My suitcase heart.

“They should tell you when you’re born: have a suitcase heart, be ready to travel.” That quote probably means much different than what I am reading it as, but I don’t care. From the second I saw it, I knew it belonged to me, and I have clung to those words in the past few […]

The heart of a lion.
