If I had to fall, it won’t be in your line

I got lots of jealous lovers that all wish they had me back

Got a pistol for a mouth, my old mama gave me that

Making my own road out of gravel and some wine

And if I have to fall then it won’t be in your line


I’m fine 

Everything was okay today, but I am not feeling okay. I think that when you lose something or someone you care about, you die a little bit inside. I think that it takes a long time to feel okay again.

So you’re having a baby

Every once in a while you will text me out of the blue. I’m assuming it’s when you need an ego stroke or you’re feeling particularly insecure about something. 

You say you want to be friends but we have to keep it a secret because your wife would be upset. I don’t respond. I never do. It doesn’t stop you from texting. I doubt you’ll ever give up. It’s not your style. But it’s more about you than me. 

I saw one of our mutual friends and they told me the good news that your wife is pregnant and you’re having a baby. Good for you. 

I bet she doesn’t know you won’t stop texting me. Just like she doesn’t know that I never respond. Even though I want to. I don’t. I miss you. I hate that you’re married and having a baby. But what I hate the most is that I was right about you. 

You’ll always be mine 

My phone alerted me that I received a text message… and then another … and another. I looked down and it was him. 

The text said, “I dreamt of you last night. We were together. We were happy. I miss you. You’all always be mine. I don’t care what you say.” 

We broke up 6 years ago. He’s married to someone else. 

I didn’t respond but I wanted to. 

Beautiful people don’t just happen

I can see beauty in the most unlikely places. Some of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met have endured the most heartache and suffering. The empathy that they have is inspiring. 

If you’re struggling or suffering, don’t give up! Find your way out of despair. The world needs more beautiful people.
