Metaphors My Mother Never Taught Me


On the days when your body feels like a broken hour glass

and all you want is to tip it over and let the remaining sand spill out,

think of how many good minutes you still have left.

Heartbreak is like rain: eventually it dries up and disappears through the cracks

of whatever pieces your heart still contains,

replenishing it for next year.

Never trust a man who howls at you like a wolf

without treating you like the moon.

The only fingerprints someone should dust on your body

should be the fingerprints you want.

But your body is never a crime scene. And you are never the criminal.

Any scars on your skin are not periods. They are not the end of your life story,

but instead are hyphens, joining pain with the good to come.

The sound of your own pulse may alternately

crescendo and decrescendo, and some days you may want the music to end,

but keep on listening.

It’s the most beautiful symphony you’ll ever hear performed live.

"You shouldn’t hate another women because she is beautiful and you shouldn’t hate yourself because another women is beautiful. Like, that’s the trap that women fall into so much and they are like ”She is so beautiful I hate her”. I could never say something like that about another women. I celebrate everyone’s beauty. Celebrate their beauty and celebrate your own, find the beauty in yourself."

"it’s so late and i’m terrible tired and
i have to drag my bones out of bed
in a few hours but
i can’t help thinking that
you are laying in bed thinking that
the world is better off without you,
that you’ve barely made a dent in
the history book pages and one day
your name won’t belong to you anymore,
and then here i am,
wondering if you know that
i am wondering if you know
that i think the world is a love
letter folded delicately around
your fingertips, not yet quite opened
but then here i am,
wondering how on earth
you could think everything would
be better with you gone
when i can’t even picture
what colours would look like
if you disappeared.
I love you beautiful…"
