you better move!!

This can be a considerably difficult thing to do, especially if you truly care about the person. But at the end of the day, relationships take commitment from both parties. If they aren’t adding to you and your happiness, let go. 

I realized, I was crying over someone who simply didn’t care. I’m finally moving on. Although you did teach me one thing, to never hold on to someone who isn’t holding on to you. As for me, I know better, as for you, you lost a person who actually cared.

I think I have finally defeated this enemy of my life


I have finally cut off its hand that still held me


I have finally shed its embrace that surrounded me


I have finally burst through its shadow that kept me from growing


I no longer crave it


I no longer need it


I no longer want it


I no longer have it


I can finally sleep soundly again.

“Do you love yourself,” he asked
And the answer twitched on my lips.

“Some days.
Some days I feel like I can take on the world. Where I’m so full of light and self love that nothing can stop me from being happy. Where I feel like I can reach the sky and paint it whatever color I imagine.
Where love is synonymous with you, me, us, them, everyone.

But other days I feel so weak.
So small.
I wonder how I ever felt so great about myself or life and I find all these things that shouldn’t mean anything to me and I pick at them until I fall apart.
I wrap myself up in tattered pieces of cloth and tell myself I am warm even though I’m shivering.”

- But at least I can love myself some days.
