You stopped loving them the way they deserved to be loved; you stopped fighting for them the way they needed to be fought for.
I want to be your best when you are not your best.
I am going to risk my heart for you, and I am not going to be afraid.
When you kissed me you became,
the echo of my words,
the tangle in my voice.
I will not spend another slaughtered night trying to figure out if life is treating you well, or if the sun sets beautifully where you happen to rest your head.
I will devour you with my eyes.
You are vivid.
You are bright.
Fall in love with someone who does not make you feel like you are hard to love.
Remember — you have not felt it all. The world still has so much left for you.
Years ago I made the decision to believe in you. To truly, and wildly, believe that you were waking up at 9am on a Sunday morning wondering if I existed, too.
Happiness will leave to help you grow, to help you feel things it only ever would have masked within you.
