"It's just that...I just think that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It's the universe's way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a few holes in the road. It's how life is."


I suppose the end was inevitable,
but who knew it would be so soon.
Maybe I wanted you to fight for me,
wanted you to prove that I mattered,
and wasn’t some girl in the parade
of those waiting in line.
Already I miss your kiss, the
elegant fingers tracing my neck.
I miss your abrupt replies, your
skinny hips, and your love of
anything striped. I miss the
boy I fell in love with, not the
one he became.

But I guess
that’s where my greatest mistake
resides. Setting my hopes too high
and putting my faith in a boy
who had none.
