There are parts of me,
that have already moved on from you.
They have said hello to sunshine,
and all the things I want to do.
But there are other parts of me
that still ache for your touch,
that scream your name behind muffled hands.
I guess enough is not enough.

Liar - Lianne La Havas

" i let him lie and it’s killing me

what more is there to do but cry “ 

(via selfloathing--narcissist)


i miss the words ‘i love you’

we were in love just a second ago

now i spend my new days painting ink portraits

of damaged and naked brown girls

you take it as a threat

as if i have the will right now

to make these wounds stop bleeding 

from the tip of the weapon that still you have not dropped from your hands.

a wonder of a man

i can’t wander here anymore 

from hot to cold to hot to cold to-

hopefully my next lover doesn’t have so many temperatures.

i was there for you for all of your extremes,

you know we shared the same fire

but this turned into just the same movie, on re-wind,

i had to pause it. we needed to fast forward

there was no way to get out alive

so there was no reason to stay

because i could not take to the conclusion that we all die anyways.

no one warns you about the amount of mourning in growth.

Current state of being. Some things are better left painted than said.

Ink | Watercolor 

somethings are better left painted than said.                                

sometimes I try to purify my hate instead                                                  

of letting it go, only to let it grow.                                                             

i refuse to turn in a black hole                                              

i will not absorb others light to replace theirs with my own pain.   

hopeless romantics, empathic recovering lover.                                        

i will continue love because i know what it is like to have lost             

knowing somewhere there is love after love for me.

Good morning all. Keep beauty in your day today. 🌞 (at Somewhere on my paint covered floor )
