This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.

It’s 1:02 in the morning.
You should be here,
Under my blanket of white
Red and black,
Tucked in tight.
You should be here,
Your sleepy head on my pillow
And your heavy eyes
Sinking to a close.
You should be here,
As I play with the ends of your hair
And your breath deepens
And softens all the same.
You should be here
I could lay my head on your chest
Listening to your slowing heart beat
My sweet lullaby.

It’s 1:13 in the morning.
You should be here,
I would lift the weight of the world
Off of your stubborn shoulders
And hold you securely to me.
You should be here,
As my fingers slowly trace your jaw
And my eyes your sleeping form
Trying In vain to commit it to memory
You should be here
When my eyes start to close
And my head loses it’s race
With the tide of thoughts.
You should be here
As my anxiety disappates
Simply because
I can feel you against me.

It’s 1:22 in the morning
You should be here,
Sleeping soundly
As I start to both
Fall asleep
Fall in love.

Sometimes when she’s sleeping, I kiss her on her shoulders, the back of her neck, her cheek, anywhere and everywhere. I play with her hair and run my fingertips up and down her sides. I think the highest of hopes for a future together with her. I listen to her heartbeat and play with the fringes in her clothes. I cuddle up against her, holding her, and truly think to myself that she’s the only thing keeping me from floating away. So, hopefully, if there is some sort of higher power, they know that I loved her even when she wasn’t looking; I’ve heard that true character is built when no one’s watching. Maybe this way, I’ll be judged for the way I love, not the ‘who’ I love…
