INTRO (ABOUT ME):
Hello! I am a very anxious and stressed person. I know, what a way to start a thread right? Well, I wanted to preface this thread by talking a little bit about myself. I have ADHD, anxiety, and clinical depression, so I often find my self very sad and stressed with not a really good way to cope. I have tried art, and music, which help but do not help as much as I would like. I began to watch criminal minds and was very intrigued by the quotes at the beginning and end of the episodes so I began to take an interest in these quotes. As I heard more and more I would memorize some of them, then began to write them down in my 'Quote Book' which is essentially just a notebook I write these quotes in. I later would just look up these quotes and write them down, quotes I just purely thought were cool, as well as thoughtful ones, and even ones I did not understand but wanted to be able to review as I went experienced new things, many of which I now understand. To wrap up this little paragraph about me, I would like to add how these quotes have become my coping mechanism for my depression as well as just school stress. The thing that I find the best however is sharing these quotes with others, so I wanted to create a thread to do this.

If you don't wanna read about me just read this:
This thread hopefully will be a little community inside Edawg sharing quotes, poems, and maybe song lyrics, and short stories! I would love to share quotes that I find philosophical, calming, entertaining, etc. with you all! I think it would be a very good idea to include a quote, poem, etc. that you wanted to share as well as who it came by and possibly what you think of it!


I hope this takes off because it would be very fun sharing this with you all!

One of my absolute favorite quotes is:
“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”


- William W. Purkey


I think the idea of 'heaven on Earth' is such a beautiful idea and it just gives me such hope ( also I'm lowkey a hippie so this makes sense lol)

I'm not much of a quote person anymore, but before, I used to have a whole book of 'em.
I do, however, write poems. This are old, so they're not as good as I hoped they would've been.
I'm not so good at love poems either, so this was something new to me, at first.

I wish I could say how much I love you.
That I wish it was only just us two.
Without them there, to just call you mine.
I wish my heart was what you’d find.

To sit in the moonlight and see you smile.
To talk to only you just for a while.
Because I love you and my heartbeat goes wild.
I wish waking up next to you was my lifestyle.

To the soft words you say to me.
You know how to calm and keep me safe.
To call you mine, I wish you could see.
I love you and your cute little face.

It’s nearly two years but I don’t regret.
My heart is humble, but it’s still set.
For you to say the words I love you.
And I wait each day for it to become true.

Because I love you, I really do.
I wouldn’t be me if you didn’t tell me to.
To open up and don’t hide away.
And there are no words that would help me say.

That I love you.

=-=

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Where are those words,
I love you.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
That love we once had,
Where did it blew.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Do you feel the lost
That can be seen in my eyes too.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
What changed, my love,
Me or you.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Why did you leave me,
Could you give me a clue.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Why am I stuck here?
Because of the love that never grew.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I wish there was a button,
A button that would undo.

Yet roses are still red,
And violets are still their blue,
Why haven’t they changed,
But why have you.

=-=

Of which was broken and lost.
My heart which was buried in frost.
Thank you for being the one.
That taught me love was not done.

Life isn't mine unless I'm with you.
When you're not here, it's a blinding and harsh view.
But when with you, it's like a dream.
But a dream isn't what it only has to seem.

My heart is yours, forever.
You're the reason why it stays together.
My feelings are here and will never fade.
I hope you feel the same now and in a decade.

Thank you for not being a stain.
Thank you for getting rid of the pain.
Thank you for showing me the way.
Thank you for being able to stay.

Glad we met and we intertwined.
Want to ask if you want you and I.
Being here for me and being so close.
Have a connection even in morse.

Pasts were snakes and liars.
Put my heart above a burning fire.
But you helped me down, made me whole.
Showed me a heartful soul.

Can't imagine this without you.
Want to ask if you can't too.
You're the one who makes me fine.
My heart's waiting, do you want to be mine?

Oh my goodness these were so amazing!! I especially loved the use repetition I think the correct word is Epimone, but It was so amazing! Also, thank you for being the first to respond to the thread!
