I can’t ask you to stay indefinitely
but I won’t stop asking for more
time. The universe is full of empty
spaces and my hand shouldn’t be
one of them. My heart shouldn’t
be one of them; my hips, the
small of my back, the base of my
neck - what terrible craters to be
so empty, especially with you right
here. I’m not asking for forever,
just a little while longer - my
fingers in your hair should be
reason enough, but I’ll give you
a few more if you need them.

Seriously, one of the most cliched pieces of shit out there is that love will find you when you’re not looking for it. And it’s a cliche for a reason. Because that shit is true. Listen to me, I spent almost two years obsessed over a guy who really didn’t give a fuck about me. I lost pieces of myself in the process of loving him too much. And then when I wasn’t looking for it at all, I was in the process of loving the other guy and getting over him, I ended up falling for one of my bestfriends. It wasn’t sudden. It was as though the tide had come in slowly but surely and suddenly it hit me. Basically, don’t love anyone who won’t give you their time and doesn’t love you back. It’s such a waste of your time and your love. I know, easier said than done. But take it from me, I’m pretty hopeless if you read all my poetry you’ll see… But love and learn, live and learn if you want, but I’m telling you right now, you deserve better than someone who doesn’t feel the same or treats you like anything less than extraordinary. Just stop looking. Think about yourself and what you love and spend more time doing those things and loving yourself or atleast not looking for love ( I know not all of us can love ourselves) and I guarantee it will find you and you deserve it so much. Someone wonderful will come your way one day when you least expect it, so relax, you’re young and we will all have it figured out someday. Take a deep breath and try to let go of anyone who’s dragging you down. Because even if they make you really happy sometimes, the sad truth is, if they make you sad very often too or let you down or won’t text you first or barely acknowledge you, they aren’t being cryptic, they just don’t give a shit. So let go because you deserve someone who does.
