Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.
I shall go on shining as a brilliantly meaningless figure in a meaningless world.
I have decided that if I don’t get into vet school right away it won’t be the worst thing in the world for me. I need some time to catch up with myself. I’ve been on the fast lane so long and I’ve lost a lot because of it. If I have a year to place my heart back in the same time zone with my brain then I think I’ll be content with my life.
One of the vet interns here said that this last year she spent outside of school before vet school has been the best year she has had in forever and that she really needed it.
We work ourselves out of happiness to find happiness and that doesn’t make any sense.
If I am accepted I’ll happily attend vet school. I’ll just figure out how to let my heart catch up over the summer. I’ll make it through this life. I have to stop battling myself.
I’m excited and afraid to continue to grow in age, education, career, love, etc. but I will make it and it will be beautiful
I just want to spend the whole day in the library binge watching Netflix and YouTube because I have been so deprived for so long… Is that wrong of me!???
Tonight I listened to a voicemail you left me three months ago.
In it, you told me to go fuck myself.
I still remember that night.
I still remember those words rolling off your tongue so gracefully.
I remember wondering how someone so beautiful could be so cruel.
Two months ago I called you at three A.M.
I expected you to ignore it, or to send me to voicemail;
those were two of the things you were best at.
You answered and I felt my heart begin to race;
you probably thought it was because I missed you,
but truthfully it was because I didn’t expect you to answer,
and because I really had to pee.
I asked you how you were and you sat there quietly and confused.
It was like you forgot that I existed and that I was once a part of your life.
You told me “fine” and I smiled.
That was the last conversation we had.
I made sure to let go of you, and every negative word that was said, in a peaceful way.
Fast forward two months, and I still wonder how you are.
I still wonder how your dog is and if you’ve seen any good movies lately.
If you ever heard me say this, you’d probably blush like you used to whenever I said something sweet.
You’d probably think I think these things because I still love you, that I still want you.
But that is not the case.
You see, six months ago I was jumping through hoops to please you.
To make sure that you were happy before myself.
To make sure that I was the one causing your happiness.
But it is not six months ago.
It is now.
And now I simply remember you as a person I gave my soul to.
A person I told secrets to at 4am and fucked to feel a sense of closeness.
A person I loved, yes.
But it is not six months ago.
It is now, and now I miss you.
I miss the way you called randomly just to ask how my day was.
I miss the way you seemed to care, even if you didn’t.
I miss the friendship and the secrets and the stories.
And maybe one day things will be different.
Maybe you’ll call me on a Tuesday afternoon and ask how my day was.
These are the things I think about before my eyes slowly close and I am finally rewarded with sleep.
But for right now?
Go fuck yourself.
