Time is the only currency we give without realizing how much more of it we have left.

“The sun is perfect and you woke this morning. You have enough language in your mouth to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand and someone wants to hold it. If we just start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything, for a moment, is right in the world.”

Living alone is hard. There’s no pain like loneliness. And you don’t know your threshold for it. And nobody does until they get hurt. If you can survive it, you know you’re at least that strong. If not you just die. The thing about it is, you have no idea what will kill you until you’re dead. And then you don’t know another thing. Ever. The last thing you’ll ever learn is what you’re strong enough to not survive.

Mike Tyson didn’t have a tiger, the tiger had a Mike Tyson. Out of the two of them, at the time, if you polled 100 people 90 would say Tyson was the most dangerous animal in that picture.

I pray my memory doesn’t allow you to miss me without missing the me in me and not the me you purported I gave you. I gave you more me than ever I ever cared how much I needed to keep me for myself. So to this day, I won’t say I miss you. I’ll just say somebody else got you. Like the bus. You weren’t meant for me to catch you. Missing a person should be like missing a bus. No sadness involved. I’ll find another to take me to where I need to be. I didn’t miss you. I just wasn’t supposed to take you.

I was your boyfriend yes but I hope you remember me more for who I was than what I was. We got too lost trying to find each other became two lost, trying to find ourselves. The good times were off the hook. You can get hung up on them. Even phones get hung up when they’re off the hook. Why not people? I should never have looked at ‘us’ like just some favor you granted me. If it’s ours, we both own it. Not just me. In the end, I expected too much from love. And it’s better to have a cold than to have expectations.

Id say I can’t believe it but that would be a lie — I can. Because I know better and I suspect we all do. I’ve known better since I was 15. It only took 15 years for me to learn the ways of this world.

Can’t do nothing but respect that.
