"I didn’t get over it, but I got used to it."
"If you can see a future without me and that doesn’t break your heart then we’re not doing what I thought we were doing here."
"but dreams don’t mean a thing because you loved me in my sleep and when I saw you two days later you looked at me like you were never mine"
"Today I saw your face and I lost my breath a little but I didn’t collapse like I would have six months ago."
"we can pretend that we’re everything
and that the universe won’t swallow us
whole one day
and that we are too full of the world
for it to ever turn on us
and we can act like there’s no such
thing as bruises
and ignore the way our skin is dripping
and act as if veins never split
and pour out every smile left in your
and when the doctor asks about the
pain on a scale of 1 to 10
it will never be more than a 4
because we are the stars
and stars don’t feel pain
and I was invincible until I met you
but if you asked me
what losing you feels like
it’s a 10
on a scale that should never
have gone past 4"
