michelle.

these are the things that i don't tell many
(if any)
andiwontandiwontandiwont
because fuck,
it's fucked 
up. 

but-

darling, why do you allow such things
to come into your life?
(and you say "oh but she never knew any better")
oh, all the repercussions of a life not lived
or role models for parents
i'm so tired of this.

i wish i could hold your hand and guide you through this simple life that i live
and make you see that there are good people
here

that men are not monsters
all the time
that women are not out to get you
or hurt you
or steal from you

that sometimes, there are genuine moments

that sometimes, it is ok to laugh and mean it

that sometimes, it is good to smile and feel it

oh, mama
i'm so sorry for everything you've never felt.
