An open letter to the Girl Who Deserves Better

I saw you cry last night and the other night. I mean, I see you cry every night. I’m a bit confused for I always see you smile every day. I hear you laugh every day. You talk to him like everything’s fine.

You keep on asking yourself, “what’s the matter?” yet you’re never ready to hear the answer. You make yourself believe that everything’s fine when in reality, IT’S NOT.

You know it, the problem, yet you refuse to accept. You know that YOU DESERVE BETTER however, you also believe that YOU DESERVE HIM. I can’t blame you for loving him. But honey, you——– deserve better.

I’m not saying that he’s not enough but his love…… maybe, his love is not enough. You get meee????

You deserve a guy that asks you how your day went.
You deserve a guy who can’t stand being mad at you for a long time.
You deserve a guy who can’t stand not talking to you.
You deserve a guy that still gets butterflies whenever he sees you.
You deserve a guy who forgets about his anger when you kissed him.
You deserve a guy who’s always there when you need someone to talk to.
You deserve a guy who won’t let your conversation end.
You deserve a guy that shows you how much he misses you, everyday.
You deserve a guy who gives you attention and affection without you having to ask for it.
You deserve a guy who listens to your stories, even the nonsense ones.
You deserve a guy whose efforts are consistent.
You deserve a guy who won’t let you stay sad.
You deserve a guy who will stay into you no matter how long your relationship gets.
You deserve a guy who will accept you and love you for who you are.
You deserve a guy whose willing to give up his bad habits for you. (if he can’t do it for himself)
You deserve a guy who helps you appreciate yourself more.
You deserve a guy who makes time for you.
You deserve a guy who’s loyal to you.
You deserve a guy who asks you if you have eaten your dinner already.
You deserve a guy who’s proud to have you.
You deserve a guy who believes in you.
You deserve a guy who will never get tired cheering you up.
You deserve a guy who sees your worth.
You deserve a guy who loves you unconditionally.
You deserve a guy who values you.

A guy who treats you dinner or brings you to a date is good. A guy who gives you flowers is good. A guy who sends kiss emojis is good. A guy who gives you your favorite chocolates is good. But it’s not all about those, LOVE IS SO MUCH MORE. AND YOU, YOU DESERVE TO BE LOVED AND BE IN LOVE.

we are as ancient books
abused and misused
at any moment
capable of fracturing our seams
but somehow we don’t

we take long deep breaths
hold it together one more day
valiant steps
turn down unknown avenues
simply because
we not alone in this wreckage

the world ignores us
stating we are worthless
but every now and then
an enlightened one sees
and suddenly
we are loved
