Unbalanced equations lead to

frustrations, like remember the time

you asked for my forgiveness. I gave

it with some reservations. You had the

regret and tears to boot, yet moved past

it faster than fast food’s serving practices.

I read in a magazine that what I’m doing

is unhealthy. Can’t help it, I’ve got your

rock hard heart attached to my body as I

try to walk barefoot in a field of broken

glass. I’ll try harder to move past all of

this, praying I won’t seek out revenge

because the darkest part of me wants

you to feel exactly how I did. You’re

smiling right this second. How

are you this content?

  3. What an amazing piece.

    I’m loving your blog (followed!) but I would also like to invite you to submit a short piece to my own. I think your perspective and style of writing would be a perfect piece for my project.

    It’d also be a great way to get your blog/writing out there.

    Please feel free to email me (jennifer@youngandtwenty) with more questions, or take a look at the ‘BEING Young & Twenty’ page on my blog.

    I hope I’ll hear from you 🙂
