I used to think you were the one,
now I’m not so sure.
It breaks my heart to think this way.

You break my heart.

Sometimes things happen and you want to write about them immediately, like if you don’t spit the words out you might choke on them, but sometimes words don’t flow as poetically as you’d like them to,
they don’t sound beautiful against the silence,
instead they sound like pain,
& I’ve been trying for days to make coming home at 2 am and vomiting up everything inside my body out of sheer, gut wrenching guilt sound lovely but I can’t,
images like that will always make people feel nauseous,
no one wants to bear more pain than they have to,
everyone tries to make all of their heartache and broken skin something meaningful, because they say their ‘blood flowed like rivers’ and their ‘hearts are broken stain-glassed windows’
when in reality they spent days dry heaving and changing bloody bandages and crying so hard, wishing to be anyone else, and it wasn’t fucking beautiful.

Do not mock a pain that you haven’t endured.

A Reminder

There’s a richness in your soul,
a softness that can’t be measured or described.
There’s a deepness in your laugh,
a sweetness that can’t be tasted or captured.
There’s a brilliance in your eyes,
that can’t be reflected or dulled.

There is beauty in your life,
beauty that can’t be remembered.
So write it. Draw it. Take it in and absorb it.
The universe grows inside you, nurturing you.
Let it carry you,
through pain,
through joy,
through loneliness.

Let it lift you through the years,
wrapped around you like ivy growing soft and slow.
Let it open your eyes,
and sing in your ears.

Beauty is all around you, growing within you.
Don’t shut it out.

You are not just a person,
you carry the world within you.
