"I'm well acquainted with villains that live in my head."


I’ve gotten
Good at hiding
Emotions;
It’s what I do
Best.

Combed with
The fact that
I’m a charismatic
Coward, I was
Fine with
Keeping my
Feelings to
Myself, even if
It meant heartache
On my end.

Heartache is no
Stranger to me.
To be honest,
We’ve grown
To be
Good friends.

But in the
Middle of twilight,
Hugging you lose
And trying not
To smile and
Giggling like a
Schoolgirl
In a serious
Moment,
I realized that
Maybe,
Just maybe,
I might be able
To spend time
With someone
Other than
Heartache
For the
First time
In a very
Long time,
And that
Gives me
Back
Some of the hope
I decided
Was foolish
To keep around.

I care for you.
And I’m sure
I could express
It with
My own mouth
But I’m bad with
Words without
Pages.

Words can be pretty
On their own,
But they’re stunning
When they can
Be held
In your fingertips,
Read again, and again.

And I hope
That if
We take
A bad turn,
You can find
This,
Read this
Once more
And know
That in this
World
That can be
Too bright,
Too dark,
Too loud,
And too quiet,
There’s at least
One warm smile
That’s eager
To help,
No matter
What.

@KawaiiCooper Hey Logan, this was really good! (as usual.) And I told you so with that note, huh? Anyways, amazing writing as usual. I know you will go somewhere with it, someday. I miss you so much and I hope you are doing well. I hope we can talk soon. All my love, Katie :)
