“Black women wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and see Black women. White women wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and see women. White men wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and see human beings.”—Michelle Haimoff, on privilege (via jatigi)
If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away. If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay. Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior. Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache. Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that’s not meant to be. Slower is better….
Remember that the women of the earth once held you in their arms;
Remember the morning shining on the tips of our noses.
Remember laughing, remember longing
Remember the feeling of ripping and tearing
Remember the river, the green grass
Remember I loved you, remember the
Soft smell of the spring and
The feeling that everything was going to be okay.
Remember the sounds of words crickling and crackling from our lips,
Remember smokey smells, remember the
Remember your mother, your father;
Remember blood running hot.
Snow falls. Drunken wandering
High on youthfulness and something else
The sound of your own voice.
Remember, I held you.
And I’ll see your eyes twinkling
From the other side of the universe
You never gave a fuck about me or yourself but you tried. You were my love. I would have done anything for you and I did. You broke my heart a million times over. I felt so powerless. I lived and breathed you. You were everything to me. You fucked with me. You fucked with yourself. You took me for granted and you didn’t fucking care. You were always staring into some abyss. I could never get you to look away. I could never heal you.
And if you would have fucking succeeded, I would be gone.
