I write when I'm sad. That's basically everything about me.

11/29/16

by HeroTheTurtle

It is 10:23 p.m.

The love of my life and best friend of the last four years is telling me to be happy.

She doesn't like the scars. I joke that it makes my arms look like tigers.

She doesn't laugh.

She tries to. She tries to smile and kiss my wrists but I can feel the tears stretch down like the blood my veins once carried.

I can't do this anymore. I can't do this to her.

I tell her that I need to go.

But I don't move.

She can't see me cry. She won't see my cry.

I turn my head. Apologize for what feels like the fortieth time tonight and tell her that I never liked forcing myself to breathe.

She nods.

In this room, I am comfortable. In her arms, in her silence, and in her undeserved love I am comfortable.

I love her.

But she deserves better.

Sometimes love and compatibility are not the same thing .

This was tender but not cloyingly so. This was poignantly haunting. I loved it. Great jo!!!!!
