they’ll tell you you’ll get over it

you won’t believe them

the pain will seem too big

too real

the memories too clear

but I  promise



and you’ll be 

on the other side

of that great and terrible

lake of tears

and maybe you’ll look back

every now and then

but that’s okay—

it’s not because you miss it

or you want it back even. 

it’s just that

with that behind you

the forward looks

a whole lot brighter

INFP who names inanimate objects, loves to laugh, and is a proud old soul. You can often find her planning out her next crazy project, hugging books, or telling stories about her day that *may* be a little exaggerated.
