"Do not fall in love.
It is not flowers and sunshine,
It is not sipping cool lemonade at eleven in the morning listening to the birds and reading the news paper.
It is not smiling and knowing that everything is going to be ok.
It is fire without the flames,
It is excruciating pain in all the places of your body you didn’t know could ache.
it is not knowing what a smart choice is anymore
It is two in the morning struggling to catch oxygen while you look for your sanity on the floor in his old sweater,
Trying to use it as a cast around your body.
It will not fix your broken bones it will not shield you from this cruel world,
It will only bring back the smell of the air,
The day that you met him.
How the room was full but all you saw was him.
It is tears.
So many tears.
You will become so comfortable with lying because it is so much easier to tell anyone who asks “no I don’t love him anymore” then trying to explain that you have fallen in love with the beauty mark between his thumb and his index finger, it is so much less hurt to imagine all the reasons for why you still do love him,
When you know he is no good for you."
