I never believed the whole idea that history repeats itself. But it’s true. I thought to myself I’d never been so scared in my entire life but that’s a lie, I had been before. The pain in my stomach, ribs, shoulder and head is too similar. I remember it all too well so I shut my mouth. I don’t speak because I’ll regret it. I’ll regret it again, but I wish he was here to hold me and take the pain away for a little while. But I can’t tell him. He’ll say it’s your fault. You’re the idiot. He’ll get angry. He’ll take it out on me. I just wish he was here. It’s all too familiar.

I always believed that we would find our way back to each other every time. But this time it felt final. Like I would never see him again, or that when I did, it would be different - there would be a mountain between us. I knew it in my bones. This time was it. I had finally made my choice, and so had he. He let me go.

One day we’ll both
forget the storms we danced through.
You’ll find a nice girl
to fall into peace with
and you’ll forget about the days
we lost our minds together.
I’ll be across the world
and still know the exact moment
it happens.
I’ll pretend that I don’t
and I’ll forget you
the way I forget every dream
I’m not brave enough for.
I’ll meet someone who reminds
me of the years I gave my best
to a boy who held me like he meant it.
And I want you to know that it
could have been you.
That it almost was you,
but we didn’t know how to be good for each other
and how to stay that way.
In another world, it is you,
and we’re better for it.
I hope you know that I wanted that.
That a part of me always will.

I get way too sensitive when I get attached to someone. I can detect the slightest change in the tone of their voice, and suddenly I’m spending all day trying to figure out what I did wrong.

Reasons abortion should be fully covered on all insurance plans:

  • If you can’t afford an abortion, you definitely can’t afford a pregnancy
  • If you can’t afford an abortion, and are forced to carry a pregnancy to term anyway, you sure as hell can’t afford a child

Who the fuck do you think you’re really protecting here?

*slams tankard down on the bar* GODDAMN FUCKING RIGHT
