too many people i have broken bones for and all they’ve done is settle down into glimmering new skeletons

i tried to tell you that no amount of darkness can smother the stars that make your eyes glow and your purpose renewed but you didn’t believe it until the girl came along who set your heart on fire and left the crumbled pieces in the palm of your hand

you told me that you’d never felt like you were good at anything until she told you that you were the only one who had ever made her happy and you’d never felt as alive as when she held your hand and kissed you on a cold November night

i reminded you to look down at your chest and think about how your heart beats constantly just for you and no one else could be that committed to keeping you alive
