do you ever daydream of dressing boys in better clothes

(via tinychatting)

"Your stitches
loosen and your face
unravels and your
lips fall to the tiles
and your tongue
dries to dust and your
fingers unhinge and
your chest sinks
and your mother
forgets you and your
lover takes a new
name and your desk
is given to your
assistant and your
niece asks where
you’ve gone and
subway doors close
on your ghost
shoulders and dogs
pee on your ankles
and your last meal
remains on the plate
and your wine glass
sits full and your
napkin folded and
your best friend never
calls again and your
subscriptions expire
and the letters you
wrote combust
on my shelf and the
photos of us melt
into small puddles
along the baseboard
and your closetful
of good shoes go
stiff and your father
remembers you by
a different name
and the children
we never had stop
whispering I love
you in my ear."

"If you find yourself thinking “Wait. Can’t say that. He’ll think I’m weird and fucked up.” Ditch them and find someone who responds with something twice as weird and three times as fucked up."

I was unpacking when I heard you walk in. I had on light pink lipstick that I found at the bottom of a box. You put a few things on the counter and handed me my car keys. I kissed you and asked if you could help me move the bed. You said you needed to talk. I keep replaying this over and over in my mind. I don’t think I’ll be able to unpack the rest of our boxes.

It’s been a month since you left.
Mark says you’re not coming back.
I can’t sleep.
Are you awake?

I finally went to the doctor like you had begged me to.
You were right and yeah, I’ll be fine.

I sold my engagement ring at a pawn shop today. I bought expensive lipstick and flowers. I also bought a lot of beer and a carton of cigarettes. I’ve lost a lot weight since you last saw me. My friends from high school that I haven’t seen in years hardly recognize me. It’s weird being back in this town without you. I spend most of my afternoons at the beach. I saw a sea turtle today while I was swimming. I miss eating breakfast food at midnight with you.

I stumbled across the video of you in the car singing Taylor Swift. I deleted it before it played all the way through but I have to admit it made me laugh. I can’t remember how your voice sounds saying my name. I broke down and called you. Thank you for not answering.

I dropped my cigarette in my lap when you drove past me today.

I went on a date.
He thinks Bud Light is “quality beer”.
It just isn’t going to work out.

It doesn’t hurt anymore to say your name.

Hope you’re doing well.
