The true mark of maturity is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back.

There is this odd trend
of taken women
saying they are too much,
and how the men they love
are amazing for dealing with them.

Love should not be a responsibility.
You should not have to deal with me.
Just because a woman is wild
and free
does not mean she is difficult.
He is not a martyr for loving me
through the good
and not so good.

Some mornings I will wake up swinging,
you do not get a gold star
for still loving me.

Some mornings I will wake up like a lamb,
you do not get a gold star
for loving me.

I am not a hurricane of a girl,
you always have the chance to leave.

My scars are healing, but I’m not.

My pain was never beautiful or poetic. It was answering the phone mid breakdown and laughing like I was fine.
