this might be a disaster waiting to happen but I’ve been waiting for so long…..needed you to survive once….I erase my mistakes right after…I don’t hold on to bodies I never long for…I’m afraid to feel all the feels you once gave me. don’t touch me…don’t tempt me..how does it feel to be loved by you now? is it better? is it different?…you don’t like arguing that’s all we use to do I hold it all in & then boom!! you know that you know me …you know me ..like really know me … I don’t think I ever let someone see that vulnerability…you broke me & misplaced me…lost me somewhere in between distance & fear…

by the end of the year we lose contact we find each other again no “where have you been” just “welcome back” …”can I see you?” someone said we have to make room in our hearts for the people we love & for who they love ….could you? for him he will always be the comfort I run to when no one else is there to listen truth is I’ll rather have a best friend than a man ..maybe the thought of being vulnerable to where I have to invite you to feel me not only physically but emotionally is terrifying ..I know that’s why you hesitated to think you might have something worth keeping it’s only right to fuck that up too it’s only right to pull a you on you… but you can’t substitute what cannot be compared when it’s only one of its kind…

I can’t look at you without crying
I am apart of you
you have all the good parts
the way one tear slides down your cheek innocently when you are broken
knowing there will be plenty more to come
knowing I won’t always be your place to run
my heart will be aching too
when you find comfort tell me you’re safe
promise me you will always find a haven
create heaven wherever you go
be the peace

I’ll start each day with you…
1.waking up to your face & smiling because you are always the first thing I lay my eyes on…
2. Sade – (By your side) playing in the background then we go outside to the sun shining brighter than the day before…
3. we walk the beach & eat strawberries
4. we walk back into the house & it smells like breakfast the way grandma use to make it but it’s our daughters cooking , laughing & cracking jokes
5. We hold eachother hands & pray
6. we work & work
7. We cook dinner together I do one half you do the other in between we share kisses , conversations about what we love & who we love
8. We eat & eat
9. We shower together & do karaoke
10. We stay naked & make love until my voice cracks
11. We dream
12. We repeat
