What can I say? Nothing could ever really explain this. And I don't know if I'm ready to try. At least not here. I'm just trying to make it to my next therapy appointment. 3 more days to go.

Not About a Boy

July 12, 2021

FREE WRITING

I'm eating ice cream and crying, but it's not about a boy.

I'm filling my notes app with heartbreak, but it's not about a boy.

I'm listening to sad music at midnight, but it's not about a boy.

I'm thinking about the future and wondering how I'll ever let go, but it's not about a boy.

I'm hoping I'll be able to escape this toxic cycle, but it's not about a boy.

I'm wondering why I'm never right enough to be loved all the way, but it's not about a boy.

I'm blocking out the sounds of someone hurting, but it's not about a boy.

I'm trying not to hate the person who hurt me, but it's not about a boy.

It's about you.
"yeah you always say I'm never satisfied
but I don't think that's true
you say I'm never satisfied
but that's not me it's you

cuz all I ever wanted was to be enough
but I don't think anything
could ever be enough
for you
enough for you
no nothing's enough for you"
