let’s spend our week nights eating cereal on the floor
when there is a perfectly fine table behind us.
we can go to the movies and sit in the back row
just to make out like kids falling in love for the first time.
we’ll paint the rooms of our house
and get more paint on us than the walls.
we can hold hands and go to parties we end up
ditching to drink wine out of the bottle in the bathtub.
and slow dance with me in our bedroom
with an unmade bed and candles on the nightstand.
let me love you forever.
I loved you so much. I gave you absolutely everything I had and it wasn’t good enough. I loved you more than I loved myself. I would have done anything for you, and you threw it all away. Over what? Because I made a statement that you didn’t like? Because I maybe felt like I wasn’t good enough for you, and when I told you you just gave up? I thought we would last. I thought you loved me like I loved you, but I was wrong. You don’t destroy the people you love. I don’t understand where we went wrong. I don’t understand how you could spend everyday with someone and then one day act like they meant nothing to you. Teach me how you got over me so quickly because I’m dying to get over you. Maybe I’m better off without you, but it doesn’t feel that way. And yet I still keep trying to fix us. I still keep trying to put the pieces back together. I still stay because I don’t give up on the people that I love. I’ll always be there. Despite the fact you gave up on me.
