Reality? I prefer daydreams.

I buy all your favorite foods so I will be ready when you come home
because once I did this and you said “This is how I know you love
me.”

I go on long walks alone and think about a poem my friend wrote
that goes ”This is how you die by distance.

I hum the sound of the dial tone under my breath.

I stare at my hands and wonder at their uses. I consider pawning
my thighs. I consider auctioning off my hip bones. I put my breasts in
a box on the top shelf of the closet. I do not need them now.

I think of all the things I have to tell you when I will see you.
Stories like:
I just found out pumpkins are technically fruits
and
Cary Grant’s first job was in a traveling circus
and
Most mammals are born able to walk and learn to run within minutes, so we are not crazy for moving so fast.

This morning I wrote your name in the steam on my mirror, even though I knew it would fade within minutes

In my best notebook I wrote “I miss you” ten thousand times.

I wrote “I think I am missing one of my ribs”

I wrote “I envy the way leaves know exactly when to fall from the branches and when to come back in the spring”

I wrote “Everyone else isn’t you. It turns out that’s a huge problem for me.”

Snap snap snap. And it’s Oluwadamilola not Dami. Maybe one day these people can say my full name. Just one day.

God isn’t tired of you. He doesn’t actually get tired. He isn’t waiting for you to impress Him. He actually wants you to come to Him, so HE can impress YOU with how much He loves and cares for you.

It’s nice to hear someone say they miss you.

I ruined myself.

I used to be such a happy person. I was always smiling, laughing, out with friends. Now, I’m just a mess. I let the thoughts overcome me. I’m not that happy person that I was anymore. People think I still am, when in reality I’m not. I just wish everything can go back to what it used to be. I just need a chance to fix all my mistakes, and get myself back to my feet. I’m tired of being broken. I really am.

I couldn’t have put it any better.
