We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.”
– Khalil Gibran
Love has left yet another scar,
I’m still unsure of why I let it in every time when I know how it ends.
Amidst the uncertainty, I’m certain it’s not meant to scar.
Something inside of me still lets me believe in it.
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
– James Baldwin
There’s always a reason why they can’t be what you need
But they always need you to be everything to them
We must let go of the life we have planned…to accept the one that is waiting for us.”
– Joseph Campbell
From you, I learned.
I learned that to the wrong person, you’ll never be good enough.
I learned that not everyone has a heart as big as mine and that’s ok.
I learned that words mean nothing when they’re not backed up by actions.
I learned that loving a selfish person can be mentally and emotionally exhausting.
I learned that being taken for granted has nothing to do with me and everything to do with you.
I learned that I have to be my own support system.
I learned there’s really a thin line between love and hate.
I learned to love myself enough.
You’re holding back
Pushing people away
Painting them ugly
Questioning their motive
Because you’re still holding on to him
Hoping tomorrow he’ll want you again
You’ll be together again
He’s all your heart knows and craves
Wake up, darling
He doesn’t want you today
Stop holding on to yesterday.
A pretty face
And a soul that lacks depth
What a flaw that is.
When loneliness shows up,
It knocks on the void in my heart.
One that was once filled with the warmth of love,
And the peace that companionship brings.
I long to fill that void.
If not with love, with a feeling that equates to it
Because the longer it stays,
Hatred and resentment take over.
Are you really in love?
Or is the idea of wasting the time invested keeping you?
