Walking on eggshells has taught me that biting my tongue, makes it difficult to speak. And I, have never been the type to be seen and not heard.

In the pit of my stomach, where butterflies used to reside, now remains a hollow space with their dead carcasses.

Thank you for letting me see myself in ways I've never been able to comprehend. And even when it wasn't about the good in me, you still continued to love me regardless.

I can't picture my future when I can't make sense of my present. But, I remind myself that things can always be worse, even when I feel like a crumb on the floor, being picked apart by ravaging pigeons.

It's okay, not to be okay. Allow yourself to shed the pain like old skin and reawaken anew.

We're all broken souls waiting for the one who'll help us find new pieces and be patient enough to mend them back together.

Apart, we are an unsolved equation with no meaning, but together we make a brilliant solution with purpose.

Your love has always been too big to contain. And I'm too much of a hopeless romantic to leave it.

I may lose my mind, make mistakes, act before I think but I'll give myself the room for imperfection. Often times, we are too critical and need mercy from ourselves.

Give me your truths, for they satisfy my hunger. Leave your empty promises at the bar, where the air is filled with cheap perfume and despair.

This month, this day will forever go down in history as many were killed, wounded, caught beneath the rubble. How can we forget those who risked their lives, those who were lost in an attack while others witnessed it with disbelief on television or heard it on the radio as our jaws dropped This day, will certainly not be forgotten.

You planted yourself in my heart and you've grown roots so deep within me that to completely take you out would mean cutting pieces of myself.

To the one who ripped away my innocence,

I was taught to respect you, to love you, to trust you yet the only thing I learned was how to keep a dirty little secret. The biggest mistake I wish I never carried.

Yes I can make it on my own without you but I choose to make this journey alongside the man that can love me even when there are times I can't love myself.

People expect long lasting relationships when they don't want to do the dirty work. How do you expect to know someone, really know someone, when you don't make the effort to get to know yourself?

Today was promising. He's been sober for 30 days. After 17 years of deception, he finally looked me in the eyes when he spoke and made me feel important in his journey. I know he needs this and being away for this long has been hard. 60 more days to go. But I can't even think that far ahead. One day at a time and today...today was promising.

Our understanding doesn't come from the words we utter, but from our actions as they speak in ways where our words fall short.

I'll still love you, when you pull away. I'll still love you, even if I'm in the cross fires and you don't mean to lash out at me. I'll still love you when you can't love me back. Because I have no expectations of anything in return. I'm overflowing with it and that's always been my strength. Not weakness.

When you left, I felt a loneliness and an emptiness in my rib cage that I cannot describe with words. But cleaning out the cobwebs to make room again, doesn't seem like an option either.

I never searched for love, but you appeared in my life when I least expected it. You smelled like love, you felt like love, but you had no idea how to be in love. Not even with yourself.
