the difference between me and you

When I stopped trying to look happy and started trying to be happy, you stopped trying to look happy and stopped trying. I kept everyone in the dark while you shared the darkness; dampening the spirits around you. I slowly started living. You slowly started dying.

Truth is; I miss you.

many meaningful moments

With a friend jamming out to a singing hallmark card and dancing like fools. Eating raw cookie dough and spicy Fritos. What could be better then sitting outside up against the wall of Walgreens? I can’t think of anything I would rather be doing. Tonight is absolutely perfect.

Smiles and laughter,

flightless fears of falling.

How is it that you can feel like you’re flying one moment and falling the next? Free falling down so fast you’re stomach hurts and tumbles along with you. The soar up to great heights extending beyond mountains that felt just so effortless, so pure, and so good entirely disappears. It twists and turns: an unexpected turmoil. That’s how I felt today. That’s how I feel most days lately. The highs are sparser and shorter then they use to be and the falls more terrifying then the previous ones before. I’ve already crashed and I’m slowly trying to piece together what remained. Breathe by breath; day by day; I’m more determined to fly away once more.

Slowly but surely,

high hoped hypocrite.

I’ve heard of a poet who wrote the most amazing poetry: a truly hopeless romantic. She had her hopes set too high and died alone. I’m scared that I might share her fate one day and with my last breaths die in solitary. Its not that I’m vain and think I deserve much too much, but that’s just it. I’m asking for too much. He needs to be intelligent and kind. He needs a sense of humor as corny and crude as mine. He needs to have the most brilliant eyes, it doesn’t matter the color just that they take my breath away even when all other physical traits fade with time. Every time I look in them my thoughts would become incoherent. He must be a man of religious beliefs and high morals and respect me. Lastly he must be a silly fool in love with me as much as I love him. I’m not asking for an Edward Cullen although that’d be amazing but I do have ridiculously high hopes.

I’m afraid that I won’t find him or be able to settle. Frankly, I would rather die alone then settle. What can I say; I’m a reckless teenager with her hopes set too high.

Wish me luck,
