A Touch of Rain

Hidden

You say you don't like to tell me you love me too often, so that when you do, it means 'more'. Those hidden words would mean a lot to me, if I were to hear them a little more often. You say I'm perfect the way I am but I feel as though you keep… Continue reading Hidden

Unresolved

Please don't ask me to talk about my eating disorder if you're going to end the conversation as soon as I tell you what's going on.

Here’s To Us

Here's to the friends who have never left your side. To those who will always answer the phone. The friends who are always there when you need them the most. Here's to the friends who are separated yet remain inseparable. To those who meet up and nothing has changed. The friends who rearrange their days for the… Continue reading Here’s To Us
