Loving her will not
always be easy.

She will weave herself
into bad poetry some
nights to keep you
from seeing her without
her skin.

One day, you will
see her without
her skin.

She will pull on the
edges of herself until
she has come
completely unraveled
on the kitchen floor.

She does not need
help picking herself
back up, but the
company is nice every
once in a while.

One day, she will
show you what it
means to be made
of something so
easily pulled apart.

Some nights, she
will need herself more
than she needs you.

There are stars in
her eyes that burn like
hell if you bury yourself
against them for too
long, do not let this
stop you from seeing
them.

She will not always
be easy to convince,
she will wake up each
morning wrapped
around the worry that
your heart stopped
beating for her over
night.

She will love you
with everything she
has ever had.

Do not take her
away from herself.

"When he says
He doesn’t love you anymore,
Roll your shoulders back
And look him in the eye
Even when it feels like your ribs
Are breaking inward, like spider legs.
When he digs up old aches
That he swore he forgave you for,
Smile
And ask him why he didn’t leave you sooner.
Ignore the way the words feel like sandpaper
Running all the way up your throat to your mouth.
When he blames you
For mistakes that wear his face,
Do not scream.
Do not cry.
Tell him that there are boys
Who would be proud to say they’d loved you.
Tell him that in two years
You won’t even remember his name
And don’t let him see the way you can taste your own lie.
When he leaves
Ignore the howling in your blood
And do not get up after him.
Not even to lock the door.
Do not, do not
Do not.
Smell his shirts when you box them up
To give them back.
Not one.
Swear off dating when you realize
You’re chasing ghosts that wear his smile.
It’s okay to cry over him.
It’s even okay to forgive him.
But do not go back to him.
If he did not know how to love you the first time,
He won’t know how to do it the next.”
