THIS IS MY NEW FAVOURITE LINE
And that’s okay.
Be sad. Listen to sad country music. Read sad poetry. Drink tea and eat ice cream. Cuddle in your favorite sweatshirt and cry.
But do not stay in that state.
Embrace the sadness, never let anyone tell you that your sadness is not justified. But after you’ve embraced it, move on.
Be happy. And if you can’t be happy quite yet, settle for being okay.
Listen to your favorite song over and over again at a ridiculously loud volume. Read your favorite book. Drink tea and eat ice cream. Wear your favorite sweatshirt and smile.
Because it gets better.
We can never break permanently because there will always be duct tape.
And that’s okay.
Isnt it amazing how beautiful people are. Like just look at anyone and study them and their features and how their lips tort and eyes glisten and how their hair falls or sticks or lays. How their eyebrows flex and the way their arms fold, how expressive their hands are. The way their body moves and how their chest rises and falls so subtley with their pulse. People are beautiful even if we dont find them attractive. The fact that they’re a living being is unbelievably magnificent.
So, wherever you are, I hope you’re happy, I really do. I hope the stars are kissing your cheeks tonight. I hope you finally found a way to quit smoking. I hope your lungs are open and breathing your life. I hope there’s a kite in your hand that’s flying all the way up to Orion and you still got a thousand yards of string to let out.
I hope you’re smiling like god is pulling at the corners of your mouth. Cause I might be naked and lonely, shaking branches for bones, but I’m still time zones away from who I was the day before we met.
You were the first mile where my heart broke a sweat. And I wish you were here. I wish you’d never left.
