The first time someone breaks your heart, you will feel like it’s the end. Your hands may bruise from holding on to something that just wants to be let go, so do your skin a favor and release. One day, you will look back on the first time you felt empty and you won’t be able to understand how you were ever able to fall so low, so fast.

The second time someone tries to break your heart, you will be more prepared. It’s going to hurt, but you’ll remember that you survived, and that thought alone will help with some of the pain of trusting someone with your heart again.

The third time, when someone tries to break your heart, they won’t even be able to reach for it. You’ve been ready for this. Your heart has been blocked off by caution tape, and it has never again’s tied around it twice, so not even you can get to it.

And when you fall in love, for real this time, your heart will have already broken out of its own safety net. Before your mind can tell your heart that it’s okay to be vulnerable again, your heart will have already softened itself. Your heart knows all the tricks now. It will know the sincerity in someone’s voice and this time, it will not be fooled by the word love. So trust what your heart is telling you when it’s telling you that it’s going to be okay. Listen to the experience of its words and let it surrender. It needs your hands to set it free. Your heart has been damaged before, but hell, it will never let itself fall in the palms of someone who’s only intention is to be able to say that it was able to break the unbreakable.
"Your heart has learned all of the lessons," - Colleen Brown (via mostlyfiction)

"A Mindful Melancholy"

the-mind-of-rueberry:

I sit silently upon my bed
of indecision.
My eloquent not knowing
that holds me near.
How do I dream of escape.
A pleasant fantasy to keep me sane;
a respite - of sweet denial.
Silently I sit, within my cage.
Bittersweet, this need I stay.
Yet, for now, have it not
would I - another way.

Compared to You

dontcryitsonlymike:

Shooting stars rainbows and starlit nights
the beauty of nature I’ve oft confessed
yet when compared to you
by far the unrivaled, fairest
and loveliest view
each of these must ever be second best

it’d be good to see you today

brightlightsloudnoises:

the rain has fallen recently 
and for a little while
the earth
feels
fresh

and green

and I’m thinking about you

thinking that we should walk somewhere
in
this green 

until we’re tired
and then lay in bed
with the windows open

existing and healing 

like the earth 
when it’s having a
good day

The Uses of Sorrow

(In my sleep I dreamed this poem)

Someone I loved once gave me
a box full of darkness.

It took me years to understand
that this, too, was a gift.

Mary Oliver, from Thirst (2006)
