WE ARE ALL IN THE GUTTER

BUT SOME OF US ARE LOOKING AT THE STARS

That’s when I understand that I have been stained. Whether I’m still in love with him, whether he was ever in love with me, and no matter who he’s in love with now, he changed my life. He showed me how to get lost, and then I showed myself how to get found.

I just hope that one day—preferably when we’re both blind drunk—we can talk about it.

You don’t ask people with knives in their stomachs what would make them happy; happiness is no longer the point. It’s all about survival; it’s all about whether you pull the knife out and bleed to death or keep it in.

Incredibly excited to start a new chapter in my life.

Even if you know what’s coming, you’re never prepared for how it feels.

This is my apology letter to the both of us:

I’m sorry I kissed you in so many beautiful places. I wanted to ruin them for you. I wanted you to taste me every time you saw the stars, or a hidden cliff, or the moon on a lake. It didn’t occur to me that the heavy nostalgia would weigh on the both of us.

I’m sorry I made you say goodbye to my face; I thought you’d see my tear-stained eyes and have a change of heart, but it ended up hurting so much more after hearing everything aloud.

I’m sorry it took so long to let you go, although this apology is really just for me. You hurt me once, but I dragged it out. I don’t know what I put your heart through, but if it’s half of what I did to myself, then you deserve this apology, too.
