Last night, I thought about you.
Not really a big deal, because
I think about you most of the time.
But this time was different.
You see, most of the time when I think about you,
I repeat the moment of you leaving, that’s it.

But this time I saw you laughing and smiling.
I remembered that goofy look you’d get
When I did something dumb you thought was cute.
Your laugh was echoing in my mind,
And I almost felt happy. Then the reminder came. The moment of you leaving.

The moment that I should’ve seen coming
Finally came and I laughed it off.
You thought I was okay. Everyone did.
There was not a single person on this planet
That could’ve known my entire being was shattered.
It’s amazing what a couple giggles can mask.

I didn’t come to school the next day.
Not that you noticed.
I spent countless hours staring at my phone,
Waiting for a text I knew would never come.
I was crying my eyes out and I bet you were somewhere smiling.

Fast forward two months and you haven’t left my thoughts.
We may not even talk anymore but I feel your presence.
You surround me like a heavy dark cloud,
Reminding me that you are no longer mine
And you are gone.

Flash back four months,
And we’re sitting on my couch.
I am enveloped in you, you holding me close.
Our first kiss was a passionate one.
No drug could have ever compared to your lips.

I still see and feel everything from that day.
Every time I sit down on my couch
I get a painful reminder that your lips
Are not longer mine to kiss,
And it almost feels like I am losing you all over again.

I have all the gifts you gave me, and I’m sure you have mine.
They are all locked away along with the rest of my feelings
Because if you’re not here I have no desire to feel.
I’m sorry I wasn’t what you wanted..needed.
I tried so hard to be because I loved you.

I still love you.
You just don’t know that and probably never will.
But I’m sorry.
I’m so fucking sorry for loving you.
And I’m so fucking sorry that I have to be sorry for that.

—When you left there were no second thoughts, were there? You just left. (via myth-called-love)

They say if a crush lasts more than

4 months

you’re in love.
So what happens when
I’ve been infatuated with you

for 36 months?

Have I fallen in love with you

9 times?

Or have I just wasted
3 years
36 months
156 weeks
1092 days

craving you?

You should not
have to rip yourself
into pieces to keep
others whole.

i am seeing less and less of you (via 1112pm)

She was too quiet, or she was too loud. She took things too seriously, or not seriously at all. She was too sensitive, or too cold-hearted. She hated with every fiber of her being, or loved with every piece of her heart. There was no in-between for her. It was either all or nothing. She wanted everything but settled for nothing
