milk and honey

“i am hopelessly a lover and a dreamer,
and that will be the death of me.”
— Rupi Kaur

“don’t mistake
salt for sugar
if he wants to
be with you
he will
it’s that simple”

“you mustn’t have to
make them want you
they must want you themselves”

“the thing
worth holding on to
would not have let go”

“you treat them like they
have a heart like yours
but not everyone can be as
soft and as tender

you don’t see the
person they are
you see the person
they have the potential to be

you give and give till
they pull everything out of you
and leave you empty”

“love is not cruel
we are cruel
love is not a game
we have made a game
out of love”

“do not beg for what does not want to stay.”

“do not bother holding on to
that thing that does not want you”
— you cannot make it stay

“the next time he
points out the
hair on your legs is
growing back remind
that boy your body
is not his home
he is a guest
warn him to
never outstep
his welcome

“other women’s bodies
are not our battlegrounds”


“how you love yourself is
how you teach others
to love you”

are your own
soul mate”

“you have to stop
searching for why at some point
you have to leave it alone”
