We cannot escape every pain, heartbreak, and disappointment. No matter how hard we attempt to isolate ourselves, pain will still find you. Rather than fear it, embrace it. Let life teach you what you do not know and with its lessons, you will grow. It’s very easy to say, difficult to do, however I believe in you.

You have been here to try and keep me sane-
Whatever sanity I still have left, anyway.
Right when I want to go insane,
You tell me, save it, for better days.

You let me lose my crazy mind
Only so that I can find it, one more time.
You tell me to think things through
Before I let my emotions stick like glue.

You keep me with my feet on the ground
While helping me rise up higher than I thought.
You brush my doubts away with a blown kiss
Like they are leaves, lost in a breeze.

You tell me to breathe, making me feel at ease;
It’s like I can feel my mind- finally settling down.
You tell me to let out all that’s in my beating heart;
And you pick up my broken pieces, working to put them back.

This isn’t a love poem-
And yet, 
It is.


@teacup13…because a mere thank you, just would not do.

tell me how it feels
to be broken
because every scar
is different
and I want to know
how yours have healed.
