      When we first broke up, I didn't sleep for a week straight. I visited a therapist and talked about you for hours and as she listened, I ended my speech with "but I've moved on." She says I clearly haven't and it's obvious I care or else I wouldn't have the energy to talk about you. I guess I kn...

      I thought it had all ended. I thought when I told him I couldn’t handle it and that it was a bad time, it would be over in a millisecond. But he called. And he called again. He called a third time. A fifth time and an eighth time. I tried so hard to concentrate on the bed spread I wa...

      They all laughed. I didn't really find it to be too funny. I mean what's really funny about a Brian's haircut or Brandon's shirt. If they like it, it shouldn't be mocked, it should be appreciated. But they were laughing, and when they realized I wasn't, I pretended ...

    I don't remember the last time I've written, and to be totally honest, I just can't seem to find what to write about. I've been finding myself wide awake at 3am with thoughts of you, and how this is even possible. How you meant so much to me at one point in my life, and now I can't talk to anyon...

    They say relationships are like roller coasters. They're scary and fun, they have their ups and downs, and once the ride ends, you move onto the next coaster and do it all over again. And I guess they're right. But love is not just one roller coaster; it's a whole amusement park. You ...

    It just sucks you know? I spend all my time just thinking about him. How do I make him happy? Is he safe? If he's hungry, I'd go to the store and buy every food he loves and cook it for him in his house so it's hot when I serve it to him. When I go out, whether its alone or with my fr...

    Sometimes Im settled in a dark room. Theres no light source to be found in the room. My eyes become adapted to the darkness, that once a light is turned out, it burns my eyes. I have to look away because the light physically hurts me. You're like a light. I become so immune to a world withou...

    Ive been in the hospital for about 4 or 5 days now. Maybe 6. Ive lost count. They told me that I should feel stronger by Saturday. And maybe they assumed Saturday because it is the weekend, and according to the sound of that word, my weakness would soon come to an end. But as Saturday crept up on me...

    ? You sat on my bed. You were sitting with you legs "criss cross apple sauce" just like how you learned in Kindergarten. You said you liked the idea of it cause it reminded you of innocence. You were silent and I watched your eyes as they glided from my right eye to my left eye and back a...

    Today you didn't even talk to me. When you finally looked my way, you lifted your index finger. And I didn't know fingertips carried weights but the weight on that finger you tried to lift, seemed to be too heavy even for the muscles that make up your arm. I watched you while you were l...

    I wonder if my blood has turned into whiskey, because each time that you kiss me, I feel intoxicated. Though it's cold out and I can't find any flowers, somehow you're growing gardens for hours. Look at the beauty you've created.?...

    They say love is felt by those who live in the time on Friday night dinners with someone to pick at the crumbs of the food you could barely finish. They say love is for those who eagerly anticipate tomorrow morning during sleepless nights. But sometimes I'm at his house on a Sunday morning and ...

    And when you asked me if something was wrong, there was so much i wanted to tell you. I wanted to tell you how much it hurts that you’re embarrassed to be seen with me. And how you tell me to meet you by a fence so your friends won’t see us. I wanted to tell you how I stare at you pass by me eve...

    I want to be able to live alone and not have anyone to spend my time with. I was put on this planet to live alone. To breathe alone. But so many people keep my air in their lungs and I'm suffocating the more I try to not gasp for air.? I sat in my room at nine o'clock and watched headl...

    You're laying on my bed in a fetal position. You are laying on your side with your kn?ees up to your neck and your hands between your thighs, trying to find warmth. I watch you as you're eyes begin to flutter until they finally shut. The light in the room flickers, and you can see it throu...

    I'm trying hard not to love you because you're afraid to fall and I'm afraid of heights. But as the days go on, it's getting harder to resist the urge to kiss you to the songs you play when you start to feel afraid. I can't ever love you because I am just seaweed and you are...

    I learned how to read tarot cards about two years ago. It's not like I believe in them or anything, but the strange thing is, I've given myself a reading about once a week from the day I finally learned. I find myself reading my own cards whenever I feel anxious or even excited. I guess it...

    I want you to come to my house unexpected with a copy of "Shrek". I wanna watch you as you sing all the lyrics to I'm a Believer, and kiss you as the song begins to die out. I wanna lay in your bed looking up at the ceiling like I was staring into the sky, counting all the cracks pret...

    People are like gravity. They pull you in so tight until your lungs start to bite and your heart starts to fight you.? And for the first time you'll feel special, like a work of art, like nothing in the world is capable of falling apart. Like that first kiss or the vision of the stars in the da...

    If I traveled to the edge of the Earth, and found the place where the stars meet the planet, would I finally know why the galaxy seeps through your teeth and travels to the corner of your lips? Would I finally know why stars pour from your eyes, creating constellations that lie across ...

    Why do I stare at the moon hoping that you are staring at it too, when I know that your eyes will never adjust to the light that seeps through your bedroom window? Why do I measure the size of the moon with my fingertips, scratching away the edges, and feel the need to compare it to way you m...

    It's sad how I compare myself to a toothpick whenever I think about you. Whenever I see you, or hear your name, my heart drops and I become weak in the knees. You could break me so easily, and it's sick because I know how happy I'd be just to be in between your fingertips; H...

    On November 23rd, I was on the longest train ride I had ever taken. I was heading from 231st street all the way downtown to Houston street. I took this train ride once or twice a week to visit my dad at his office, and the ride takes about roughly forty minutes, but this time it felt like I would ne...

    Every hopeful letter, email, improved report card, I would stop wishing for after second grade. All the cookies and batter I left in the oven I'd forgotten about; And they would burn in the matter of seconds. All the useless equations I learned in math class, all the pointless facts th...
