it’s easy to let limitation be the dictator. like the eery sound of a silent room without vents or circulation. hollow yet substantial.
but how beautiful life can be when you simply let yourself ride. when you realize freedom isn’t about the rules made by those around you but about the limitations you put on your own choices.
run up hills, roll down them. let the air around you suffocate the dictator.

i blink vulnerability. it’s what makes me human. and it’s more endearing than you might think. a dash of doubt, a splash of lost, and a tingle in my heart that doesn’t quite know which emotion to gravitate towards.
i wish you would see it- that the runny wax from your candle heart is much prettier liquified. once reached the surface of its cold surrounded walls, the runny wax of your heart hardens. you follow your logic- that no one will break you if they’ve never seen you broken.
but one day you’ll get it- that those who make us vulnerable give us the rare chance of being human. for better or for worse. risking stabilized emotions. letting loose all that makes us vulnerable at a chance of gaining a little thing called being human. and it’s much prettier than you might think.
because this is human stuff, you know, it’s what sets me apart from the cold, consistent ground i’m standing on.

the best things about being alone are
not having to share the leftovers
sleeping on whichever side of the bed i want
riding on the rhythm of my thoughts, untouched
but then i think about you
and how the worst thing about being alone is
that you’re alone, too.
