Loving young couple walking in countryside

and I was I;
we were two
before our time.

I was yours
before I knew,
and you have always
been mine too.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure

concept of love: portrait of the happy couple


“There is one who you belong to, whose love – there is no song for. And though you know it’s wrongful, there is someone else you long for. Your heart was once a vessel, it was filled up to the brim; until the day he left you, now everything sings of him. Of the two who came to love you, to one, your heart you gave. He lives in stars above you – in the love who came and stayed.” — Lang Leav readings

Sharing unconditional love and support


“I don’t want you to love me because I’m good for you, because I say and do all the right things. Because I am everything you have been looking for. I want to be the one you didn’t see coming. The one who gets under your skin. Who makes you unsteady. Who makes you question everything you have ever believed about love. I want to be the one who makes you feel reckless and out of control; the one you are infuriatingly and inexplicably drawn to. I don’t want to be the one who tucks you into bed; I want to be the reason why you can’t sleep at night.” — Lang Leav

Young loving couple sitting on the grass


“It feels bittersweet to love you, as though time has already run its ruinous path and everything good is over before it begins. It feels perilous to love you, like a dust scorn swallowing up the sky or a comet skimming the stratosphere. But it is an honor to love you. Like the snow drifts giving way to spring, I will hold you for as long as I can.” — Lang Leav

bride and groom in the winter woods


“My mother once said to me; there are two kinds of men you’ll meet. The first will give you the life you want and the second will give you the love you desire. If you’re one of the lucky few, you will find both in the one person. But if you ever find yourself having to choose between the two, then always choose love.” — Lang Leav

Gay Couple Kissing Hands Love


“Soul Mates

I don’t know how you are so familiar to me—or why it feels less like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are. How every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before—in another time, a different place, some other existence.”

― Lang Leav

Lang Leav readings


“Before I fell
in love with words,
with setting skies
and singing birds—
it was you I fell
in love with first.”
― Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure

Summer love


“This is where our love is found, in a strange little rhyme; where in space the beat of our hearts resound, while our bones lie in the ground. Little fragments ground down with time, where fingers once were intertwined, and I wore your ring, and you wore mine.” — Lang Leav

Diamond wedding bands


“It was how we began. Your mouth against mine, your fingers tracing along the back of my neck. You asked me to imagine what it must have been like, for the first two people who fell in love; before the word love was conceived. You said it felt that for you. Like we existed in a time before love – as though we were waiting for the word to catch up to the feeling.” — Lang Leav

Elderly couple holding hands


When two souls fall in love, there is nothing else but the
yearning to be close to the other. The presence that is felt
through a hand held, a voice heard, or a smile seen.

Souls do not have calendars or clocks, nor do they understand
the notion of time or distance. They only know it feels right to
be with one another.

This is the reason why you miss someone so much when they
are not there— even if they are only in the very next room.
Your soul only feels their absence— it doesn’t realize the
separation is temporary.”
― Lang Leav

Lang Leav readings


“I had my first dream about you last night.
Really? She smiles. What was it about?
I don’t remember exactly but the whole time I was dreaming, I knew you were mine.”
― Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure

Romance and Love at a wedding


What was it like to love him? Asked Gratitude.
It was like being exhumed, I answered, and brought to life in a flash of brilliance.
What was it like to be loved in return? Asked Joy.
It was like being seen after a perpetual darkness, I replied. To be heard after a lifetime of silence.
What was it like to lose him? Asked Sorrow. There was a long pause before I responded:
It was like hearing every goodbye ever said to me—said all at once.” -Lang Leav

Two girls holding each other hands.


“If I could tell my younger self one thing, it would be this: There are many things in life you can postpone, but love isn’t one of them.” — Lang Leav
