That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.

It wasn’t good, he wasn’t good, he did not have good intentions. I stood there, and he stood there. He breathed out the bitter air that makes women doubt everything, and I breathed it in, as I had always done.

I’m replaying every second over in my head
and sleeping where you did in my bed
forgetting had always came easy in the mornings
but it’s been three mornings
and I keep wondering
if I’ll get just one more.
you said, “I have to go”
and I said, “just ten more minutes”

just ten more minutes to feel love
even if it’s only for a night.
just ten more minutes to feel
something
even if it’s
not right.

I know I promised I wouldn’t feel anything but I never expected to feel everything // d.a.h (via whisperingbones)

he was the only man who never asked about my past,
we skipped the interview questions:
who is the boy that makes you stare
out the window when that song plays?
why do you sit up in the middle of the night breathing deep?
why do you flinch when I slip back in bed after I get a cup of water?
why won’t you write in front of me?
how many men have kissed your neck?
do you think I’m someone you could love?

he was the only man who never asked about my past,
he just told me my wrists were thin and delicate and
they probably carry more weight than they show.
he told me that I cry in my sleep
but he wipes the tears until they stop falling.
I said, “I cry when I laugh,
I’m just dreaming of stand up comedy
and strawberry cake.”

he said I reminded him of his favorite memory as a child:
running towards home through a field,
sunburn on his shoulders,
an empty water bottle in hand,
stopping half way to catch his breath.

the last night I fell asleep by his side,
I’ll never forget him looking into my eyes
and whispering,
“I finally made it through the field,
I think I’m almost home.

and I wondered if that was the moment he realized that I too was becoming a memory that he’d spend far too much time trying to relive//d.a.h (via whisperingbones)

dear me

when you wake up
and forget how to look at the world with warmth,
when it takes all of the energy you have
to turn off the alarm and open the blinds:
remember this.

when you forget to eat for days and push in your ribs ashamed,
when you look in the mirror
and see your stretches coming back,
the vitamins you take every morning,
the anxiety medicine in your purse
when you can’t fucking breathe
because you had that dream again
and you can’t fucking think straight
because you feel that breath on your neck:
remember this.

when you can’t sleep and stare at the ceiling
playing your past like a projection lit by the glow of your phone,
when you feel like your wings were clipped
by a man who never asked before climbing into your bed,
when you’ve gone months without writing anything
and months of doctors appointments on your schedule:
remember this.

remember that you may still be young
but your bones have held you so strong
please don’t ever let them stop whispering,
please remember this:

you are stronger than this.
you deserve more than this.
you fought the war before it began
and you’ll celebrate the victory long before it’s over.
you
are
my
hero.

sincerely, d.a.h  (via whisperingbones)
