drunk minds speak sober thoughts; or so they say. your drunk mind is running a thousand miles an hour- I can hardly keep up. bits and pieces scattered through the mess as you try to gather your thoughts. you say you are no good for me, but all I hear is that no one has ever been good for you. you say you will hurt me, and all I hear is that you are tired of being hurt. you are not the people that were no good. you are not the people that hurt you. you want to be this hardened, unfeeling person- void of anything that puts you in another vulnerable situation. but all I hear is that you want to be loved.
so I will.
I will love you for your brilliant mind and the good you put into the world. I will cherish all the moments where you continue to choose me, because it proves you trust me to be different. I will read your words and everything in between those black and white lines, knowing you use them to cope- as I do with mine. when you are lost, I will find you. in darkness I’ll shine as bright as I can. drunk minds speak sober thoughts; and you say
fuck you, cause I love you.
