spilled ink love

Please do not
believe them
when they say
that you are weak,
just because
you are in tears.

Do not believe
them when
they say
you can’t,
just because
they never
saw you
secretly trying.

Please do not
let their words
sink deeper
inside your head
when all they mean
is to bring you
lower than them.

I promise,

That boy you thought really loved you, he didn’t.

Someone else is going to come out of nowhere and he’s going to hug you and love you so much, until you’re so full of love and life and happiness that you couldn’t even think to ask for anything more

And he’ll never leave you, even if you’re far apart, even if he goes somewhere that he can never come back from, even if you don’t see him for a long time,

You’ll never be alone ever again

—  Because that’s what it means to really be in love
“she’s a little heartbreaker,”
my mom said on a careless sunday afternoon
and I puffed up with pride
because how pretty must I be
to break a gentle boy’s heart
  
everyone always said I led you around
on a golden string
with my sweet voice
and my face too comparable to a painting
for you to deserve
  
they said I broke your heart
your dream girl runaway
  
but the truth is,
I never broke your heart
you broke it yourself
and you broke mine
and sure, you never led me around like a lost dog
but I did follow you like one
with my face too pretty and voice too sweet pining
after a boy too gentle and far too destructful
  
I told them I was a heartbreaker
because maybe it would make me feel a little less pathetic
when I chased after you
with a big hopeful smile
all over again

Please, can we be friends again?” He asked me desperately.

I hesitated before answering him

“…We were never friends to begin with, so how can we go back to something we never were?”

He furrowed his brows and shook his head before responding.

“I, I don’t understand.”

I let out an exasperated breath

“Friends don’t kiss each other, friends don’t have sex and most importantly friends don’t fall in love. So please, spare me. We both know that we were never “just friends” and we never will be friends.“

He responded with silence.
—  His silence spoke more words than he ever did.
Hope drives me
So don’t
Don’t give me false hope
Don’t pretend
Because my heart will tear
And you won’t care

It’s tragic you couldn’t realize
Just how much you truly need me,
Until I walked out that door
For the very last time.

No more lying, fighting, or
Crying on the floor.
This is no revolving door,
There is no going back this time.
