/you know/ 
/sometimes in the middle of the night/i wake up with tears in my eyes/with the thought of you pushing me away/because i want to hold you close/and i want to kiss you goodnight/and wipe the stray tears from your soft eyelashes/whispering soft nothings into your ears until your muscles relax/and i can feel the way your sobs turn into soft hiccups/

/and/i wish/you believed the things i told you/because you are beautiful/drenched in the rays of first light/wearing the midnight cape of twinkling stars and moon blessings/sitting by the windowsill and looking at monochrome worlds/just being/you/

/i hate that you think you are alone/i hate that i cannot tell you enough how much you mean to me/i hate how i take you for granted/i hate how i forget to tell you i love you/because if you are in the passenger seat in the car of your life, i'm in the backseat/crashing along with you/

//when i dream of moonlight ripples/and falling stars/and seraphic beings/and drifting dandelions/i remember you/and i feel tears gently soothe my eyelids shut/trickling with the hope of forever/because/you remind me to dream again/

//and i could never forget you/i didn't just love you for that kind smile/and all the things you wanted others to think of you as/i love you for all the things you think you're not/and all the things you are/i love you for all the reasons that keep you up at night/i love you for the reasons you hate yourself/i love you/through and through/ 

///and i forget to tell you sometimes/but/

///i love you/
For that little child crying in all of us. Don't forget to show yourself some love, because you are loved

And this piece was inspired by sunny.v's piece, sometimes i forget to: (if you're reading this, sunny girl, this one's for you!)

    When I read this the first time, I thought it was about a parent and their child as the kid grew up and the two of them grew distant. Then I read your foot note. Then I might've cried a little. In a good way, of course. Beautiful piece and thank you for the message, I needed to hear it today.

    I'M honored to have YOU follow ME! You spin a web of imagery in your pieces so lifelike it's as if I can see the words take physical form, vivid and distinct. You're a lowercase prose icon, and I'm proud to call you my fellow writer and my friend. Your comment made my day. :)

    Awww, this piece is full of such sad devotion. I love the way you write though. My favorite stanza is the one that starts with “when I dream of moonlight ripples”.
    Also,
    replying: Thank you so much for all your encouragement and kind words. I look forward to seeing you grow as a writer on this site; your work is already so wonderful!

    I wanted to quote my favorite lines, but this whole piece is so achingly lovely that it's nearly impossible. Okay, I lied, because "i love you for the reasons you hate yourself" hit me like a sucker punch because I've thought that same thing so many times... gosh this is beautiful.

    I started tearing up at this... and I'm not entirely sure why. Sometimes you come across something that you feel you were meant to read. Agreeing with Cosmogyral, it's a piece of emotional excellence. :)

    oh man... this is beautiful. I love this so so so much <333 "and i can feel the way your sobs turn into soft hiccups" i love this imagery! we've all been here, and you've taken such a real moment and turned it into poetry in and of itself. "i remember you/and i feel tears gently soothe my eyelids shut/trickling with the hope of forever/because/you remind me to dream again" this is so beautiful! gah the emotion in this piece is gonna make me fall apart! I love the slightly staggered flow in this line. Wow, this really is stunning. the little child inside me wants to be held and told its all okay--and this piece did exactly that. wow i love this <333 really beautiful. i love reading your work!
