    one week after the breakup
    and i’m not sure how to answer her question
    except for the fact that i thought love
    looked so much like you
    that’s when it hit me
    and i realized how naive i had been
    to place an idea so beautiful on the image of a person
    as if anybody on this entire earth
    could encompass all love represented
    as if this emotion seven billion people tremble for
    would look like a five foot eleven
    medium-sized brown-skinned guy
    who likes eating frozen pizza for breakfast
    what does love look like the therapist asks again
    this time interrupting my thoughts midsentence
    and at this point i’m about to get up
    and walk right out the door
    except i paid far too much money for this hour
    so instead i take a piercing look at her
    the way you look at someone
    when you’re about to hand it to them
    lips pursed tightly preparing to launch into conversation
    eyes digging deeply into theirs
    searching for all the weak spots
    they have hidden somewhere
    hair being tucked behind the ears
    as if you have to physically prepare for a conversation
    on the philosophies or rather disappointments
    of what love looks like
    well i tell her
    i don’t think love is him anymore
    if love was him
    he would be here wouldn’t he
    if he was the one for me
    wouldn’t he be the one sitting across from me
    if love was him it would have been simple
    i don’t think love is him anymore i repeat
    i think love never was
    i think i just wanted something
    was ready to give myself to something
    i believed was bigger than myself
    and when i saw someone
    who could probably fit the part
    i made it very much my intention
    to make him my counterpart
    and i lost myself to him
    he took and he took
    wrapped me in the word special
    until i was so convinced he had eyes only to see me
    hands only to feel me
    a body only to be with me
    oh how he emptied me
    how does that make you feel
    interrupts the therapist
    well i said
    it kind of makes me feel like shit
    maybe we’re all looking at it wrong
    we think it’s something to search for out there
    something meant to crash into us
    on our way out of an elevator
    or slip into our chair at a cafe somewhere
    appear at the end of an aisle at the bookstore
    looking the right amount of sexy and intellectual
    but i think love starts here
    everything else is just desire and projection
    of all our wants needs and fantasies
    but those externalities could never work out
    if we didn’t turn inward and learn
    how to love ourselves in order to love other people
    love does not look like a person
    love is our actions
    love is giving all we can
    even if it’s just the bigger slice of cake
    love is understanding
    we have the power to hurt one another
    but we are going to do everything in our power
    to make sure we don’t
    love is figuring out all the kind sweetness we deserve
    and when someone shows up
    saying they will provide it as you do
    but their actions seem to break you
    rather than build you
    love is knowing whom to choose

    you cannot
    walk in and out of me
    like a revolving door

    if you are not enough for yourself
    you will never be enough
    for someone else

    the apology
    never comes
    when it is wanted

    and when it comes
    it is neither wanted
    nor needed
    - you are too late

    i want to apologize to all the women
    i have called pretty
    before i’ve called them intelligent or brave

    These lines are amazing.They really made me think

    Reza Faiz A Rahmanhas quoted2 years ago
    i do not want to have you
    to fill the empty parts of me
    i want to be full on my own
    i want to be so complete
    i could light a whole city
    and then
    i want to have you
    cause the two of us combined
    could set it on fire

    you must enter a relationship
    with yourself
    before anyone else
    Sarahas quoted2 years ago
    nothing even matters
    except love and human connection
    who you loved
    and how deeply you loved them
    how you touched the people around you
    and how much you gave them
    Francy Saelzerhas quoted2 years ago
    loneliness is a sign you are in desperate need of yourself

    you are in the habit
    of co-depending
    on people to
    make up for what
    you think you lack
