I have too many flaws to name,
larger through my own eyes.
But the one flaw that suffocates me slowly
is the way I give too much of myself
to people who never deserved me at all.
There’s a certain stubbornness that
never allows me to learn my lesson.
So, here you go, take it!
I would have given you part of me anyway.
I cannot get away from the moment that haunts me. The day we ended stalks my thoughts, stuck on replay, volume full blast, and god, it hurts. Years have passed but my heart says it was yesterday. My life is the same, yours has moved on without me, but I cannot stop missing you like crazy. And it’s crazy, isn’t it? The way I’ll never see that look in your eyes again, the one I swear was born from us. I will never see those eyes again. I will never see the you I knew, only who you are now and the pretend to be friends hug. The awkward eye contact that says, I remember loving you so much, I never did learn how to stop. #stephaniebennetthenry
I am an angel
in My Mouth.
One day you’ll figure out that
you don’t need anyone to show you
who you are. You’ll see, I promise.
You will look into the mirror and
finally be in love with the person
staring back at you.
That day will be the beginning
of who you’ve always been.
I want to give you the light to my soul
so you can still see me
when I’m at my darkest.
The greatest lesson I have learned is to never hide parts of myself for any reason from anyone. It is never worth it to cheat yourself. It takes years to unfold the pieces you were too ashamed to claim and when they rise back up to the surface of your true colors, holding on is still a dull struggle. #stephaniebennetthenry
There is no code to crack open the secret of life, darling. Figure out who you are and then be that person with all of your heart. Believe in yourself so much, not even the world can bend your spine into doubt. You. Always be you. Anything less is wasted time you will never get back. Please don’t ever conform into the box life will try to draw around you. Life is the box; let it imitate you.
Hell is when I get into bed at night
and I am alone with my thoughts.
I put on headphones and listen to
something beautiful, but you know
hell doesn’t like anything beautiful.
Between the Lines
I fall in love with people
who read between the lines.
The ones who actually get
the deeper meaning
that’s hidden everywhere.
I adore a person who
can listen to a song and
not just say they love it,
but describe the meaning
of what they just heard
after listening one time.
That’s a soul you don’t
come across often enough.
I don’t know where I belong.
I only know wherever it is,
it’s far away from here.
Somewhere on the edge
of another universe altogether,
where my soul is never questioned
but it is constantly answered.
