I found myself staring at my phone. Waiting for you to text me and take back those hurtful words you said to me last night. You broke my heart but what can I do about it? I can’t make you fall in love with me. We can’t go on forever with only physical attraction. I need you to find out what you really want. I want to hear the words “I want you back and I love you”....
No, I'm not flirting. I'm being nice. Get it...
Reasons why i'm single
ONE: i annoy people
TWO: i'm never anyones first choice
THREE: i fuck shit up
FOUR: i'm just bad with relationships
FIVE: i'm not liked
SIX: I am an ugly ass mother fucker
SEVEN: I always fall for the wrong person
Convo between my 7year-old students today
(Names have been altered slightly, just in case.)
Josie: I have a new crusshhhhh
Matt: Me too! On a boy!
Pearl: You're a boy with a crush on a boy?
Matt: Yeah he's really cute.
(pause for a bit)
Matt: Boys can like boys. I just an't marry him because boys can't marry boys.
Me: Yeah they can. You can marry whoever you want.
Josie: YEAH my tia has a wife so now I have a titi and a auntie.
Matt: Okay. Then maybe I'll marry him.
Dave: (from across the room) No you can't you're seven.
(Age was apparently the only foreseeable problem anyone of my elementary schoolers could see with gay marriage. I almost cried out of happiness. Later, when I was asked if boys could kiss anyone they wanted, I replied "only if they want to kiss you back." And Josie responded "Yeah! Your body your life.")
My students are the shit.
