I put myself through hell, I went there and I saw what it looked like and he was everywhere

I got drunk, I blacked out, I smoked my lungs burnt and I cried my eyes dry

I slept in everything he left behind, I cried myself to sleep and woke up in a numb haze

I let my friends love me, I drank green tea with my mom on Sunday afternoons and gin and tonic with my dad on Friday nights

I stopped checking up on him, one day I noticed I had gone all day without searching his name. I noticed that I didn’t care the way I thought I always would.

I met someone else, someone better.

And that’s the thing; you think you will never be so happy. I promise you you are wrong.

There is always someone out there who will treat you the way you deserve, a hand to hold yours tighter, and smile to make you melt and eyes you can always be sure are only ever looking at you
