LOVE + HEART// BREAK
â€œAnyone who falls in love is searching for t one whoâ€™s in love gets sad when they thin inside a room you have fond memories of
the missing pieces of themselves. So anynk of their lover. It’s like stepping back f, one you haven’t seen in a long time.” - Haruki Murakami, “Kafka by the Shore”
“Two words from him, and I had seen my pouting apathy change into I’ll play anything for you till you ask me to stop, till it’s time for lunch, till the skin on my fingers wears off layer after layer, because I like doing things for you, will do anything for you, just say the word, I liked you from day one, and even when you’ll return ice for my renewed offers of friendship, I’ll never forget that this conversation occurred between us and that there are easy ways to bring back summer in a snowstorm.” - Andre Aciman, “Call Me By Your Name”
“what i miss most is how know was how you loved person i was. it was a ref coming back to me. how here soaking in the idea that way. when it was i th showed you how to fill. th cruel i was to myself. givi ply because you had felt me strength. wit. beauty it. as if i was already not if i did not remain all the - Rupi Kaur, “Milk and Honey”
w you loved me. but what i didnâ€™t d me had so much to do with the flection of everything i gave you. w did i not see that. how. did i sit a that no one else would love me hat taught you. when it was i that he way i needed to be filled. how ing you credit for my warmth simt it. thinking it was you who gave y. simply because you recognized these things before i met you. as ese things after you left.â€?
“Once you’ve met someone you never really forget them.” — Spirited Away
“From the moment I saw her I knew this one was worth the broken heart.” - Atticus Poetry, “Love Her Wild”
You wouldn’t leave till you loved in the morning, you learned from movies how love ought to be. You say you love me and look in my eyes, but we know through mine you were looking in yours. - Mitski, “Last Words of a Shooting Star”
TWO LINE POEMS by Molly Sayers
WHY DID YOU SAY I WAS THE LAST ONE WHY DID YOU SAY I WAS THE LAST ONE...IF YOU DIDN’T MEAN IT. BEFORE: I LOVE YOU. AFTER: I USED TO THINK I LOVED YOU. WE SAID WE’D BE FRIENDS AFTER BUT I DIDN’T JUST MEAN ON FACEBOOK. WHAT MAKES ME CRY AT NIGHT IS REALIZING I’LL NEVER AGAIN SEE YOU NAKED IN THE SHOWER. DO YOU EVER WONDER IF YOU’LL EVER BE AS HAPPY AS YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE WHEN WE FIRST MET? YOU CRUSHED MY HEART LIKE A SPIDER ON THE WALL WHEN IT GETS HIT WITH AN ITALIAN VOGUE. I CAN TAKE LIES, EXCUSES, SECRETS, AND IGNORANCE BUT YOU MADE ME FEEL OLD. I BELIEVED YOU WHEN YOU CALLED ME PRETTY BUT YOUR SILENCE FELT PRETTY UGLY. EVERYTHING NICE COMES WITH A PRICE SO TO GET YOU I GAVE AWAY MY SOUL. “ONE DAY WHEN I’M A DAD I’LL TEACH MY KIDS HOW TO SWIM” SAID THE 21 YEAR OLD, BRINGING TEARS TO MY EYES.
YOU WERE THE FIRST HOPE I EVER HAD SINCE HE BROKE MY HEART. I CAN BE A REALLY ANGRY CUNT SOMETIMES, BUT SO CAN YOU, ASSHOLE. REMEMBER WHEN WE SAT ON YOUR BED AND CRIED WHEN WE LEARNED WE ONLY HAD 10 DAYS LEFT? I DIDN’T WANT TO DIE BEFORE BUT I’LL DIE 1000 TIMES IF IT’LL GET YOU TO NOTICE ME. GETTING YOU TO MESSAGE ME IS LIKE TRYING TO STAND ON THE SUN. YOUR EYES FEEL LIKE FIRE AND THE PAIN BURNS GOOD. AFTER WE TORE EACH OTHER’S LIVES TO PIECES WE SMILED BECAUSE SOMETIMES IT FEELS GOOD TO GET TORN APART. WE PROMISED TO BE KIND AFTER, BUT AFTER MADE NO SUCH PROMISE. HATING YOU BECAME EASIER WHEN YOU MADE ME MAD ANGER IS THE FUEL FOR BLIND JUSTICE. OUR LOVE FED US LIKE TWO VAMPIRES BLEEDING US TO DEATH.
