"when your little girl
asks you if she’s pretty
your heart will drop like a wineglass
on the hardwood floor
part of you will want to say
of course you are, don’t ever question it
and the other part
the part that is clawing at
will want to grab her by her shoulders
look straight into the wells of
her eyes until they echo back to you
and say
you do not have to be if you don’t want to
it is not your job
both with feel right
one will feel better
she will only understand the first
when she wants to cut her hair off
or wear her brother’s clothes
you will feel the words in your
mouth like marbles
you do not have to be pretty if you don’t want to
it is not your job
- it is not your job | Caitlyn Siehl  (via faintestglance)

I’m crying
because it could
be fourteen years
from now and I would
still taste your soft lips

I can’t stop crying
because I know that
I can’t get you off my
mind and you haven’t
even thought of me

my heart broke when
you told me you left
me because you didn’t
want to hurt me

I’m breaking down and you
sleeping so good tonight
