1. love is not supposed to be shallow breaths and spit that tastes like tears or blood dripping from your knees or throwing up in the shower but sometimes it is.
2. you can’t swallow the hollow words of the boy from down the street and want to kill yourself any less so stop emptying people out.
3. you don’t die when someone tears into your heart and that’s the worst part of it all.
4. looks can kill. when he smiles at you like he doesn’t remember what it’s like to kiss you all the pain you thought you’d bled out 3 months before will come rushing back and tangle around you till you scream.
5. the hands that used to wrap around you while you slept can be the same hands that snap your bones in half."
