i know what you're thinking



I know what you're thinking
beautiful thing
as you lie awake in the dark with your shining eyes
rivers of gold stardust tears running down your cheeks
dripping onto the floor and making it glow
like your heart did
before the world broke your trust

I know what you're thinking
glorious thing
as you wonder what the point is
why we wake each day
and go to work
or go to school
or go to parties
or watch videos on the internet
a n y t h i n g
to numb the pain
to take away the feeling
the sharp edges
of the broken things

but you,
beautiful, glorious thing
you are better off getting hurt
you are better off crying
you are better off when the broken things make you bleed
because it means you can feel
it means you haven't lost that wondrous gift you were born with

it means you haven't lost your soul

I know what you're thinking
beautiful thing
as you lie awake in the dark with your shining eyes
I know that you want to give up

d o n ' t.

the world needs you
because you are
our only

  1. "you are better off getting hurt.. because it means you can feel." I adore this line it reminds me that I need to feel the things in my heart in order to be present and alive. One of my worst fears and feelings is being numb to everything. I adore your writing. HOW DO YOU MAKE THE PAIN SO OKAY TO FEEL? <3

    My friend recently passed away and it was very unexpected. So hearing this – that my pain is okay – makes me feel better. Thank you, Abbiee.
