cause I don’t really need to wonder at all
Yeah, after all this time
I’m still into you.
Paramore, Still Into You

You make me feel like singing
But I’ve got better use for my tongue
‘Cause even when I kiss you,
I can still hum.

It’s one of those days where

all I want to do is sing/shout or possibly even make my Facebook status that Brand New lyric:


like 19 year old Jackie would because I’m so goddamn happy.


(^ 19 yr old Jackie would put that after it, too)

I’m only a woman of flesh and bone
And I wept much, we all do
I thought I might die alone
But I had never met you
So baby, be good to me

I’ve got nothing to give you, you see
Except everything, everything, everything, everything
All the good and the bad
Cause I’ve been bad
I’ve lied, cheated, stolen
And been ungrateful for what I’ve had.

But I had never met you.

So let’s take a loan out
Put it down on a house
In a place we’ve never lived
In a place that exists in the pages of scripts
And the songs that they sing
And all of the beautiful things that make you weep
But don’t have to make you weak

Cause I never, never, never, never
Never, never, never, never
Never, never, never, never
Never, never, never, never
Never, never, never, never
Never, never, never, never
Never, never, never, never
Loved somebody
The way that I love you.

— Rilo Kiley, Never
