1. Just because he calls you beautiful doesn’t mean he thinks you are.
He keeps his heart under lock deep in his ribcage, and when he tells you that your fingertips are the key, he is plotting out your tombstone.
Run when you can.
2. He gives you a shoulder to lean on when the world is crumbling beneath your feet, but he is all earthquake.
He pulls you to the edge every time he says you are the only one, and he is getting ready to push you off in three, two–
Open your eyes before it’s too late.
3. He tells you what you need to hear when no one else will, since he is the sun, and you cannot live without him.
Darling, you do not have to be another tragedy waiting to happen, another story to be written, another name to be forgotten.
Find your own light and leave him behind.
