“You swore the future would wait for us.
Swore it would be enough to hold onto sandcastle promises and volatile tides.
Swore the days we spent in bliss would turn into an eternity built together.
But, darling, time flew by so fast we never even had a chance to catch it.”
“In the end the words we didn’t speak were the noose that took the last breath of whatever love was left between us.”
“To you I’m just collateral damage in your endless battle to find yourself.”
“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.”
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.
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.
We both chose to get lit on fire, but somehow I’m the only one who got consumed into ashes.
I’m consumed by you, darling.
And there’s nothing left for me to give.
