It is time
to say goodbye to moons
that are laced with honey and blood
and to welcome the sun back.
The dark was beautiful for a time
but moonlight is cold
and won’t sustain life.
It is time
to come back to the daylight.
The stars all died long ago
and are too far away
to give out the heat
that warms and placates
and comforts and heals the hearths of hearts
It is time
to dispel the darkness.
To greet the dawn with open arms
and our approaching mysteries
that are brighter than moons,
than anything knowable,
and feed both life and heart.
—'and our approaching mysteries' by A.J. Brodie - poem 16 of 26 of 'the partially destroyed collection'. (via ajbrodiepoetry)
No I don’t wanna be in love
I’d rather be alone than build a broken home
then hold it on to you like
I could never let you go
Say what you wanna say
Show what you never show
Let’s be honest here and say what we already know
Your heart is somewhere else
It’s not like i couldn’t tell
Can’t give you all my love when i don’t even love myself
Trapped in each other’s arms
We got the best of us
We keep each other warm
but we both know it’s not enough
I LOVE the line “took our broken hearts and put them in a drawer” BECAUSE THAT HAS BEEN TAYLOR SINCE SHE MOVED TO NEW YORK AND I’M SO HAPPY SHES HAPPY AND SHE PUT ALL HER EXES BEHIND HER AND SHES SO STRONG AND IN SUCH A GOOD PLACE AND HONESTLY I CAN’T ASK FOR MORE THAN THAT :’)))))
He brought them to her every day.
Their love blossomed like any other flower in spring.
Everything was beautiful.
She noticed them but said nothing.
If they ignored them, it was possible that the unwanted would become the nonexistent.
Nothing was wrong.
She pricked her fingers on them.
Every promise they had made each other died out as her blood trickled to the floor.
There was no beauty in this.
I follow broken hearts,
Like a blind man in the dark.
All I see is a part of me,
That I want gone.
I try to fix their broken hearts,
And I simply ignore mine.
Am I selfless? Or did I just pass up on mine?
Or is it because I’m afraid if I tried to fix mine, I will end up causing more harm.
Fixing my heart; demands opening my heart and letting go of all what is causing me pain.
Admitting that alone, hurt a little.
I’m not selfless, I’m afraid of what’s still living on in my broken heart.

I can’t tell if it’s worth it anymore
You didn’t love me, you never loved me. Because you don’t hurt the ones you love. All you’ve ever really done was cause me pain. You only came to me when you didn’t have anyone else, when you were ‘lonely.’ And stupidly I let you back in, because I hoped that this time would be the last. You always came first in my life, always. There wasn’t a person who came before you. I chose you, every time, every god damn time. And you, you never even chose me once.
today i saw your face
and i could see the happiness in your eyes
but when you looked at mine
your smile faded
and you knew i was about to cry
i laughed and shrugged it off
but not once did you ever ask why
