I encourage you to go out and get your heart broken.
Fall in love.
Fall so hard in love you forget the world.
Love vigorously until you are shaken,
your heart stripped from your ribcage
Swear that you will love until the day you die.
Imagine being caught in a eight to five schedule, with two children, a house in the suburbs with great schools nearby, imagine family vacations with happy pictures.
Leave him because you’re insecure.
Because you like to be unhappy
You can’t possibly be happy.
Leave him because it’s not logical.
Because he got too clingy
Because he cared too much and you don’t understand that,
You just weren’t raised that way.
Meet strangers and slip into their beds
because you need them to fuck you as hard as you hate yourself.
Slip into the mouths of boys who don’t know your name
No one can break your heart,
you won’t let them touch it.
Cry until your eyes are red and raw,
cry until you don’t remember how to breathe.
novels documenting your journey. The new you.
Because you need to document your resuscitation, carefully.
Realize that you do not need anyone to love you.
Realize that you are not who you were,
Pick yourself up, rinse yourself clean
Repeat (after me)-
You are not broken
You are free
