Stay

“Stay. Don’t go. At least try to try.”

Some times separating yourself from a situation seems like the best thing to do. Going away, leaving behind everything seems easier. But it’s so important to understand the beauty of trying! Staying and fighting for someone you love, something you desire so dearly. It also proves that that person or situation was worth fighting for. If not, then at least you tried. Efforts are the tangible currency of love, I believe. Beautiful art by @louijover .

After You’re Gone

Discovering your brown boots
And one by one
All the things you left behind
Books and keys
Clothes and receipts
Crumbs of us.
Some of you and some of me.


This was a surprise sort of short poem that just came to be because I was thinking about how it is the little things that remind us of the people we no longer have in our lives. It doesn’t always have to be a better half, these verses work for every relationship we’ve ever had that was so close to us. That we see the crumbs of a past frequently every day and we miss that person every single time that happens.
