I write about leaving / forgetting / finally breathing at least; but go ahead and call my poetry a liar. They were just hopeless attempt to dug you out of my skin anyway. Skip several months later and now it’s been a year and we don’t even say hi (FUNNY CAUSE I STILL CAN REMEMBER YOU CALLING MY NAME 1 HOUR INTO MIDNIGHT LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY) (AND BY FUNNY I MEAN IRONIC—I MEAN, IT SHOULDN’T BE THIS WAY—I MEAN, BUT IT IS WHAT IT IS)

Now I missed your birthday by weeks. I wish I could turn back the time but I couldn’t. Last year I was so unsure but at least I was so in love with you. I wish I could go back to those months when I thought you loved me too but I couldn’t. But I couldn’t.

This is what you don’t do.
Don’t let this world make you bitter. Don’t let the actions of other people turn you cold on the inside. Certain things happen that hurt us, people come that leave us, and most of all there are moments when you’re bound to fall. Don’t let those things make you unkind. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to be sad. But it’s never okay to do other people wrong just because you were done wrong. We’re human. We break. We make mistakes. But don’t let pain and sadness run your lives. Wake up in the morning and do what you think is right. There are moments in your life where you feel like giving up and you can’t take it anymore. It’s okay. Breathe. Inhale. Exhale. I know you’re weak. But the things that show your weak side are also the same ones that make you stronger in the long run. It’s all about taking whatever life throws at you and learning from it.
