anonymous asked:

the importance of being earnest: are you flattered or annoyed by gentlemanly behavior?

Flattered. Wine and dine me like one of your French girls.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

If today, Christmas, is going to be a struggle, whether it’s difficult relatives, loneliness, anxiety, depression, eating disorder, arguments, and so on, remember this: you are loved, you are cherished, you are adored, by the Father. His Son was born today and the same love He has for His child, He has for you too. May you all be blessed today.
