They won’t hide from you in fear of rejection. They will tell you all their secrets that weigh on their heart at night and will bare their naked soul to you. And they won’t do it because they have to. They will do it because they trust you.
I always knew there would be a
statue of us somewhere.
And I see it now in all its glory.
What a shiny little thing.
I hope you remember that you were brought into this earth because somebody wanted you. And somebody still wants you here. You’re a miracle gift to the world. And my dear, you are loved.
Be with someone who wants to make you dance in the middle of the crowd and sing in the middle of silence. Be with someone who makes you believe in yourself. And be with someone who makes saying “I love you” easy. Because you know it’s true.
Slowly, you stop keeping in touch. You stop telling him that you’re dehydrated from crying too hard. You stop telling him to remember you. And little by little, month by month, your flame burns a bit less.
I think you knew all along.
I was lying
because when I told you that I
will love you
forever, I meant it.
During the holidays, your relatives ask you if you’re asexual. You reply by stuffing your mouth with pumpkin pie.
When people think you’re drunk but in reality, you’re just wearing heels.
Feeling relieved when your date does all the talking so you don’t have to pull out your stash of sticky notes for topic ideas.
If I knew that you would leave me for good, I would’ve wanted to hug you. And tell you that even though it wasn’t the same for you, it will always be for me. And even though, I wasn’t your love anymore, that you were mine.
