1. I’ve been thinking about cutting my hair to my shoulders and dying it blonde. Maybe if I don’t look like the girl who fell in love with you I won’t feel like her either.

2. Why don’t you miss me?

3. You’re like the stars. You’re so pretty but I catch on fire every time I get too close.

4. My mother thinks you’re a black hole.

5. I don’t want to love you anymore. You’re like a bad taste that won’t wash out of my mouth no matter how many shots I take.

6. I keep replaying your voicemail. How did you manage to make it so your words sting no matter how many times I hear them?

7. I thought scars were supposed to fade.

8. You’re like a disease. You’re spreading throughout my body. You’re in my head and the spaces between my ribs. You’re underneath my fingertips. You’re in my lungs and you’re in my throat. and god you’re in my heart. I wish you would get out. I can’t breathe without feeling you. I can’t get away from you. You left but you’re still here you’re still everywhere.

8 texts I never sent  (via extrasad)

No, I don’t think you understand. When you
told me you didn’t love me anymore, it felt
as if I was sitting in the front seat of an airplane
as it crash-landed. My bones broke and swayed
and my eyes could have been mistaken for
a low-key version of Niagara Falls. I longed to
drown in the puddle I made that day.
Now, I still don’t see how you so easily walked
away when I tried to give you the goddamn sky.
I tried so hard to be your sun and all you
did was wish for rain.

somewhere there is a 17 year old girl who smells like pomegranates and has summer air tight on her naked skin, wrapping around her scars
like veins in a bloody garden, who won’t make it past tomorrow,

there is a young man, who buys yellow flowers for the woman
in apartment 84B, who learned braille when he realized she
couldn’t read his poetry about her white neck and mint eyes

there are people watching films,
making love for the first time, opening mail with the
heading of ‘i miss you’, cooking noodles with
organic spices and red sauces, buying lemon detergent,
ignoring ‘do not smoke’ signs, painting murals
of his lips in abandoned warehouses, chewing
the words ‘i love you’ over and over again, swallowing
phone numbers and forgotten birthdays, eating
strawberry pies, drinking white wine off of each
others open mouths, ignoring the telephone,
reading this poem

somewhere
someone is thinking
i’m alone
somewhere
someone finally understands
they never really
were

You think ‘Okay, I get it, I’m prepared for the worst’, but you hold out that small hope, see, and that’s what fucks you up. That’s what kills you.
Stephen King, “Joyland”   (via anditslove)

You frustrate me, you hurt me (constantly), you treat me like shit and make me feel like I’m not worth a single damn thing. But at the end of the day I still miss you.

It’s still you.
It’s still you.
