how i will be a better partner


  • be honest about my feelings
  • do not apologize for being hurt or making him feed bad about a valid issue you have
  • communicate with the intent to solve the problem together instead of to make him feel as bad as i do 
  • understand and accept flaws
  • chose not to be petty 
  • do not demand to be first priority, i am not in a position to have that expectation 
  • make fair judgments
  • chose a loving response over a confrontational one 
  • forgive unintentional hurt feelings without announcing it 
  • accept that i desire an unreasonable amount of love and attention and appreciate how much i get already
  • do not resent that i am not his entire world 
  • do not be jealous where no reason exists 
  • stop doubting his love and intentions; he isn't like the others 
  • trust that he means what he says 
  • love him with all of my heart and do not forget to show it 
  • try my best to be a kind, loving, reassuring and stable person always 
  • be the partner that i want and lead by example  

tomorrow and forever

It's overwhelming how I love you
How I always crave your touch
I didn't know I had it in me
To want a person quite this much

I can't imagine another love
There is no one after you
It may be early but I am sure
I'll never do better than you

I want to wake up tangled in your arms 
See your smile every day
Sleep together in a bed we've made 
Until we're old and grey


This is going to work.

I know it will.

Please.

Please, PLEASE be as dedicated to making this work as I am.

I know you love me. I know you do. But not on the same level that I love you. You love me for selfish reasons, for the things I do for you or make you feel. I love you for reasons that would still exist no matter what our relationship is. My love wouldn't stop if you stopped loving me back. I know yours would.

I am terrified of you forgetting that you love me this summer.

I will be gone a lot. I don't know if you have thought about what that really means. I will be a name in your phone inbox a majority of the time. Is your love strong enough to put a hundred memories behind my name? To remember why you love me? Will you get lonely and start talking to Morgan more? Will she become who you text when you're bored? And then who you text when you wake up? Or go to bed? Will she take you from me? I am absolutely devastated just imagining it.

I don't know if you truly know your feelings. I know mine: I want to be with you with every beating of my heart. I want us to last. I wish I could look into your mind and see where you stand.

I am starting to freak out about us. I don't want to live without you. But I don't want to be unwanted and trapped again. I am putting my guard back up. I can't live so exposed.

lonely, jealous & insecure

i know you think you love me,
and on some level, i'm sure you do.
but it doesn't burn you up inside,
not like how i love you.

when i see how you don't need me,
while i've yet to catch my breath,
i can feel my heartbeat fading,
as it sinks lower in my chest.

and then i think about her.
and my vision clouds with doubt.
maybe one day you'll get lonely,
and i won't be around.

what if while i was missing you,
thinking you didn't have the time,
you were busy texting her,
and she was stealing what was mine?

i refuse to live in loneliness.
not again, not like before.
i'm tired of being jealous,
sick of feeling insecure.

because, whether you're gone a minute,
or an hour,
or a day,
i miss you every second,
and just wished you felt that way.

Not even sad

All that time
And I was blind
Gone without a trace
Another mistake

12 3 6

I'm back to midnight nightmares
And needles set at three
Waking up not knowing
What's happening to me

Each blink I see their faces
Hear their voices, see their lights
Coming to my rescue
In the middle of the night

I'm back to that uncertainty
That torturous unknowing
If today will be the day
That I'll finally be going

And so I'll lie there
Wide awake
My breathing ever slow
Waiting for the moment when
I fall asleep and then go low
