There is so much beauty in where you come from. So much that it terrifies some of the people in this foreign land because they do not come from there.
Remember this about the ones who betrayed you. Their love was neither as honest nor as pure as the love you give to yourself. It’s the only love worth having.
You should date a person who is self aware and recognises their own flawed humanity.
I’ll never forget the words you said to me. “What happened to you, you used to love me.”
I began to choose myself. That’s what happened to me.
But what do you do with this wild thing that doesn’t listen, that chooses romance when you laugh at the idea of what romance is.
There is witchcraft here, a kind of witchcraft every hunted woman practices when she finds love.
Everyone else treats the rotting things that are falling
from your lips like they are sugar spun soft as cotton candy,
because people don’t want to see something ugly
When it is more efficient and less painful to see
something pretty and acceptable inside their heads.
It was slow, this cancer that grew within our love. It took the pure thing we planted and rotted it from the very roots of what it was.
You can survive and withstand anything.
Learn how to date yourself. Learn how to cherish moments alone. Learn how to experience life with the unique perspective that you were born with.
