Fall in Love with Your Best Friend

Fall in love with your best friend

Read her favorite books

Highlighting the passages

that remind you of her

Listen to her favorite songs

and hum the melodies

on your way to work

Fall in love with her past

Every dark corner and twisted story

Love her deeply

gently

And so completely

That she never feels alone again

⁃ be your own best friend

Letters, Personal

To the One Who Broke Down the Wall

I want to share sad stories with you. I want to feel your fingers interlaced with mine as we break down the walls surrounding our hearts. I want to pour my heart out and want you to accept everything I am, everything I was, and everything I will be. I want to lay on a blanket under the stars and talk about our pasts and our future. I want to count the stars and fill the air with smoke from our lungs. I want to fill the empty space around us with our laughter. I want to know about your passions, I want to listen to you try explain the inner workings of your world to me. I want to tell you about the the way ink spills out of my body everyday at 2 am. Show me your scars and let me tell you how strong you are.
