Anonymous asked: Every time you say sorry you give away a little bit more of yourself... If you find yourself apologizing too much to one person, maybe that person is the problem and it is not you. Does that make sense?
Sure it makes sense; it’s a reasonable statement but that’s my point… to not play the blame game, to be vulnerable and to take responsibility for my own actions. I feel it’s the least I can do… besides whats wrong with giving “away a little bit of yourself” and “apologizing too much” if each time it’s genuine?
Anonymous asked: what r u sorry about?
I’m sorry that I’m afraid of confrontation…
and that I can be a coward at times…
I’m sorry for the things I should’ve said but didn’t…
I wonder what people think when they look at me; do they think I’m sad or wonder who I really am? (Because I guarantee they don’t know.)
I wonder what people think when they read the words I write; do they wish to break down my metaphors or creep inside my mind?
Do they want to figure out the meaning behind the roses or why I’m really terrified of thunderstorms? (Because I promise, I’m not a jigsaw puzzle.) — a.d.r.

When some people talk about money
They speak as if it were a mysterious lover
Who went out to buy milk and never
Came back, and it makes me nostalgic
For the years I lived on coffee and bread,
Hungry all the time, walking to work on payday
Like a woman journeying for water
From a village without a well, then living
One or two nights like everyone else
On roast chicken and red wine.
