Just because someone is in your bed with you doesn’t mean that you’re not sleeping alone. 

The balance between being overwhelmed and having a lack luster life is much too difficult to get right. 

Would you let me take your breath away if it meant you could never breathe without me again?

When the stars grow weak and the sun shines through I know that it’s almost over. You will leave me to remember that I am not lonely, I am alone.

I don’t need to run to the finish line, I’m already there. Hand hovering over the ribbon, fingers grazing over its nothingness. There is nothing for me to feel, the race isn’t finished yet, I am.
