I’m trying to let you go.

But God helps me because you won’t let go even though our time has ended.

1. When a boy who leaves goosebumps on every inch of your skin tries to play you his favorite song, don’t let him. He’ll get it stuck in your head and under your fingertips and when he leaves, you won’t be able to listen to it without feeling like you’re choking.

2. Don’t let him touch you all over no matter how much you want to feel him against you. Leave a few spots untouched so that when you’re sleeping alone again, at least your left wrist and an inch of your right hip won’t sting with the remaining burn of his mouth.

3. Don’t let him break your ribs.

4. Don’t watch the sunset with him. He’ll poison it. You won’t be able to look at the sky without swallowing a mouthful of him.

5. Don’t mistake wasps for butterflies. Sometimes when you feel your stomach flutter and your hands start to shake it’s pain, not love.

6. Just because he tells you he loves you doesn’t mean he’s going to stay.

7. It’s okay to delete his number after he kisses the pretty girl he met when he was drunk. It’s okay to leave when he hurts you. You don’t have to keep falling into him.

8. When he tells you that you’re beautiful, try to remember that you were beautiful before him too.

9. Just because he reads and smokes cigarettes and talks about the stars doesn’t mean he’s your soulmate.

10. After you kiss him, remember to wash your mouth out right away so he doesn’t burn into your tongue.

11. He’ll kiss you in the rain and take you to little coffee shops. He’ll brush your hair out of your eyes and kiss your nose. He’ll grab your waist and whisper in your ear but six months later you’ll find yourself drunk texting him that you miss him and he won’t respond.

12. Your heart is going to break a million times. It’s going to feel like the world is falling apart around you. Your lungs will stop working some nights. You find yourself grabbing at your bones trying to hold yourself together. You’re going to feel like you’re dying. It’s going to be okay. You’ll find someone else to kiss you goodnight.

for future reference
How many days has it been 
since you regret ever
wishing to grow up? 
Now finger painting 
and smashed crayons sounds 
pretty fucking fantastic 
when compared to
bills, paychecks,
stress
and 
traveling down this lonely road 
we hope to be a happy 
future.

For you to claim not feeling so much, your writing expresses so much emotions that i believe you feel a lot more than most of us. You have such a beautiful insight in relationships and it's nice to be able to read your writings and think in my head, " I can relate to that".

I feel things at inappropriate times and often, about things that usually don’t matter to others. Heh, it’s a quirk that comes with not being able to concentrate on one thing at a time. But thank you for your words, even more so, thank you for reading mine.

I don't think you're being stupid because there are suppose to be days where you don't feel anything to regain the ability to feel again. It's a paradox. You lose feelings only to regain them again. You're not stupid. You're amazing.

I didn’t expect this. But thank you for making me feel better anon :)

Today my friend told me she feels too much and I found myself thinking “I wish I could be the same,” because most times — as of lately — I feel nothing. Absolutely nothing. And I can’t help but be jealous of those who feels because on certain days, I feel like I don’t even fit with humans.

Maybe I’m a robot. A cold and awkwardly functioning robot.

Does anyone feel the same? Or am I just being stupid again.

you make yourself out to be
an unfinished duet. but
if only you could step back,
one step,
two steps,
three.
and listen
to the harmony
that makes up every surface of your skin
– consonance –
and those crimson tint on your cheeks,
then you’d realize that you were never unfinished.
nor were you ever a duet.
you are a beautiful melody
that has a life of its own
and it’s a shame that
so many are unable to appreciate your true artistry,

but that only means that for us who do,
we’re the lucky ones to have heard your symphony.
I love you.
At what point in a relationship should you move on because you're not happy in it?

At the point when you’re not happy in it.

I think this is an infatuation —
I can’t stop
thinking about the curves of your
lips
your green irises or
your soft hands.
I want you so much that
my mind don’t know what to do
if I can’t 
have you.

There are days 
when memories of you
still put needles 
through broken pieces
of my heart. 
And I tell myself 
I hate you,
for having so much 
power over me 
even though you’re gone. 
But I don’t. I don’t hate you. 
So I tell myself to forget. 
And I do. Days later. 
Only to wake up one morning
and remember again.
