I was unpacking when I heard you walk in. I had on light pink lipstick that I found at the bottom of a box. You put a few things on the counter and handed me my car keys. I kissed you and asked if you could help me move the bed. You said you needed to talk. I keep replaying this over and over in my mind. I don’t think I’ll be able to unpack the rest of our boxes.

It’s been a month since you left.
Mark says you’re not coming back.
I can’t sleep.
Are you awake?

I finally went to the doctor like you had begged me to.
You were right and yeah, I’ll be fine.

I sold my engagement ring at a pawn shop today. I bought expensive lipstick and flowers. I also bought a lot of beer and a carton of cigarettes. I’ve lost a lot weight since you last saw me. My friends from high school that I haven’t seen in years hardly recognize me. It’s weird being back in this town without you. I spend most of my afternoons at the beach. I saw a sea turtle today while I was swimming. I miss eating breakfast food at midnight with you.

I stumbled across the video of you in the car singing Taylor Swift. I deleted it before it played all the way through but I have to admit it made me laugh. I can’t remember how your voice sounds saying my name. I broke down and called you. Thank you for not answering.

I dropped my cigarette in my lap when you drove past me today.

I went on a date.
He thinks Bud Light is “quality beer”.
It just isn’t going to work out.

It doesn’t hurt anymore to say your name.

Hope you’re doing well.

Thank you for setting me free.
These short letters are straight from my notebook, unedited and carelessly written in extremely unattractive cursive. -d.a.h
my heart just broke
This is just perfect.
it probably seems like i cry over stupid shit but tbh i usually end up crying because i’ve stored up all of my upset feelings from multiple things rather than express them and then the littlest thing sets me off like spilling my drink may not be that big of a deal but when i’ve stored up that many negative emotions it feels like i busted a hole in the hoover dam
