Seven reminders

1.    You should recognize when love starts to feel like suffering.
2.    Be careful the excuses you make for the one you love. Especially knowing that if your love for them was taken out of the picture, their actions would be unacceptable.
3.     A lot of terrible things can happen when you forget who you are.
4.    So don’t forget who you are when you give love. Don’t forget you can pull the plug if it’s draining you.
5.     Don’t let one cloud darken your home. Remove the broken light bulb. Leave it empty. The sun will arrive any moment now.
6.     Letting go isn’t as easy as uncurling your fingers. It isn’t as easy as releasing your grip. It is a meticulous undoing.
7.     This will take time. Take as much as you need.

The journey to unloving

It was desire coupled with fear,
It was reality and a dire need for freedom,
It was the sheer need for some honest answers,
The uncanny exhaustion of uncertainty and
The insolent diplomacy of feelings.
These were the things that stirred me away from my illusions,
These were the things that led me back home.

Just Incase You Have A Hard Time Breathing

He broke your heart, didn’t he?
Just like the summer, he left a little too soon.
Left you in the middle of the nowhere,
with bags of emotions and bottles of tears,
And now you have to find your way home… alone.

I’m sorry.
i’m sorry that the thorn in the roses he gave you, have you torn,
i’m sorry that your heart is hurt and like a baby, needs to be nursed,
i’m sorry that your vision of love has been jeopardized,
i’m sorry that “i love you” doesn’t mean i’ll love you forever.

So drink some tea and shed some tears if you have to,
lay awake tonight and listen to all the sad songs,
Stare into the darkness of the night, see if you can find some light,
tell yourself it’s not your fault that this is where it ends,
and maybe time will let you catch your breath.

Moving on is like running against the wind,
its hard because the wind keeps pushing too hard,
but slowly and surely, the wind will lose its strength,
and Time will come to your rescue right when it needs to.

i would help you run away from the hurt, if i could,
but i heard that pain like this demands to be felt,
So just incase you have a hard time breathing,
Place your hand on your chest and tell your heart “it gets better”.
