before I closed my eyes
my heart said, “I can’t wait
to love myself to another day.”
I woke up and felt my heart
“What happened?” I asked it gently.
“The same thing that always happens,” it replied.
“You teach me how to love myself by destroying myself
and now I’m breaking.”
Smile like you’re in love. Laugh like you’re in love. Cry like you’re in love. Whatever state you’re in, it’s best to act like you’re always in love. It looks good on you.
