I should have left
when you told me I was nothing
to sensitive
When you only wanted me
without my clothing
Should have known
When you twisted my words
To make me feel as if I were to blame
Gaslighting and grooming me for your own
eating my soul
Touching my skin
Making me feel so ******* alone
I hated myself every minute
But still couldn’t pull my hands away
Skin and body and bone
I was yours
I knew you were wrong
Yet still I knocked
Every time I heard your voice
Every time your hand manipulated mine
I broke like glass
Each shattered shard
embedding into my growing places
Making even breathing backbreaking
When I stopped going to classes
Stopped talking to friends
stopped eating
I should have understood
The fog lifts slowly, and when I saw the light I wept

i have forgotten
to linger 
in love 
with you
in a past life
wanting only 
to be found worthy 
of your affection
revere your touch as holy
like goosebumps 
in the italian sun
to write melodies
and ballads
and captions
not of purity, not of beauty
but of how you make me feel
forget all the rest
all the fighting
all the ugly
all the words
we didn’t mean
for i am ill 
when you are not around
and it is poetic enough
that you are broken 
yet you are
what makes me whole
seeking feedback on this one! not sure if the ending hits quite like i'd like it to. open to critiques/advice. thank you x

In the nights when the stars come
And heat from the sun is almost gone
You and I go for a walk
The world around us falls fast asleep
But we are content
in eachothers company
The moon high above seems to whisper
kiss her kiss her
And so you do

I love him
I tell myself
I know that
We will be together forever
I don’t believe that
We could be separated
My thoughts tell me that
He’s the love of my life
Sometimes my heart lies and says
I could live an eternity
Without him
Like my friends say
“We’re perfect for each other”
And you can’t tell me
He’s not the one.

Now read from bottom to top.

It seems as though I'm at a crossroads
I do not know yet which way I'll go
Each place seems foggy
Its path unknown
I wish I had the eyes
To see the others end
But for now I guess ill wait
At the crossroads

Happy
             thoughts
                           slide
                                      happily
                                                down
                                                        the
                                                                tips
                                                   of my
                                    eyelashes
                       and tougue.
          Look at me.
                     I am glad to be here
Look at me.

In a hush of whispered lips you told me of how he hurt you.
All I could say then was how I wished I could take your pain away.
But now I see you shining in the dark, illuminating the path for me to walk and I am grateful I am not alone.
