All the people
I thought were made for me,
are not.

All the ones
I thought I’d always keep in touch with,
we fell out.

All the things
that used to hurt,
hurt less.

All the moments
I kept replaying in my head,
have faded.

All the times
I thought I would always be weak,
I toughened up.

All my friends
I fell in love with and admired,
I’ve distanced myself from.

All the things
I hated about myself,
I am learning to love.

And all the ones
I thought I couldn’t live without,
are gone;
yet I am still breathing.

Pretty much the body I’d like, thank you…

You’re single because you’re single. It’s not because you texted too much or too little or waited 33 minutes to respond because he took 23. It’s not because you met up with your ex that night at 5 a.m. that no one knows about, or because you kissed another boy after a date with a loser.

You’re not single because you spit food on that date or tripped coming out the the movie theatre. You’re not single because you hurt your first boyfriend really badly when you were 15 or because you have yet, to this day, to apologize. It’s not because you were secretly jealous when your friend got a boyfriend or that a guy you dated for two months now has a really cute girlfriend and looks really happy. And you’re happy for him. But still ill that he found someone before you.

You’re not single because you slept with your ex boyfriend. You’re not single because half the world found out when you didn’t even want to remember it yourself. You’re not single because you think the guy your friend wants to hook you up with is ugly or not tall enough. It’s not because you’re not willing to put up with someone who doesn’t brush their teeth on a regular basis.

You’re not single because your standards are too high. Good for you for having standards. It’s not because you didn’t like that really, really good guy who wanted to take you on a date and you just weren’t feeling it. And it’s not because you like to wear pajama pants as soon as you get home and wash all the makeup off your face. You’re not single because you didn’t learn enough from the past or would rather chill on a Friday night with your blanket and a cold beer than shower, get ready, and go out. You’re not single because something is wrong with you.

You are single because you are single. It’s really as simple as that. You haven’t made the connection with another heart yet. You can get dolled up, dress cute, cut your hair, dye your hair, tweeze your eyebrows, put on lipstick and you may still. be. single. You can go out to a bar hoping to meet the love of your life and not find a damn one in the place attractive. And it’s going to remain that way until it’s time for you to find one. Stop hoping for it. Start living the life that you do have instead of wishing for things that you don’t have. There will come a time you’ll meet a boy and you’ll have to give up some of this single freedom you currently have. Start being more thankful. Start doing that now. —Why You’re Single by Amanda Crute    (via moonsads)

a list of things i probably shouldn’t tell you

sylviataughtme:

1. when you told me your interests i spent hours doing research i wanted to become everything you love

2. the first time i touched you, your body burned just like a cigarette and i treated you like a bad habit i told everyone I’d give it up but i could never stay away for long

3. i always need something to do with my hands

4. when i found out you wanted to leave i told you I’d help you pack and i put my heart in your suitcase and i wished you good luck even though i wanted you to fail

5. i tried to destroy everything that reminded me of you then i tried to destroy myself

6. i watched your new love grow while holding a gun to my head

7. the hole my chest grew bigger so i tried to fill it with drugs, short-lived romances, and sad poems

8. i wish i hadn’t given my heart to you— i tried to get it back but there were chains on your fences and large dogs barking outside your door

9. i can no longer write great poems i can no longer write and i think you took that too

10. i still blame you for everything and i know you hate me for it

11. i still had those nightmares and i woke up screaming your name only to be comforted by your ghost and i killed her again

12. twelve months. it’s been twelve months and i’m still writing about you.

I love you and it’s getting worse. —Joseph Morris  (via einhorny)
1. The days will not always be happy, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth living through.
2. They will try to tell you that the night sky is full of tragedy, that the dead flames spell out a sad story. It is not a tragedy. It is miracle. Light has burned through space just so you can have something to wish on. Don’t fall in love with the darkness instead.
3. Find art in the places you thought paintbrushes could not reach.
4. When the rain comes down grey, paint the sky.
5.Love hard, but kiss gently.
6. Don’t stop singing. Even on the days when your voice cracks like a dying tree. These are the days you must sing the loudest.
7. I have fallen in love with my sadness enough times to know that it has a pulse that can kill your eardrums if you let it. Never get close enough for this to happen.
8. The birds talk to themselves and they call it music. We talk to ourselves and they call us crazy. Don’t sew your lips shut to make other people more comfortable.
9. I will not always say the right things. My hands will stutter and my words will trip over the person I used to be. But I am trying.
10. I am going to love you forever, even if I forget to hold you some days.
11. If I ever tell you not to leave, it isn’t because I don’t trust you. It’s because I am scared you won’t come back.
12. Please promise to come back. You don’t have to promise to stay. But please come back. —Y.Z, For my future daughter (via rustyvoices)

do you ever see a picture of someone that you used to be so close to and you just remember every thing you did together and all the things you said you would do together, all the late night conversations or phone calls and remember all the good things and bad things both of you have been through together but then you remember that they’re now just a memory and they’re not in your life anymore

this makes me so sad.
