I can’t tell if my walls are going up,
Or if we’re just losing touch.
But this feeling in my chest
Is making me want to turn and run.
You hug me close and its like I’m trying to take off a jacket.
But I can be in a room full of people,
You’re on my mind,
And I can’t seem to shake it.
Now tell me…
How is that fair?

With you, I picture road trips with hours of neither of us saying a word, and it’s not because we’re upset with each other -Oh no.
It’s because for the first time in our lives we’ve found that person who’s presence is just as comforting as being alone.
You and I-
we’re not ones to fill our voids with another person.
We see our holes for what they are, we sit in them until we find a way to be rid of them.
We stay in our heads and build a nest there, leaving for the company of others but always returning to our quiet independence.
Being with you is being alone with my favorite book, but the characters talk back to me.
You’re all of my favorite songs, whispering back my name.
You’re all of my favorite quotes.
You’re inspiration when I misplace my own.
Because for the first time I want to be a better person, not because you make me feel like I have to be.

Because with you I know that I can be.

What you must know is that I’m actually happy. I don’t want anything I say to make you think otherwise.
But I can’t explain why sometimes I wake up feeling like i’m drowning, or how my heart feels like it’s caving in.
I don’t know why I go on walks alone and think about sad things, or why I identify so deeply with Vincent Van Gogh, but I’ll always cry over him.
I’ll always listen to songs that make a pit in my stomach, and sit in my bed alone and remind myself how loneliness feels.
I don’t ask to be sad, it’s a chemical imbalance in my brain telling me all the wrong things at precisely the worst of times.
I don’t ask for it, but I have stopped running from it.


You must know that i’m actually happy, still.
Life is a sad train ride, but i’m riding it until the end.
Even with tears collecting in the corners of my smile.

My body is trembling.
I’m trying not to cry, I sing music that is supposed to make me feel strong.
My voice shakes, and I feel the sob in my throat.
My core is tight and my fingers are numb.

Some days I’m just not strong enough for this life.

"I hope you know that i’m extremely sentimental and that i’ll take pictures of you when I think you’re thinking of something important. Or in a place I told you something that was very hard to say. I hope you know i’ll collect pebbles and feathers from the nature walks we’ll take.
I hope you know that I’ll wake up in the morning and look at the light that hits your face, and when you stir I’ll snicker like a child who is playing hide and seek and doesn’t want to get caught.
I hope you know i’m afraid of heights, but I love the air in high places. I’ll cling to your arm and be afraid to look down as I take in the deepest breath I can muster.
I hope you know that sometimes I sound like a poet, and sometimes I sound like an angsty child, and sometimes my words sound like a painted picture and sometimes they’re like trying to serve a piece of really gooey pie that doesn’t want to be served in one piece. I hope you know that i’ll have entire conversations with you in my mind, and they’ll be at least three times longer and more eloquent, and as long as they’re the same amount of real and full of truth I think we’ll be okay.
I hope you know that I love the cold, and winter, and fall; and I think i’ll like it even more if I can see the heat escape your lips in the cold air and pretend in my mind that you’re the cutest dragon I’ve ever seen.
I hope you know that songs will remind me of you, and poems, and words that have the perfect syllables that slip off my tongue and make me reminded how wonderful language is.
I hope you know i’ll go weak at the knees when you speak in French, and i’ll never be able to respond in a way that’s even half as beautiful.
I hope you know that the first time I kissed you, I kissed you as a drunken 21 year old, but also as an enamored 13 year old who liked you the minute she met you. I hope you know you scare me, in the fun kind of way, like when you’re stomach is flying around in your torso before you go on a roller coaster, or the minute they pull down your restraint and you know it’s coming soon.
I hope you know I will, I have, given you my heart. And even if you don’t want it, you have it, and you can tuck it away in a cigar box with half burnt birthday candles, and old fortunes from stale fortune cookies, because it will be safe there.
But I hope you know that I love you, and I will love you so long as there are stars in the sky, and oxygen in my lungs."

November mornings. My breath floats through the air like a cloud, it smells like fireplaces and growing up in Tahoe. The spider webs hold dew and sunlight hostage, and the leaves litter the ground like burnt paper. If only I could capture this moment, i’d keep it in a bottle in my pocket and take it out on warm summer days.

I thought about you, and laying my head on your chest, and how different the world would look from there. I know it would sound different, because one ear would just be your heartbeat, and maybe that would be like background music as if I were in a movie or a video game. Though it would probably feel like a boss battle, or at least like I was dying, because your heart beeps when you’re dying in Zelda, but maybe if I was lying on your chest I would feel like that because I’d be that happy.

It’s October 23rd at 7:52 in the morning, where you are, still sleeping in bed.
And I adore you."

Sometimes you just miss things, you know?
Like I miss the smell of the coffee we drank every morning.
And now coffee tastes like memories,
sometimes it fills me with butterflies,
and other times it’s like a rush of pain.
Like i’m suffocating from the air in my lungs.

Sometimes I miss the softness of your hands,
and I know my hands are just as soft,
and I hold my own hand and laugh to myself.

I miss a scent other than my own,
but then I find intimacy in places that mean nothing,
and I don’t feel safe, or at home.
I feel lost, and at the end of the day i’m still so much happier when I’m alone.

And maybe missing things is okay,
and maybe acknowledging them is better,
because I know that to feel is human,
and i’m very much so.
But feeling is an emotion,
and just because you give permission to feel,
doesn’t mean you’re signing a contract to act on it.

"I think the thing that stops me from trying to mend my inability to connect with people deeply, is the fear that as soon as I did I would see that I had no one left to connect with."
