You don’t know how lovely you are
I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart”
You are the world, shrunk into a human.
Why do you have to search for smiles outside yourself then?
Don’t get consumed by what other people do to you, be your own consumption.
You are enough for me, so let your little heart dream, of not the man who kissed you yesterday but the self who has been with you since years and will be there tomorrow. Don’t let that self, bend down.
You are a survivor; you can survive anything and everything. Rise above the love that hurts you, the hatred that stops you and makes your mind wander hopelessly amongst the flocculent clouds. Walk out of the mind corralled with the thoughts of someone who does not care, of something that splinters your spirit.
You are a map, find the empty spaces and fill it with the happiness not given by the ‘other’. Perfuse the ocean with the echos of your soul. Occlude the States not with the bright light that blinds you like the darkness, but the sunlight that fuses life into the body each morning.
Yesterday he held your hand and he felt good, he kissed your neck, your ear and his heartbeats escalated. Today, hold your hand and make yourself feel better, turn your head away and don’t let the scars of his kiss remain.
Walking away is difficult, but it is not impossible either. Leaving memories behind is harrowing but they will fade with time.
Work on yourself and let the love, love you; let the care, care for you; let the brokenness surface you in a way that it heals you.
Be your purest self and I will love you the way I loved him yesterday, the way I carried his heart in mine, the way I took care of the new book I bought; the way, I take care of the words I write.
You are the world shrunk into a human and a single person cannot break this world down.
