“Maybe the truth was, it shouldn't be so easy to be amazing. Then everything would be. It's the things you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth. When something's difficult to come by, you'll do that much more to make sure it's even harder--if not impossible--to lose.” ― Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride

I was in your town

for the first time

in what seemed like forever.

I tried not to think of you,

but I couldn't avoid the sting in my chest.

The way my smile turned into a frown.

The pain I felt when I saw you.


You were everywhere but,

You were nowhere.

You were what I saw

when I closed my eyes.

You haunted my dreams,

so I stayed awake.


You were my pain.

You were my suffering.

You were my hate,

but you were never mine.

I wrote this a year ago and as I see this now I realize just how far I've come in accepting my feelings, not only in love but in myself.
