I used to write poems about you

"I think I am surviving
in all the wrong ways."

- wtm, ten word poem

Where do you go then?
"There were winters less cold
than the sentences I wrap
around myself and I honestly
don’t know how to treat my
body any better. Most nights
my skin is screaming and I
pretend not to hear a word.
I can’t help but wonder how
relieving it must feel to be in
love with everything inside
of you. How beautiful mirrors
must look when you finally
start to forgive yourself."

- wtm, I can’t help but wonder

"But the truth is, I’ve never spent
this much time trying to figure out
a person. And I know my eyes are
often buried in poetry books rather
than in other people’s eyes, but it’s
just that I’ve never liked the idea
of looking at the only part that gives
away everything about someone
before they tell you it’s okay to find
out. The truth is, I will never tell
you how I feel about you and this
is not because I’m terrified. I am
more scared of stumbling over my
words than I am of you not feeling
the same. My hands shake harder
than my words make sense and
I don’t know how to tell you any of
this. I just hope you will find out
one day without me saying a word."

- wtm, I’m not good at opening up

Anoniem: I just wanted to say thank you. Whenever I fall apart and feel like self harming again, I look at your poems and I feel less alone and I can relate to most of them and it just gets me through. So thank you again. -Shay

Thank you. Thank you so much. You have no idea how much this means to me, but please remember that you are the one who gets yourself through it. You can do so much more than you think. You are a beautiful person and you deserve all the wonderful things life has to offer. I am here for you if you want to talk. Keep fighting.

"I have been taught to spend
my life acting the way people
expect me to. I have grown
up learning to apologize for
everything I feel. Sometimes
that means putting my mind
five steps in front of my
heart and forcing it to follow.
Sometimes that means
ignoring my feelings that
are all over the place."

- wtm, growing up and learning how

Ten word poem

Whenever I go through my blog I always realise that my writing has changed a lot, but my feelings haven’t at all and I end up feeling sad and disappointed in myself

Anoniem: Things will get better eventually. I know it doesn't feel like it, but they will. Don't lose hope.

Thank you, lovely. I really appreciate your message and I will keep trying. I hope you’re well ❤
