Our new reality is you’re a fucking moron. Its one thing to not like or respect someone but its a whole other thing to feel that way and still attempt to use them as if they have an obligation to you. How stupid could you be? How stupid do you think that I am? (And…

When you begin genuinely, just like he said, you’ll never know from the start where it will end or how When you begin with something on your heart and in your mind but you’ll take whatever it gives you just the same But me I’ve been searching for peace up mountain tops with my soul…

Battle not lest ye become…

I stare at you like you’re wounded and I am going to eat the flesh from your bones as soon as you get dizzy and weak and fall into my arms. I don’t like you anymore. Before, I wouldn’t make eye contact, couldn’t even, because I did not want you to see the fact that…

Mon plaisir…

You were the cleverest, most charming wordsmith that I had ever seen. Nobody loved you and hurt you as much as me.

You like hanging onto nothing The boy is peanut butter in your hair Do not text the runner up when you are in this frame of mind Do not text the back up and tease him with your lying Do not text number two, or three, especially not fucking three Don’t become the vision you’re…

My crush on the Drop Bear

Man, so now I want to fuck with him because I don’t want to fuck with him because of you. Look what you did. Ugh. This is pretty much your fault you know that right? Yeah, he’s liked me 6 months longer than I have even known you. Yeah he texts me beautiful shit a…

And that’s how bad habits start. You’re emotional. Someone notices. Someone pretends to help. Someone makes an offer. You accept. You know better but you’re not practical.
