1. I am selfish.
2. I am not looking at the bigger picture.
3. My mother felt this way, my father felt this way, and their mothers and fathers felt this way, so what chance was there for me?
4. I seek what is not there.
5. I make what is easy difficult.
6. I am looking for attention.
7. I think playing victim is charming.
8. I cannot let go.
9. Too much of me is spread between too many.
10. I do not let my bruises heal. I like how my skin feels when it is scarred.
11. He looks at me and I go limp with passivity.
12. I do not know how to touch, only how to be touched.
13. I pushed myself away to make room for others.
14. I try to make sense of myself to strangers who are not listening.
15. I have escape routes for getting out of my house, my friendships, my relationships, myself.
16. I ruin things for myself out of fear of them being ruined by others.
17. I expect Poetry to take care of me.
18. I am not trying hard enough.
19. I like the way this feels.
20. I want to be.

We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It’s a death trap.

Seven years ago
We scratched our names
on a pine tree
out at the Grand Canyon

I returned this year
to see if I could find it
but I didn’t like
when I found it
My name was still there
and yours was eroded

It seems even time
forgot we were together

But I still didn’t scratch your name back in — The Whiskey Writer (via the-whiskey-writer)

I think we’ve officially reached that annoying time in the year where it’s sweater weather in the morning, but by midday, if you wear a sweater, you die from heatstroke.

you all deserve someone who isn’t embarrassed to love you and tells all their friends about you and saves your selfies, whether they’re good or bad to look at when they miss you and loses sleep to talk to you and tells you how much they love you all the time and i really hope all of you find that one day because you all deserved to be loved

I used to finish a whole bottle of alcohol just to forget your name but now I cant even stand the taste of alcohol because all I fucking think about is you.
