If you stay

simple-drawings-tumblr-7.png

if you stay I promise I will learn to love without losing myself in the process

I promise I can be my own person

I swear I can be her again, fifteen, with a strong belief in people and kindness

I swear I can see life as something beautiful

I will put away the drugs, I’ll put away the self deprecating girl who thinks bitterness is strength

I will put away the facade that this sarcasm is a weapon

I can write poems about bedroom eyes and sunsets

I will write poems in the horizon

I will write stanzas in the stars

All I ask is that you stick around, even if it is just for the night.
