To Those from My Past

August 30, 2020



Tell me, what does it feel like
To sit atop the countless hearts laid at your feet?
Insecurities fill your eyes
Even as we marvel at their depth and shine.

Hope after dream after plea
Passed from one pair of trembling hands to another.
We never meant to do this;
To have you bear the weight of unfailing affection.
Those of us who truly loved you
Would never ask of you even half of what you demand of yourself.

Tell me, do you feel powerful
To know that you can alter a piece of our lives?
Or are you too afraid
Of littering your journey with shattered hearts?
We act like you're our lifeline,
But you can't save everyone, and we often wound our hearts alone.
Do not be ashamed.
We are strong enough to move on, even when eternity screams.
This isn't actually directed to just one person. A lot of the guys I've liked (especially when I was younger), have turned out to be girl magnets (yes I'm that basic), which is weird, because a lot of them are so different from each other. So yeah, this is to all of them. (No bitterness to any of them (except a little for that one jerk).
 Side note: It was so tempting to title this To All the Boys I've Loved Before, despite the fact that I don't even love that movie and I've never read the book (don't come at me lol).

    Replying: haha yeah "hot" here is probably about 98-100, for a few weeks at a time, which isn't normal here. How hot has it been where you are?

    Replying: haha, yes, I live in Minnesota. It does get pretty cold—but it has been a really hot summer so far. I'm very fond of Minnesota ;)

    Replying: oh, sweet! I've hardly met anyone who's heard Tuck! Deh and wicked are some of my all-time favs, and I also really love Anastasia. I completely understand staying away from the dirty ones. Hadestown is actually totally clean (maybe a "damn" or "bastard" somewhere, but I don't think anything worse) and it's one of the best musicals I've ever heard.
    Keep up the lovely writing!

    Well TBH, I too didn't love the movie much........cheesy teenage romances is definitely not my cup of tea.
