Screw You For Giving Up On Us


I never thought of you as the failing type.
I know you better than most.
And I know you know me.

I never thought of you as the hungry type.
The kind of man for lust to overtake him.
The kind of man to love less and want more.

I never thought of you as the bad boy.
The kind to ask for more.
The kind to want me until no end.
But to never follow through.

I never thought of you as a fuck boy.
But I guess even you who I loved
until forever
would be the one to awaken my bones
and to shatter them all at once.

I never thought of you as the type
to break me not just once
but twice.

And I never thought of you as the type
for me to ever get over.

But boy.
You had me fooled.
And now I know.
I am finally done
rolling your dice. TC mark

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.

“It’s just wondrous how every time I go through some emotional trauma, your posts are so relatable and it gives me so much hope. I love the writing and the photos. It’s all a pleasure to read. I can’t thank you enough for it, really.” — DM from @ThoughtCatalog Instagram follower
