i don’t laugh so easy anymore and everything
takes just a little more effort
and maybe some of the same things still make me happy

but nothing’s really been the same
since you forgot about me.

i never started smoking because my father’s teeth
are stained yellow-orange and there is a persistent crow
living in his chest which
constantly rattles its feathers whenever he tries
to speak

i was always cautious about drinking because my mother’s uncle
died with his liver shouting for revenge
as his body coded on a hospital bed
so i space out the times i take shots and i don’t give in
if it’s not a weekend and i keep bottles away from me

but i loved you
instantly

and of every addiction i’ve ever had
this one is killing me.

I still love him but he moved on, maybe I should move on too.” // r.i.d (via inkskinned)

the late nights will be filled with orange juice and vodka but
when your eyes meet hers i know you’re gonna fall
and galaxies will collide inside your bloodstream
because she’s all that you want and all that you’ll be

and baby
i’ll remember you on the nights where
there’s not enough oxygen inside my bones again
when i’ve got trouble breathing because
i want your lips pressed against my skin in
the same way they’ll
never be again

and i know her perfume will smell like roses because
you always loved the things that came with thorns and
i know that she’ll make you laugh until your sides ache
and you’ll want her more than you can say

and baby
you’ll forget all about how i used to be the only person
who could calm you down about anything or how
on an august night you promised you would love me
until the sun died

you’ll love her and baby
this will all seem like a soft blow
because it’s been so long since we crumbled
that i don’t even know if these ruins
were ever home

and you’ll love her baby because
you’ve got a heart as good as gold
and you’ll love her baby and

i’ll sit here remembering
how i used to be
yours.

If you want to be friends with me you don’t have to be “Hi, um, can, ya know, we be friends?”

It is 1000000000000000000000% percent ok if you just go into my inbox can go. “Man, I am so fucking pissed off at fucking Larry.” And I’ll most likely respond with, “Oh shit! What did Larry do now?”
