Quran 2:153

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا اسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلَاةِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَ الصَّابِرِينَ

153. O you who believe! Seek help through patience and prayer. God is indeed with the steadfast.

Scarlet walked into the diner and paused only for a moment. Glancing around she slowly approached the counter and took a seat on one of the stools. When a waitress approached her asking what she would like, she pulled two crumpled, wrinkly dollars from her jacket pocket and set it on the counter,”What food can this buy me? It’s all I have.” Her voice was soft. The waitress, looked down at the money in discuss before popping her gum and sighing, “A black coffee.” Before Scarlet could reply the money was gone and the waitress went to retrieve the cup of black coffee. The hot cup was soon placed in front of her and Scarlet just stared into it’s depths, before reaching for the creamer and sugar.

Stop.
Do you really admire him,
or do you admire
how much he admires you,
the kind thoughts you can see in his eyes?

Stop.
Do you only adore
how much he adores you?

Are you dreaming of
the one you still love,
the one you still can’t let go of,
seeing you together

and burning inside?

You still want vengeance as much
as you want repentance.

Know thyself.
This doe eyed boy does not deserve such pain.
Stop.

An open letter to myself, imploring that I do not break hearts as mine has been broken.
