Relationships

If you’re going to read too much into what they write, unfollow them. If you’re going to judge them for their heartbreak or their relationship choices, unfollow them. If you’re going to read everything they write and find a way to make it about you, unfollow them.

I spent my time with you imploding and exploding, waiting on any reciprocity I could keep, until my palms were shredded with wounds from refusal to release the rope I tied around to hope that maybe you’d someday love me like I needed – like I deserved.
