it is the bravest thing in the world, to do what you want.– AYN RAND, the fountainhead
this is what today is.
a pink comb through black hair
I lay my life next to his in the snow in the sand (her silhouette her star-kissed shoulders; and he’s folding magazine pages into airplanes I can’t wish upon) these paper heart girls he carries their tears in his pocket in a vial of colored glass his kisses stain like rosepetals sighing and wilting in my cupped hands april lulabee
I TRY SO WHEN I DIE I WON’T HAVE TO ASK, WHY?– april lulabee

The One You Wanted to Be Is the One You Are, Jean...
poetry365: She saying, You don’t have to do anything you don’t even have to be, you Only who are, you nobody from nowhere, without one sin or one good quality, without one book, without one word, without even a comb, you! The one you wanted to be in the one you are. Come play… And he saying, Look at me! I don’t know how… Their breath like a tree’s breath. Their silence like a...
you'll never know how much I really love you.
9: 11pm April
wish we didn't start this until after we both had our own places and had settled in our lives for a bit
9: 11pm April
cause therein lies the greatest problem
9: 11pm Jj
do you think he would have been a nice guy if things had happened that way?
9: 11pm April
we were just impatient
yeah, or it wouldn't have been such a big deal if things didn't work out
9: 15pm Jj
ahhh, yeah patience...such an important thing that people never want to use because it feel like any magic or rush of feeling. i always think about how many silly things that became big problems
could have been avoided if i had a little patience
9: 16pm April
9: 18pm Jj
its sad when people get mean to each other, when they could be so much more.hopefully a little time and space will make him sorry?
9: 18pm April
I don't know
I wish I could just let him go
cause that's what he wants
and I do too
but what I wanted was such a more stronger feeling
and the difference is just past tense, I know, but it's always now
9: 24pm Jj
i wish i had some great warrior advice about how to let go, but like i said i'm no good myself. all i can offer is friendship, if you want some help, someone to talk to anytime when you are having a tough time with it
9: 24pm April
I wish he had someone to talk to
he won't talk to me about it and I can't blame him
I just make him feel even worse
9: 25pm Jj
he doesn't have anyone to talk to?
9: 26pm April
I don't think so
his friends are kind of selfish with him
they always look to him for inspiration or motivation
I'm sure it gets really exhausting
9: 28pm April
and I have no self control, it's the waiting that makes me awful it's like a slow festering that I can't heal and it's just a mess by the time he actually calls me on his way to work or some other thing that you can't really get into when you only have 10 minutes to talk to someone but he wont' talk to me any longer than that because of my little jabs, I'm just awful.
9: 30pm April
sometimes he makes me feel like I'll never be able to really love another person, because if you love someone, really love them, you can overlook their flaws and you accept them and you don't hold everything over their head or remind them of every other time they hurt you and I don't dothat with him and he makes me feel like I'll never be deserving of love because why would he keep doing the same things, why would he not do what he says he will do? is that love. it's not.

poetry365: In the dark, she shivers in his arms, hurt, wild—like that great bird that crashed through the living room window last Christmas—droppings, slivers the whole way into the kitchen. He’d cradled it wearing gardening gloves, it only shuddered. Now, nothing he says quiets her, stops her asking: am i pretty? am i smart? am i all you dreamed of? as though she doesn’t know, as...
I want to live in my own place again and paint the bathroom teal and the bedroom pink and have a little orange cat and the windows will have white lace curtains cheap poor man’s stained glass and mismatched dishes and silverware and there’ll be a tent with pretty lights and a bed with warm blankets and squishy pillows but before all that happens you can move here and then we will move...
