(war)ning: i'm a small war

"You should not
have to rip yourself
into pieces to keep
others whole."


You and I are once in a lifetime.

No one gets it. Sometimes I don’t even understand but it makes sense - all of it.

I am wild and you are so tamed. When I fly, I want to go as far away as possible and never come back. You soar but you always manage to find a way home, meanwhile I don’t even know who or what home is.

At times it is when I’m with you and sometimes it’s when I’m by myself too; but my choice is you. For now and forever, I choose you.

I want to love you until my bones become fragile and brittle; until we sit on front porches and reminisce on the first time we met and when we almost walked away from each other. But I couldn’t, I just knew there might be something more. And I hope there is, maybe you feel the same and that is why you are choosing to stay. Whatever it is, I’m glad you’re still here.

Your arms feel like a warm shelter when it rains. I hope you find a permanent home in me too.

"She’s the kind of girl a guy meets when he’s too young, and he fucks up because there’s too much living to do. But later he realizes she’s perfect."

"I wish I could be more. But not for you. Fuck you. I want to be more for myself."
