Kaeleigh Eleanor. Not sure what to type here so I'm going to stop now
week one: rinse your body of his touch. drown yourself in hot water from the shower, choke on the steam that rises from your red, soaking flesh. scrub yourself raw, until you have shed every last skin cell that could have been touched by his fingertips.
week two: take his jacket and drench it in gasoline. light fire to it in the middle of the night, let the smoke swirl in your lungs. inhale, exhale, the smell of him is leaving. leave the burnt remains on his doorstep.
week three: get drunk. turn off your phone, so you won’t be able to call him. leave it the other room. watch sit-coms and soap operas until 4 in the morning. laugh and cry until you throw up. it won’t be because of him.
week four: hold the necklace he bought you close to your chest. remember. you can remember the good so long as you do not forget the bad. break the clasp with a hammer and place it back in its velvet box.
week five: buy yourself a new dress. put it on and call the boy that’s been chasing you since grade school. ask him if he wants to go out. he’ll say yes. take him to dinner and hold his hand, but do not kiss. adjust. adjust slowly, carefully.
week six: call him. when he picks up, ask him how he’s doing. when he says he’s doing fine, tell him you’re glad. when he asks why, tell him you were just checking and hang up without a goodbye. he will call back that night, and the next, and the next. but he already lost you, and you are okay.

OMG so I just figured out the word “hurt”
it’s past, present and future
you will be hurt
you are hurt
you were hurt
BECAUSE IF SOMETHING TRULY HURT, IT NEVER REALLY STOPS
you poetic little shit
it’s because… it’s an adjective… …
you will be stupid
you are stupid
you were stupid
BECAUSE IF SOMEONE IS TRULY STUPID, THEY NEVER REALLY STOP
