While you were away,
I learned to keep myself company
for longer than anyone should.
While you were away,
I picked lilacs to lure you in,
but it didn't do any good.

I won't be unreasonable.
I won't say I blame you
for everything wrong with me.
But it does seems as though
you're at the heart of all my stress.

There's no telling when I'll see you again.
But thanks for being present when you could.
Thanks for assembling me, I guess.


  1. ohmygoodness i love this. you're so so amazing with words. oh and i love your new sidebar picture. xx

    1. thank you! so, so much. that made my day. and I was secretly hoping someone would mention the new pictue :) haha

  2. "Thanks for assembling me, I guess."

    Wow, that's really powerful! I love this. And I also loved your rad comment on my blog, so thanks for that :D And I second the awesomeness of the sidebar. It's adorable!

  3. Loooooove that photo booth picture on your side bar!

  4. it's hard to be the one left. it's hard to be the one to do the leaving and cut the ties (sometimes it doesn't look that hard). i hope writing helps the process and helps you find answers.


I love reading what you have to say about what I had to say. Feel free to leave those thoughts here.
