Even the stars burn, darling. Greet darkness like a friend and let the stars stack inside you until your bones bleed into the milky way.
It’s Okay To Love

Hey now, it’s okay to cry. You’re allowed to rip the paper wrappers from the walls just to feel the hearts beating beneath. You’re allowed to slam the door against the wall so hard the brass hinges begin to spin like the sun.

Hey now, it’s okay to scream. You’re allowed to clutch your chest, you don’t have to muddle those sobs in the pillow. Let the voice out. Let them all out. Even your tears are a song, and hell, life is heartbreaking. Let the sigh out and the blackbird free.

Hey now, it’s okay to run. You’re allowed to be terrified, you’re allowed to turn the fan all the way up over the bathroom sink just so you can let the breaths come easy. The storms behind your eyes are the same storms that haunt the ocean. They are pushing you towards a shoreline.

Hey now, it’s okay to laugh. You’re allowed to smile even though you’re so broken shattered glass looks whole. I know you can still feel all the cracks. I know you still run your fingers over the sore spots, the empty crevices, but remember that prisms are only beautiful because they have seven different ways of reflecting light, and without pain you’d have only one.

Hey now, it’s okay to reach out. You’re allowed to call up your best friend in the middle of the night weeping. Birds travel in flocks, and when winter settles in they sweep through the trees together. So don’t be scared of the dependency.

They need you too.
