it sounds egotistical, but sometimes, when im at a bar trying to talk to the same girl a “bro” is trying to “hit up”, i just stand down and think,
"keep talking. its okay. i’m as adorable as you are obnoxious."
I feel as though I’ve given vulnerable parts of me to the wrong people, and closed myself off entirely to the right people. How unfortunate of me.
You became a routine.
I was not afraid because I braced myself.
I was prepared- armed, equipped with a shield
to protect myself from your piercing love.
But you became a routine.
I got used to you. I began loving the idea of you.
But still, I guarded. I held my position until you gave up.
And now that you’ve left,
I long for the very same routine.
It doesn’t matter what kind of stand a person takes in regards to their feelings. Once someone becomes a routine, and that flow is suddenly severed, you become an emotional wreck.
