(I almost missed writing. I forgot to post to this site because of Game of Thrones. Television, the ultimate distraction. Day 103…)
I want to be you whenever I see you smiling, because it’s easily one of the hardest things to do…
It takes more muscles to frown than to smile.
It depends on which muscles we’re counting
The weight in the chest makes lifting burdens with cheeks much harder than letting them hang.
If you are able to smile
With all that wants to hold you down
Then you are stronger than you believe.

(One hundred days. I still can’t believe my own commitment to this. Anyway, I pulled from thoughts I no longer think. Time, the ultimate eraser of feeling…)
See, the way I feel about you, it’s like nothing left without you. But I doubt you think it’s nothing more than game…
When I didn’t say it as often
When you stood in the mirror wondering if your figure still erected statues in your honor,
When crying was the language you thought I understood
Text messages I can erase with a swipe of my thumb.
I promise I did.
You had all of me
Despite me not sharing every thought
Every random pleasure that caused my daybreak of a smile
Though no one write understands sunrise
They know it gives them hope
I’m sorry I didn’t show my hope on my face.
There was no part of me that was attached to another
The entirety of my being scared me
I apologize for placing my fear where love should go.
But my heart was yours.
It means nothing now
Closure happened long before I gathered the courage to write this.
I don’t even know if you still wondered about me.
Yes I did
Love you too.
