Favorite Quote:
There is freedom waiting for you
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?

~Eric Hanson

At first you will have to pretend

Like you are taking care of you

Because you think you deserve it

You will have to pretend you

Aren't trying to impress him

Or win him back

Or make him jealous.

It will be hard

Because he won't notice.

Boys never notice.


Eventually though

You will realize

You are worth it

And you will forget about him

And the way he once held your

Heart in his clumsy hands

It will stop stinging when you say his name

And you will love yourself

The way he should've

And that's-

That's when he'll come running back.

And by then

You won't need him.
