I was always someone who colored inside the lines,

for fear of punishment,

but then I smeared an edge...

and broke a tip.

I pounded the table,

But when I stepped back from the surface I played on,

Dear X,

You don’t deserve to have your name spoken inside my mouth. Instead, I will let the sounds of it drip out like the juice of a rotten fruit.

You will never know the immense damage you caused, not by leaving, but by staying for as long as you did, when it was clear...

That hit me pretty hard the other night.

No one sets out to fail, but not everyone can succeed at the thing they are trying their best to achi...

I think I’m addicted to swiping.

On dating apps, that is.
