This piece is for all the times we’ve ignored the little voice inside of us telling us to leave. I know it’s hard, but let’s support each other, so that we don’t settle for relationships with people who can’t see the gems we truly are.




ain’t it funny how
after all the lessons life taught me it’s still so hard to choose myself

we barely know each other
yet i can’t seem to bring myself to pull the plug on you

as if my whole existence needed your acknowledgment to be worthy

do i really need another earthquake to come back to my senses?

learn from your mistakes, they said fool me twice, they said

get it together, girl
