My cheap thrills
may be different than your cheap thrills

My cheap thrills are looking into someone’s eyes and trying to read into their soul
Into their very existence
But eyes aren’t really windows to anything
Are they?

They are but closed doors;
Trap doors, luring you in
And showing you what you want to see
For it’s not with my eyes but the brain that I see !

But when I see him
I see him

I see him for all his beauty and kindness
He’s my blue eyed boy;

See the pun I’m making here
He actually has blue eyes
Ha ha ha
I know
I know
But he’d laugh at that !
And that’s what makes him so perfect;
Perfect to my imperfect eyes
That are merely simply tools
Trapped in the maps of projections that my brain casts over him

My cheap thrills aren’t cheap,
They require me to buy bandages
In bulk
Every time I see him kiss someone that isn’t me, I swear I know what it feels like to be the hulk!

Yes I know,
Augustus waters said
That “You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world...but you do have some say in who hurts you.”
And if my heart were to look like a ball of elastic bands except covered in band aids
I’d rather have it be this way for you : )

"i am in love with you
and i know that love is just a shout into the void
and that oblivion is inevitable
and that we're all doomed
and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust
and i know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have
and i am in love with you."

In this story,
Augustus Waters didn’t die
But it felt like he did

'some infinites are bigger than other infinites'
the one quote to perfectly describe why people go through the pain of long distance relationships

i've always been scared of the unknown. but i have never felt braver than the moment i was free falling into your abyss. hands, trembling; heart, leaping out of its cage; but eyes, wide open. and they burned with a quiet determination.

the fall stripped my soul bare you could see through my insides. and in it you'd hear my heart as if it were a preacher reciting a mantra,

'I love you. I love you.'
again and again.

i've always been scared of the unknown. but this time i was brave enough to jump with eyes wide open. i knew full well that you wouldn't be there to catch me, but i jumped anyway. i blame no one but myself for my broken limbs and shattered heart. and truth be told, i would have done it again. because you are worth every fractured bone in my body.

and maybe, it doesn't have to be this way. maybe it doesn't have to hurt. but if not hurting means not loving you, then i choose to endure the pain.

because just like augustus waters said, "it's a privilege to have my heart broken by you." and for that, never again will i doubt my capacity to love.

i loved you. deeply. boundless, like the sea. i loved you. and i clung to that hoping that maybe, just maybe, you would have loved me too.

She is so beautiful,
You don’t get tired looking at her.
Even when she has tears streaming down her face,
Or when you see her just after she’s gotten out of bed in the morning.

You never worry if she is smarter than you,
You know she is.
She doesn’t even have to study the work to get an A.
But you can’t get jealous,
You’re just amazed.

She is funny without ever being mean.
She would never hurt anyone,
No matter how much they hurt her.
No matter how much pain is caused,
She’ll try her best to wake up with a smile on her face.

I love her.
She makes my heart ache is ways I didn’t even know.
I love her.
I am so lucky to love her,
Van Houten.

You don’t get to chose if you get hurt in this world, old man,
But you do have a say in who hurts you.
I like my choices,
I hope she likes hers.

What else?
You’ll never find anyone like her.

My heart ached in my chest.
It was swelling up, finally getting ready to shatter into millions of pieces.
Tears wanted to drip out of my eyes.
My breathing sped, as I tried to control my breathing.
inhale   exhale inhale exhale
What if I stopped?
What if I stopped thinking about breathing?
Would I stop breathing?

A wise man once said "crying doesn't help a problem "
So I held my tears, until I absolutely needed them.

Until my pain was 10 on a scale of 1 to 10.
Until my pain was Unbearable.
I kinda got inspired by the movie of The Fault in Our Stars for this one. I am really enjoying writing poetry for everyone who wants to listen!
let me love you like a storm,
dark,
dazzling,
domineering,
I can be your very own tempest,
I will sweep you off your feet,
I will take you to oblivion,
and love you like you've never been loved before.

I could break you,
like cracks in fine china, I
could break you,
all of you,
till you are,
nothing,
and you will love me for it,
and you will be broken in the most beautiful of ways.

I could kiss you,
I'll be your greatest pleasure,
my lips will hold yours with the promise of forever,
I will touch you like I am not meant to let go,
my fingers will splay algorithms as they explore the length for your torso,
You will hate me for it,
for make you feel this good,
but take heart my love,
one day you will kiss me,
and you will like it.

I could need you,
like barks need the north star,
I could be your star,
I will shine, and twinkle,
become yours like the careful ******* of promises,
I will never leave,
I will be constant,
consistent,
for as long as we are,
I will need you like the stars need the dark blue sky,
and some day,
when you love me back,
we will write our names in skies that stay blue,
and we will be our own forever,
stripes of dark brown and navy blue.

I can be your light,
your very own sun, wrapped in skin, bones, and tissue,
I can shine for you,
hot and passionate,
like the remnants of our love on the white fabric of our sheets,
I will heat you up,
all the way up,
but you will not tell me to stop because we love the pain,
and we will love, till it kills us, and marks us black and dark blue.

I will love you, like you are worth loving.
Every inch of you, like you are my life,
I will love with my soul,
I can be yours,
let me be yours?

my mother told me
that I should take
great precaution
because some people die
of a broken heart

what she doesn't know
is I would choose
to die
in the most brutal
and grotesque ways possible
over and over again
just to have my heart
broken by
you.

Don't tell her I said that.

He used to quote John Green

Like the cancer kid he was "on a roller coaster that only went up”

He never told me he was afraid of heights
