“To you I’m just collateral damage in your endless battle to find yourself.”

“It has always seemed strange to me how you tape all your memories to the walls of your room. As if they would slip away if you didn’t see them every day.

The ticket from our first concert together that still has indie music seeping from the paper and ink.

The picture of the Eiffel tower you took in the winter during a particularly dark acid trip.

The plastic entry bracelet from the camping site where you got so wasted with your friends you lost the night sky.

You cover your walls with tokens of happy days. Tokens of love and adventure. Tokens of heartbreak.

But souvenirs can only last for so long, darling, and, loneliness clashes horribly with white paint.”

“You promise yourself fear will never stutter in your heart.

Not ever again.

You’ll cling to neon dreams and iridescent fairytales.

Hope will stick to your honey lips and turn every word they grace into courage.

You’ll be so goddamned brave, light will have to make room for you.”

You are, without a doubt, my most wonderful mistake.

Babe, you shine so bright, one day you’…

Babe,
you shine so bright, one day you’re going to make the whole world go blind.

We say ‘I love you’ as an excuse to keep hold…

We say ‘I love you’ as an excuse
to keep holding onto lies disguised as promises.

We say ‘I love you’ like an apology
for all the pain that
we will cause each other.

We say ‘I love you’ instead of goodbye to pretend leaving wasn’t always the plan.

Darling, love is supposed to build you up, no…

Darling,
love is supposed to build you up, not tear you down.

please, oh please,
have the courage to choose the truth even when it hurts.
fairy tales have a way of wrecking you in the end.

You once said the door was open. As if that wo…

You once said the door was open.
As if that would bring me any comfort.

Said I could leave whenever I wanted to.
Knowing you wouldn’t even try to stop me.

Let’s play pretend, my love.
We’ll run in circles until the music fades out.

You’ll hold me tight for all the dances we didn’t get to complete.
You’ll look at the sky and search for my smile.

Look here…
This is me walking away

‘Someday’ you spill out over lips …

‘Someday’ you spill out over lips tainted with false promises.

You smile and I fall again.
Again and again and again.
Mapping out a future where this distance doesn’t hurt.

They say hope is the last light to go out.

So,darling, I will hold onto your ‘someday’s and your ‘I love you’s until my heart gives in.

The thing is, darling, rainbows don’t always c…

The thing is, darling, rainbows don’t always come after the storm.

Sometimes dripping hair and shaking hands are all you have to start over.

So, my love,
Learn to find comfort in cloudy skies and fading horizons.
