    I didn’t make my bed this morning
    because I couldn’t. Because your shape
    was on my sheets, my pillows smelled
    like aftershave and I wasnt sure when
    I’ll behold you again.

    I didn’t make my bed this morning
    so that I would be able to sleep
    next to you tonight,
    even though I’m not
    next to you at all.

    He tells me how he feels
    ashamed as he explained his
    struggle to find the right words
    to express his love for me.
    Behind every cliché line and
    overused metaphors he scribbled
    on the Christmas card he gave,
    I know there is something so
    precious between us that language
    itself can't name. So I treasure
    every word he gives me like
    they are pieces of himself,
    because, goddamit,
    at least he tries.

    He feels that his failure
    is more devastating to him
    than it is to you. So when
    you find him with his fists
    in his hair and his heart
    in his mouth, remind him
    that his worth is not in his
    words alone but in his heart,
    and you wouldn't have him
    any other way.

    His touch was a
    transitory evocation
    of summer days.
    You could almost smell
    the promise of heat and
    passion. As the winter
    coldness kisses my face,
    I think of his breath like
    the summer breeze
    whipping salt unto my skin.

    To this day, 14 months
    and 2,756 miles away,
    no one makes me
    ache like you.

    On some days,
    when the fog and the sun and the wind
    dance just so, you’ll see flickers of gold
    through cracks in the clouds, like fine
    knife cuts, like the stories I carved
    into my arms as a teenager, quiet
    and symmetrical, violent and beautiful,
    as if holding their breath, until light
    finally bursts in a slow, blinding yellow
    ripple along the horizon. And on those
    days, if you forget the roles you play,
    and the promises you broke, and the
    lovers you left waiting, if you let
    yourself be small and breakable
    and infinite for one second, you will
    be able to see the sunrise smile.

    Know when it's time to give up.
    Treat yourself like the QUEEN
    that you are. There is nothing
    noble about unrequited love.
    You deserve so much more.
    You’re not a vulture.
    Don’t prey on a weak body
    that's too tired to love you back.

    I hate it when you use words like "let's try" or "we'll take it slow." As if we haven't already screwed each other up, as if we don't have scars, scorch marks and blood beneath our fingernails. Romanticizing forever like we didn't know the sulfur taste of the abyss, as intimately, as infinitely, like each and every hope that has drowned to it. Love should not be a gamble to see which of us is the most breakable.

    I am taking back
    every word
    every fevered kiss
    every promise
    every spark
    every hope
    that you stole from me,
    when I was too naive to realize
    that giving was an option.

    I am carving my
    declaration of independence
    from you, into the walls I put up
    when you left. And if we ever
    meet again, know that I am
    who I've become
    inspite of you,
    not because of.

    Please forgive me
    when I see you again
    if I treat you like a stranger
    my heart is so used to missing you
    that touching you this close again
    just feels so surreal,
    it almost feels criminal .

    Let my collarbone be your confessional.
    Leave your d e m o n s here.
    I will cradle them between my
    shoulder blades. Let the bed be
    sweat-stained, fear-stained,
    sin-stained, and shaking for the
    hundred and one reasons you
    never had the courage to name.
    I will drink the venom of your
    tragedy and turn it into spring
    water in our throats.
    You are safe.
