“I complimented her bracelet during rehearsal and she replied ‘You think so? Thanks.’ It is an Alexander McQueen bangle, a simple hoop with two skulls facing each other at the ends. Wordlessly she smiles, removes it and places it on my wrist, gently handcuffing me. ‘It’s okay. Keep it. To remind you of me.’…I look at her and it makes me feel still. Then, looking into her eyes, quietly I say: ‘I don’t need anything to remind me of you.’ That is how I fell in love. Throughout (the VMAs) I carried the bracelet in my pocket. Even though she was there.”—Russell Brand talking about the moment he fell in love with Katy Perry ♥ (via badasschris)
Insomnia is a kind of torture because while the world is fast asleep, you're up all alone, your mind buzzing with every random thought in the universe, and sometimes the thoughts will reach a standstill, and your mind goes blank. You become more aware of this silence, and it is during this moment that you realize how alone you are.
