my username isn't what you think

all the time you spend being sad you're missing out on being happy.

“You have
galaxies inside your head.
Stop letting people
tell you
you cannot shine.”

– "For all those self doubters, take note" - e.m.f.p (via wanduring)

“I said I’d never write about you again,
but I suppose I’m just as good at lying
as I am at leaving.
I’ve forgotten what your voice sounds like.
I always criticized you for not letting go,
as if the weights around my ankles
weren’t made of my faults
and everything I wish I could take back.
You told me today that
you’ve found love again.
I hope he finds flowers growing
from all the cracks I created
in your heart.
I hope he sees galaxies
in the darkened voids
I left behind your eyes.
I hope he understands
that you are full of splintered doors
on rusted hinges
that need to be loved and not repaired.
I hope he is nothing like me.
I’m sorry my words left scars.
I’m sorry my silence
reopened them constantly.
I’m sorry I was too busy
loving myself,
instead of loving you.”

– I’m sorry I did not know what love meant. (via christopherevan)
