a letter to a friend.


darling,  please

don't destroy yourself.

i know that you think that this is all there is 

but please, just know 

that there is so much more.


your heart is broken,

your thoughts are muddled

and lonliness aches your bones,

but please, just know

that there is so much more.


things to smell, and to touch

love to feel.

and when its all too much,

and you want to give up,

remember that even on

the darkest of nights,

the moon still shines.
