And Sometimes We Lie And Say That We’ve Moved On

Emma Lopez

And maybe I say I won’t call you
but I find myself dialing your number
on a random Tuesday afternoon.
And maybe I say I stopped caring
but I find myself watching your favorite show
wondering how you felt
when your favorite character died.
And maybe I say that I don’t need you in my life
but I find myself missing your arms when I’m all alone
knowing that you’re the only one
who could take the pain away.
And maybe I say that I won’t ask about you
but I find myself trying to find out
how you’re doing and if you’re okay.
And maybe I say that I don’t care about your happiness
but I find myself praying you find what you’re looking for,
praying that you never have to suffer again.
And maybe I say that I know better now
but then I find myself forgetting everything I learned
as I reach out to you.
And maybe I say I’m already over you
but then I find myself smiling each time
I hear a knock on my door
hoping that maybe this time
it will be you. TC mark

This Book Will Help You Let Go

“They think you’re mine and I’m yours. They think there’s a love story going on behind closed doors. They think it’s only a matter of time before someone tells them the truth they’ve been waiting to hear.

We roll our eyes when they joke about us being an item; we laugh at how ridiculous they’re being. But deep inside, I’m crying. I’m crying because what you’re taking as a joke is what I wish could be real.”

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
