"I want to be the first thing you touch in the morning, and the last thing you taste at night."

I spend most of my day thinking about the way you referred to your couch as ours, because I belong there now. The way you look at me when we wake up or when I walk into a room. Instead of not feeling good enough, I am quite certain that my limbs were made for yours and that no one will take care of you the way I - keep my promises and mean what I say - stopped trying to figure out what it meant to be alone or left, because you were on your way to walk into my poetry class to show me that happiness doesn’t have to be so fleeting and that I am deserving of -
"Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself."
