Baby, you really hurt me
letting me think that this could have gone somewhere.
I should have known months ago
when you stopped saying hello and started leaving me on read.

I would pull back
but would keep hanging on
thinking this was going to go somewhere.

If you weren't serious all you had to do was tell me.
Instead, you left me outside waiting in the storm.
Having second thoughts should have been the first sign.
Thinking I deserve someone that does not leave me on read,
but at last, I was too naive.
So I stayed waiting by my phone and waiting for that light.

But now I realize it's just too cold out in this storm.
I tried being an adult asking where do you wanna go from here,
but I guess you just didn't have to time to answer me.
That's okay, maybe I won't get this past year back,
but I have too much to look forward to than worrying about someone who just doesn't care.

Baby, you really hurt me
thinking that this was going somewhere.
Baby, don't worry I can tell you don't care about me anymore
the way I believed you did.
Baby, don't worry I'm woman enough to realize I deserve better now.

six months ago,
you grabbed my hand,
you pulled me in,
you spread your hands across my thighs,
and you smiled.
“we should move downtown”
“together?”
“yeah”
I’ve always wanted to live downtown.
I want to live with you.
Now you want me
to live downtown with you.

four months ago,
you gave me back my keys.
we never moved downtown.
I haven’t seen you since.

today
I moved downtown,
to a different downtown
a million million miles away.
I wonder if you’ve moved.
I wonder who you’ll say that to next.

Could it be...
Me who decided to make a change?
Me who knew nothing would ever be the same?
Me who set goals and accomplished them?
Me who can finally say I forgive him?
Me who put the pieces back together?
Me who sees you and feels forever?
Me who continues to grow?
Me who finally allows emotions to show?
Me who now smiles at the person in the mirror?
Me who knows life couldn’t be any clearer?
Me who makes a difference each and everyday?
Me who overcame all the obstacles along the way?
Six months ago I started a journey
One to win you over
Twice you called me by my size
Left me crying, made me feel worthless

Six months ago I started a journey
One to help you fall in love with me
My body has evaporated to half it’s size
Do you see me now, I done this for you

Six months ago I started a journey
One to capture your heart
I’m still traveling to reach my goal
Your eyes glinting, you’re falling for me now

Six months ago I started a journey
One for there to be an us
Don’t wait for me at the finish line
You didn’t see me as a person then
I’m too good for you now

I remember, after it ended
I would check

check up on you
see how you are

scour your Instagram feed
in the hopes of finding out you were lonely

I would check if you have seen my
most recent Snapchat story

or wait for the notification that
you liked my post

but yesterday

I uploaded, an image of me laughing
genuinely laughing
and i didn't check.

& even though you said
You'll always love me

& even though our hands
No longer grasp each others

& even though your lips
No longer caress my neck

I still find myself
Searching for your face

I still find myself
Listening for your laugh

While resting on your side of the bed

With Primroses planted
In the palm of my hands

& Tulips *******
In my mess of tangled hair

I ask my mind
If it would do me some kindness

& forget about you
With your stained tee shirts
& kind eyes

& if it would just
Omit all the sweet words
That danced from your lips
& swam in my head

Only than would my heart heal

Only than would I remember to move on

With dirt crusted onto
The bottom of my feet
I dance in our garden

& slowly pick the weeds
From my heart

Even though I remember you

with clarity

I know you’re desperate for love
I am not
You have no career
Except to find enlightenment
The only thing we share
Is religion
But I am trying to heal
I am trying to have a career
I am trying to live my life
The drama
That our relationship had caused
Many a thing.
Causes headaches
And heart ache.
Sleepless nights
I cant take it anymore.  
This is a
Dear John to a monk.

It's finally over,
I'm breaking out of you,
You were a cage in disguise of a shell.
You were coated gold,
I couldn't see the black beneath you.
I thought you were a shell of light weight,
But the truth was you were actually not there;
To protect me neither love me.
You made me believe that love was still.
But, little did i know that love was a nonchalant tornado.
guess you don't know what true love is
