i. He was a ball of fire and energy, roaring with joy and happiness. Laughing with him was like second nature, inevitable in his presence. He brought warmth when he came and left good memories when he was gone. He was eccentric jazz notes on the streets of New York, fingers flying across a piano and a sense of delight. His smile left me with butterflies flitting over my stomach, leaving cloud-light kisses and traces of yellow and sunset orange. He brought out everyone’s inner child, for better or for worse. And when you needed someone to listen, he was always there with words like sweet remedies.
ii. He was smooth to touch, a polished surface and an easy smile. He was the kind of boy that didn’t have to do much to make you feel pretty. He was the kind of boy that could be your best friend and the love of your life at the same time. And when he was gone, he didn’t leave butterflies that needed to be tamed, but the peaceful wash of the ocean that comforted the knot in your stomach. I learned too late that his appearance was merely a cover for his jagged heart, and when I tried to smooth it down, he paid me no heed. He believed that he could only fill the empty holes with attention and love, and I knew he could not be saved, not now at least. We knew it wouldn’t last, but when I remember him, it is always good. He was the kind of boy you love forever, but always at a distance.
iii. He was cheerful and charming, the perfect romantic. The good boy, smart and sensible, everyone agreed. I fell in love with the spray of freckles smattered across his cheeks and how his hazel eyes faded to green at the bottoms. The way he spoke to me convinced me that I was the only girl he would ever love, and a smile that wrapped me in warm blankets and sang me to sleep under the stars. He was protection, safety, home. We were alike in the sense that when we loved, we loved deeply and truly, and even when it was over, it would linger. We are still friends, and I would trust him with my life. That much will always be the same.
boys that will always have a piece of my heart // can you guess which one I still love?
Hi guys! I know I said I might be able to post something earlier, but I’m waaaay too tired and nothing‘s coming out right now. So I’ve decided to take the pressure off a bit. I’m taking a little break (from posting, not writing) to catch up.
I’ll be posting a new chapter on Remedy, Savages or something new entirely on Wednesday probably! (maybe sooner, but definitely not later!)
On another note: Thank you guys soooooooo fucking much for all the sweet messages (mostly regarding Remedy) It’s so great :) There’s some heavy stuff some of you are dealing with and I can hardly believe that this story, my writing, is helping in some small way. It’s so incredibly motivating! Even if my inspiration on a new chapter is stuck right now, it’s still inspiring to read it all. Your comments, likes, messages, etc make me want to write more and I always get so giddy reading them!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. (I can’t say that enough) I love you guys :)
