Love Looks Pretty on You

First Steps

While you look at yourself through someone else’s eyes, you are not free.

If you speak the words that have come from someone else’s mouth, you are not free.

When you say yes when your heart is screaming no, you are not free.

There are things we sacrifice for love, that we willingly give. But no one who loves you will ever ask you to give up more than you are willing.

Someone who has your heart is not entitled to your body. No one lays a finger on you without your permission.

No one makes you feel ashamed for knowing the people you’ve known. Or loving the people you’ve loved. Do not allow someone to undermine your past to appease their ego.

While you continue to compromise who you are, for the sake of another, you are not free.

When you find yourself compensating for someone else’s insecurities, you are not free.

If you find yourself worrying when you have done nothing wrong, you are not free.

First, you must recognize you are not free. Say it out loud to yourself. I am not free. Tell someone who cares about you. I am not free.

This is the first step you have taken back to yourself.

Idols

You put her on a pedestal. Love her, adore her, crown her as your queen. Then you watch and wait, for a slip, a split second when her guard is down. You would tear her into pieces just to claim a fragment of her story.

No one can be perfect all the time. Why do you expect her to be any different? Why is she held to an impossible standard? Why do you take it so personally when she contradicts the version of herself that exists only in your head?

You think you know her, that she owes you somehow. That her existence is only relative to yours. But she is her own person. She lives and breathes, she hopes and dreams. She has a life, a love, a family, a purpose. And she doesn’t owe anyone a damn thing.

Where the act of sex degrades a woman and celebrates a man. The infuriating double standard where a man will admire a girl in a string bikini, and in the same breath, tell his partner that her skirt is too short

Change is the anthem of this year. For better. For worse. I am bracing myself for the crash, steeling myself for the fall.

for giving me the life
she desperately wanted
for herself?

Your love is a fire that will burn itself out. Let it ravage you.

Longing has a language
that is all her own.
The language of skin,
the language of flowers.
I am a body of longing,
a vessel of language.
For you, I am calamity
in a locked box

There is no telling how you will love when you do, if you will let it consume you or free you. If love is a chain-link fence or a pair of wings. If love comes on a Monday morning or a Sunday afternoon. Who knows what gifts or sorrows it will bring?

The most beautiful thing is not when you learn to live without something; it’s the moment you realize you never needed it in the first place.

I hope when the darkness comes for you, it will hit you twice as hard as it hit me. And I hope you will curse my name, knowing I was the one who sent it.

I love you in the way that not a single word comes to me, without sounding like hope. I love your hands, not quite sure, and your curious, candid eyes.

Had You
Last night I had a dream that felt like a memory. A glimpse of what could have been. Crossed signals from another life.
Where instead of all this, I had you.
And life was exquisitely simple. And we were
