Love Does These Things
Her eyes were bloodshot and her knees were weak, so there she remained, stumbling down her driveway in a puddle of tears and treacherous heartbreak, chasing after a boy who took her for granted. This defeated girl learned what love was through all the hate endured in a relationship with a boy who thought she was anything but remarkable. She was told love was everywhere in the air she breathed, and below her in the water she bathed in, then cut off from oxygen, and burned from the steaming hot water. Love does these things though, devastates tranquil girls and turns them into violent storms, unwilling to be blown away after they’ve felt the hatred that caressed their hips on the lonely nights they longed for the wind to grab their face and tell them their worth in this hell we call “Earth”.
