You will either be the best thing
that ever happened to me
or the worst mistake I ever made.
But what I know for now is this:
You leaving hurts like death,
but I owe it to myself to
not hold on
to what let go of me.
So today, my love,
I say my goodbye to you
too.

It is better to wait years
for the right love
than to stay in love
with someone who does not
love you
just so you can say that you are
in love.

Why did you tell me
what you did not mean
and then punish me for
believing you?

Attachment detaches you
from yourself.
Do not settle
Stop building
castles in skies
that are not your
own.

How narcissists keep you under control
After you finally
close your door,
some will come back to knock,
just to check whether you will open
or not.
If you do,
they will pretend that they
are only
visiting to see how
you are
doing.

put diamonds on her

To a narcissist I once loved
I know that you are waiting
for me to break down and
contact you.
I know that you must be thinking
that I am miserable waiting for you
to give me attention.
But, you see,
I am not the person I once was.
You destroyed me over and over,
but I built myself back up
into someone you will
never
have the honor of
getting to know.

Turn around
and walk away like you did before.
Don’t look back,
because all you will see
is a closed door.

Do you know what it feels like to believe
that you are a mistake
and that feeling pain
means that you have no control of your feelings?
Do you know what it feels like to be given the shovel
to dig deeper and deeper
only to find out when it’s too late
that it’s for yourself
and that there’s no one waiting
to lift you out of the hole?
Do you know what it feels like to fight a battle
with no possible pain inflicted upon anyone
but yourself?
Do you know what it feels like to be wounded
and told that you caused the
wound to yourself by choosing to be where
the harm landed?
Do you know what choking on
injustice
feels like?
Do you know what it feels like to know that silence
is your best choice
when your words can no longer
be held inside of you as a
hostage?
I hope you never know that feeling,
because that is how you made me feel.
And I would never wish this kind of
pain
upon anyone.

I worked so hard to understand others’ silence,
but I forgot to understand my own.
I lifted, with every bit of me,
the weight off of so many people’s shoulders and hearts, but
I forgot about my own burdens.
My bones have been bruised by the burdens I’ve accumulated.
My heart has been beating slower and slower.
My thoughts cannot bear the chaos in my mind.
So I decided to surrender.

I give up.
And if I were to hide my wings and bundle myself
back up into my cocoon, would you then try to take what I give,
understand my silence, or lift the weight off my shoulders?
