You must learn her.
You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.
You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.
And, this is how you keep her."

I can’t fucking stop thinking about you.
in the library
flooding my brain with every ounce of schoolwork that I can just to push you out of the way
i soon find my emotions dripping on to my notebooks
my mind cannot escape your grasp
The morning sun was so calm
so white and gentle
Slipping through the cracks
How I wish I were the same
Broken and consumed with the thoughts
thoughts of lost love
Your name on my phone at 230am
the feelings boil to the surface
I gave you my everything
it still was not enough
