Sweet Nothings

Name is Alison. Vegetarian, heathen, witch. I only like good music, writing for my own pleasure, and reading anything thought-provoking. I enjoy good grammar and spelling. I keep only good company. That last part was a lie.

Not being creepy at all.

I came across a poem that wrote months back in bed with someone that I was so deeply enamored by. The poem was about how I think my heart was about the be shattered. The very next day, it WAS shattered. My intuition was spot on. As I read over the poem, I felt no sadness. I only felt relief that this isn’t my life anymore, happiness at where my life is at now, and hope for my still bright future. I’m glad my heartbreak is relatively through, but I am also glad I experienced it because it shaped who I am and made stronger. As cliche as that sounds, it is 100% the truth.

I almost wanna post the poem as a final form of closure. But I think I’ll keep it to myself. Or burn it. Whichever 😉

i don’t understand how i could’ve been fooled so beautifully by you.

you are absolutely disgusting inside and out, but you disguise it so elegantly with your words and sensitivity. it is all an act, and i can’t even blame you because i was always the fool. i must have it tattooed in a gorgeous script on my forehead.


Loss is something everyone copes with differently. I feel like people hold a magnifying glass to others at funerals, watching their every move and expression. If a person is hunching his or her shoulders, they must be grieving (and correctly they would add). That man is standing tall and keeping his composure, he must be fine.

For such a diverse country, you would think people would realize that there is no formula for grief. Just because a particular person does not shed a tear, does not mean this same person is tormented inside. The same goes for that man huddled in the corner, weeping like a young child-he may be crying out of guilt, not grief.

We all define loss differently. Loss to some might mean a barrier that is impossible to get over. Others just define it as a thorn on a rose bush we casually brush up against, did it hurt? Yes, it bled even. It might leave a scar even after it is healed, but it is in the past and will not define my future.

Dealing with a loss is not a math problem, it is not “true.” There is no a=1, b=2, so so together they must equal 3.

"March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life’s path." Kahlil Gibran

RIP Bradford Edwin Middleton. More people love you than I think you ever realized.
