You know you miss someone when you literally feel physical pain in your chest because you can’t be with them. It’s so fucking painful.

Some men don’t know what it means to stay.
They’ve watched their mothers leave every morning,
and their fathers leave every night.
We think, maybe that’s where they learned their disappearing act.
But I know women who’ve lived their entire lives in empty homes,
and the absence has taught them something else.

I don’t give a shit what the world thinks. I was born a bitch, I was born a painter, I was born fucked. But I was happy in my way. You did not understand what I am. I am love. I am pleasure, I am essence, I am an idiot, I am an alcoholic, I am tenacious. I am; simply I am…You are a shit.
