We are all finding our way
in the darkness.
I might be blind, but I trust
my other instincts.
The only problem is
I have a knack for trusting people
before they've earned it.
In the end, I always
learn my lesson.
And I know when
it's time to walk away.

We're in this together. You aren't alone, even if you've been burned before. Tag a friend you trust.

I thought I knew you like I knew myself. Like my soul is entwined with yours in a cosmic knot. I thought I could read your face like my favorite book. The one with the worn edges, coffee and tear stains. The one I always have handy. But these days, the language and syntax have changed to something I don't recognize. Even my soul feels twisted around, making me wonder if my heart ever really knew you. The real you. And what hurts the most is that I'm afraid with each passing day that everything was a lie.

Sometimes you find that the one you loved was a stranger all along. But there's also the ones that stay constant. Tag your person.

And I felt it. The deepest sadness, the mind-numbing pain, the violation, the degradation. I believed it was truth, deserved, and yet, I survived. Though I relive that pain daily, I'm still here, begging the universe to let me feel something else. Anything that could be defined as good, pure, and above all, something to teach me to breathe again. But for now, I'll breathe fire, because it means I'm still alive. Still fighting.

Keep fighting. Don't let it all be for nothing. I've been through hell and back and I know you can find your way back too. Tag a friend to let them know you'll fight with them.

Having emotions doesn't mean you're weak or less of a human. Having empathy doesn't make you a pariah in this world, it means you care. It means you understand that other people feel too. And sometimes they feel just as much as you or more. So don't ever try to shut them down or hide them away in the dark like they're something to be ashamed of. Because they aren't. Ever. Darling, feel whatever you need to feel, because you're right, it means you're living.

It's okay to feel. It's the only way to process. Tag a friend and let them know how you feel. There's nothing worse than feeling like you have to go through something alone.

This piece was inspired by the lovely @maria_ann67. Thank you, love, for having a voice that speaks to my soul.

It's been ages since
I've held you in my arms.
To say that I miss you
is an understatement,
but what I miss the most
is how free I felt
in those moments
it was just you and me
and the air we shared.

You are my compass. My home. My everything. I just didn't know how much I needed you until you were right there in front of me. I've always needed you. And even in those first moments I saw you, I knew you were going to steal my heart. Somehow, out of billions of other souls on this earth, I would know yours apart from all the rest. That is how I knew my home was never a place. It was a person.

Everything reminds me of you. Of us. I felt alive, open, and free, uninhibited by the cruel world. And I know you felt the same. But then everything changed. There's nothing left of us but memories and countless questions of what ifs and what could have beens. What if I had the courage to stay? Would we have lasted until we were old? Would you have continued to make my heart race as only you could? As much as I try not to think of you, I can't help myself. I'm haunted by all those small things that made us real.

My eyes are open now. And I see the world in Technicolor. It's not the same monochromatic, muted tones that overshadowed my existence for as long as I can remember. It's like a veil was lifted. You. You taught me what it means to love and be loved, not used and abused. You taught me the difference between a loving hand and a fist of hate. You gave me the courage to face my demons. And though they are immortal, I have the strength to keep fighting. Because through you, I learned what it means to love myself, and how I'm worth it. I'm worth living. I'm worth being loved. I am. And I always will be.

Your lies wrapped around me
like a warm blanket of deceit.
It held me prisoner
behind a rosy filter,
suffocating me
until I had no breath left.
I'm not sure if I was in denial,
but you were so good at
killing people with kindness.
And I didn't realize the truth
until it was too late.

I don't know why, but when I met you, I knew my dreams would come true. Because you were only the beginning. Those dreams were everything I hoped my life would become. It took a long time to find you, and living taught me how important it is to dream. To hope. And in those dreams, I was taught how complicated, beautiful, and important it is to keep dreaming, to keep pushing higher. So thank you for being the catalyst that sparked the fire that fuels my soul.

Just like two sides of every story, there's two sides to this one. Do you cover the wounds with war paint, or do you bear them with your head held high, with a statement that says one word: Survivor? Which would you choose?
.
Before, I would have chosen the former, but now, I think I'd rather go with survivor.

Have I ever told you that death visits me from time to time? It's like he's reminding me he's there. Beckoning me. It's like waking up from an endless dream, and a fog is being lifted from my bleary eyes. And for a split second, I don't know if I want to go back to sleep into the dream I know — the place where I love you — or force my eyes to focus and risk losing myself into the unknown. A place I believe is dark. Void of all light, all sound. An infinite nothing. But then I remember why my life is worth living. I always choose to go back to you, because any world with you is better than nothing at all.
