Just because you are lonely does not mean you should invite someone toxic back into your life.
If it wasn’t meant to be, it wasn't meant to be. You’re not missing out. Your life has different plans for you.
I. I hate dreaming about you.  the next day, I am all shaking hands.  yes, still.  in my dreams, I either forgive you or scream. either way, I wake up tired.


  II. I will always lie about the worst things -  the text I wasn’t supposed to see but did/ how I still let you sleep in my bed afterwards/ how the next day, it rained and rained and we thought it was for us.


  III. we loved each other until we didn’t. there is no way to turn this into poetry.

I know it’s hard for you to talk to anyone right now, but how much do I wish I could tell you this: love isn’t everything. You don’t always have to live on the feeling of being in love. You are not a half of a whole seeking for your perfect other half; you are whole. You could be capable of creating masterpieces if you tried to reach for the sky. So please don’t get stuck in your hopeless circle, waiting for love - you are so much more than that person you said you are.

It’s okay to miss someone that meant a lot to you, but be confident with where you are and who you’ll become.
