It's not like we're dating
And our relationship is just mutual and platonic,
So why do you affect my mood so much?

You determine if I feel social enough to talk to everyone else
If I feel confident and joyful
You determine if I feel silly and all giggly
If I feel careless and depressed
You determine it all because I'm so clingy and attached to you

But why?
Feel free to share revision ideas :)

One step out of my comfort zone
But a step into making our bond stronger
Give me an inch yet I take a mile

I stay alert and cautious
But my walls fall and I become too clingy

You leave and I don't know what to do with myself
Bored and sad I wait patiently for you
Struggling to resist the urge to blow your phone up with messages
So I refuse to talk to anyone else
Until I hear from you first

I sit here now sad and depressed
Over something so ******
All because
I'm too clingy
Stanzas and format are weird and I doubt this makes sense but oh well.
Feel free to share revision ideas :)

Cling tight, fear of falling, fear of flying, fear of being, and fear of leaving. I cant stay without wanting to leave and I cant leave without wanting to stay. You hold me and I push. You push and I cling. Always wanting what I cant have. Life calling for me and me clawing at it in response.

Duct tape...
My heart is like
Duct tape
My love may seem
Feeble
Minuscule
And very unnecessary
I am a tool
That seems to have no use
Till you need me
Then I become an adhesive
I can hold you together
Spiritually, mentally, emotionally
And if you’re lucky...
Physically
But then...
You will complain...
I don’t match your swag
I’m worse than a
Band aid
My grey color bores you
Now you’ve ripped me from you...
Duct tape...
As strong as I’ve been
Holding onto you...
Is as strong I’ll be
Once you remove me from you...
And I will NEVER hold onto you
Again
So every time you fall apart
Spiritually, mentally, emotionally
And if you were lucky
Physically
You will want my adhesive to return
But it won’t...
I won’t
I never return
I am nothing more than duct tape
Feeble
Minuscule
And unnecessary
Till you see my love
Holding onto someone else

there’s no such thing
as a perfect timing;

it’s just timing.

we say perfect when it
only favors
the way we see things
and not how life sees it.

we have to understand
that apart from
the joy life brings,
sometimes
timing includes

pain,
suffering,
regret,
and anxiety

and it’s okay.
it’s time for you to feel that way.

my dear, we’re stronger.
please if you read this note, please send me hugs and assuring messages down below because i’m not feeling so good

i love your musty scent
your well-tanned body and stylish jacket
you’ll always be with me
next to me
no matter where i go
i’ll revel in the knowledge that
you’ll always be mine, humble archive
of wisdom—the book

Give everything you have,
Give it to them,
That’s what they deserve,
Not just their own happiness,
But yours as well.

Cute
Beautiful
Amazing
Perfect

When you call me these things
I melt
Because I'm used to

****
Fat
Annoying
Clingy
