I have seen the sun come up
and go back down so many times
there is no sunset that is exactly like another -
a pink hue there, a red glow here, a shimmer of orange across the top-
the only thing that has stayed the same
through my thousand sunrises and sunsets
is that I have always seen them
I think that it’s okay most days
I can trace the cloud formations and the colors
well enough on my own
and without someone next to me
I think I notice more details
I convince myself that another person would be a distraction
alone I can have the sunset to myself.
But then I wonder
would he have a different way to describe the oranges
the pinks and the reds
would he have a new word for the way my bedroom looks
at 6:45 PM on a summer evening
would I start to say orange
and would he stop me
and say - apricot, papaya, candlelight
could he paint me a sunset at noon in words
and are they words that I can’t even pronounce yet?
And would I ever even look at the sunset again
or would I only ever be looking at him?
It’s okay I get them too.
#can we just address the fact that#peeta had just woken up from his own nightmare#in which katniss died#only to hear her screaming#and all his could think was#thats it#shes really going to be gone#and theres such a mixture of fear and relief in his eyes#when he realizes shes okay#so hes okay [via cinnasownmockingjay]

"His fingers skimmed down her body, over skin and satin, and she shivered, leaning into him, and she was sure they both tasted like blood and ashes and salt, but it didn’t matter; the world, the city, and all it’s lights and life seemed to have narrowed down to this, just her and Jace, the burning heart of a frozen world." ― City of Fallen Angels
DELIRIUM MEME | Eight quotes (2/8) »
But the guilt goes even deeper than that. It, too, is dust: Layers and layers of it have accumulated.
Because if it weren’t for me, Lena and Alex would never have been caught at all.
I told on them.
I was jealous.
God forgive me, for I have sinned.
