Do not fall in love with people like me
We will take you to
Museums and parks
And kiss you in every beautiful place
So that you can
Never go back
Without tasting us
Like blood in your mouth.
I thought of texting you
"good morning, I can’t sleep"
and then I remembered
that you are on a journey
which I am not a part of
and that’s okay
I can’t sleep
People change us. It is a rare, if not an impossible occurrence, that we come out of relationships unscathed. In our dealings with people we take something with us and we leave something behind. Some people are haunted more than others, either by the sweet perfume of another or the stink of regret.
Your mind has a way of not letting you forget things you wish you could. Especially with people. Like, you’ll always try your best to forget things that people say to you or about you, but you always remember. And you’ll try to forget things you’ve seen that no one should see, but you just can’t do it. And when you try to forget someone’s face, you can’t get it out of your head.

Forgiving others is easier when I remember that I’m human and stupid, too.
I have done bad things. I can’t take them back, and they are part of who I am. Most of the time, they seem like the only thing I am.
Everyone else isn’t you. It turns out that’s a huge problem for me.
It takes time to realise you love someone. If you’re lucky, it happens before they’re gone.

A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves.
