Those five little words
which mean nothing in
the whole hurricane cosmos of my life,
meant everything that day.
As if the universe
shown down upon us,
tears and bleeding hearts,
and promised that
there was so much more."

2. I thought I’d been in love twice in my life. One was pure adoration, one was all about lust. One was born from a persons mistake, one was sealed with a thrust.
3. I’ve been called it all, believe me. Slut, whore, loose, prostitute, cheap, easy. The list goes on. So I’ve learnt how to blink back tears, how to force my breath and voice to stay steady, how to hold my gaze, hold my stance, laugh along with the rest of them. But I’d be lying if I didn’t admit each word leaves me reeling.
