the numbers I have
built my life around
but it knows when I am being kind
and when I am treating it wrong.

Perhaps the fact
that I chased a boy
who ripped me to shreds
says a lot more
about me
than it did about him.

her muchness
waste away
as she wished
she was someone else.

he was afraid of
commitment
with thirteen
tattoos
on his body.

Michelle K., Commitment. (via michellekpoems)
How scary it is
to learn how to trust yourself
all over again.
To stand at the cliff,

You are believing in your ability
to step back and move along.
You are believing in your ability
to love yourself again.
