love you poem

He told me that he loved me, but it hurt.
I knew he would never love me like he loved her. I knew he’d never see me in that light, the light I wanted him so desperately to see me in, the one I shone on myself, begging him to please notice me.
Begging him to see my beauty, and my wit. Begging him to think my jokes are as funny as I try to make them. Begging for him to look at me a little longer, a little harder, so he could see all that I am. So he could see all that I could give to him.
Begging for him to one day come to his senses and realize that all along I was the one he needed.

oh
how I miss you
it aches
a cavity
in my chest
a wound that
haunts me
like my shadow
at 2am
when I write
with my flashlight
trying to
hide my troubles
from my neighbors
who wonder
why my light
is always on
at ungodly hours
of the night
if they
took the time
to ask
why I stay up
so late
I would
say your name
in a quiet
whisper
before awkwardly
explaining my
insomnia
that nothing
can cure
nothing but you
and you
are so
so far
from me
thinking of
other girls
at 2am
I am left
in my room
in the shadows
drenched
in loneliness
utterly
missing
you

(T.)

I was so hell-bent on saving you
from your own chaos.


never thought i’d be the one
who needed to be rescued from you.

I wish he could see himself the way I do. I wish he could see all the reasons that I fell in love with him because maybe then he’d understand the pain he inflicts every time he says that I deserve more than him, that I’ll find better than him. I could meet a billionaire with a heart of gold and it wouldn’t change a thing because in the end, no one is him. No one is good enough.

I hold my breath under water so I can listen to the sound of my thoughts rushing by. I watch as the bath stains me red, only then do I see the stars you left me with.

I always think of sleeping there, wishing I could fill it up higher to fit both of us. I always think of mixing the water with the love that ruins through my vains. I think of how easy it would be to drain the mess I’ve made.

Then maybe when you look to the sky you’ll think of me. I know the clouds can’t hold my weight if I’m still holding on to you. So I hold my breath until only you fill my lungs.

That Artistic Kind of Love

I had always hoped that someone artistic would love me,
That they would see the beauty in my faults.
Play me songs that would make my heart weep tears of joy,
And paint me so beautifully, how could I hate myself any longer?
It wasn’t until I loved you, your lack of any artistic ability and all, that I realized the only artist who could love me that way,
Was myself.
