I took my girlfriend to an improv show the other night and during intermission we were passionately arguing over whether half a 5 Hour Energy shot would give you 2.5 hours of energy or 5 hours of half-assed energy so we turned around to ask the opinions of the three people behind us and one of them said “Are all your arguments like this because we heard you in the lobby earlier fighting over the right way to pronounce ‘egg’?”

“Don’t take someone you love to your favorite place unless you want it to be tainted for you from then on.”

Diagnosis helped me to. I’ve accepted it in myself.

There’s something so dark in you

Accept it, cherish it

Being mean is ok, just don’t deny it.

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO LIFT MYSELF UP IF MY HANDS ARE DEAD BECAUSE THEY CANT HOLD YOURS. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO SCREAM FOR HELP WHEN MY LIPS ARE NUMB WITHOUT YOURS TO KISS.

HOW YOU HELD ME SO TIGHT AS IF I WAS YOUR ENTIRE WORLD BUT IT TURNS OUT THAT IM NOT YOUR WORLD, IM NOT EVEN A TREE IN YOUR WORLD.

God, I’ve finally let you in. And I wish I hadn’t.

you are a horse running alone
and he tries to tame you
compares you to an impossible highway
to a burning house
says you are blinding him
that he could never leave you
forget you
want anything but you
you dizzy him, you are unbearable
every woman before or after you
is doused in your name
you fill his mouth
his teeth ache with memory of taste
his body just a long shadow seeking yours
but you are always too intense
frightening in the way you want him
unashamed and sacrificial
he tells you that no man can live up to the one who
lives in your head
and you tried to change didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
prettier
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.

“And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake… You can’t make homes out of human beings.

I knew it happened when a crooked smile stopped plastering my pale face when your name popped up in my messages.
I knew it happened when I was up at 2 A.M with tears running down my cheekbone and your name wasn’t ringing in my brain of why I was trying to hold on.
I knew it happened when I could look at you with your other person and smile to know you’re ok rather than cry to know I wasn’t the one making you ok.
I knew it happened when you told me you loved me and that didn’t make my heart sink into the bottom of my stomach with butterflies dancing above it.

It was then, that I knew I no longer loved you like I once did before.

— I no longer love you (t.s)
“It’s funny how you can forget everything except people loving you. Maybe that’s why humans find it so hard getting over love affairs. It’s not the pain they’re getting over, it’s the love.”
