I should learn to be selfish

sometimes it feels

as if my everything

will never be enough

so I dig in for more

and from the depths of my soul &

bottom of my heart

I gather the last breath I have

just to gift it

right back to you.




You should know by now that it’s just the way things go. they taste the universe inside you and then get comfortable basking in your glow until they decide they don’t have enough light to give back. and yet they still take. your scent and skin and the taste of your lips and give nothing back to fill up the empty space they leave after they take and take your everything away.
