Literally just be yourself. You are amazing and all anybody wants is for you to be yourself.

I loved you

I loved the way you moved

I loved the way you talked

I loved the way you did simple things, down to the tiniest details

I loved you as if you were my own,

As if only you belonged to me,

As if you were the only person around

I loved you more than life itself

I still do love you, 

That’s for sure

But I can no longer do anything about it

Because I stopped loving you, just for a moment

And in the small moment, I lost you

I let go, I let life get in our way

And it broke us apart,

Along with all of our hopes, our dreams,

And any chance at restoration

I used to love you, so very much.

Who knows?

Maybe I still do.

This piece was written at a time of absolute desperation, loneliness, and depression. This, being one of my most deseprate pieces, make it one of my favorite pieces of poetry ever constructed by yours truly.
