If it is meant to be fate will bring us back together.
For a second I wondered if you were really that naive.
If you really believed fate worked like that.
As if it lived in the sky staring down at us.
As if fate was not already within us.
As if fate was not the choices we make.
As if it had five fingers and it spent its time placing us like pieces of chess.
Who taught you that?
Who convinced you you'd been given a heart and a mind but it wasn't yours to use?
That your actions did not define what would become of you?
I want to scream.
It's us you fool.
We're the only ones that can bring us back together.
But instead I sat there quietly.
Smiling softly through quivering lips thinking.
Isn't it such a tragic thing?
When you can see it so cleary but the other person doesn't.
What i miss most is how you loved me. But what i didn't know was how you loved me had so much to do with the person i was. It was a reflection of everything i gave to you. Coming back to me. How did i not see that. How. Did i sit here soaking in the idea that no one else would love me that way. When it was i that taught you. When it was i that showed u how to fill. The way i needed to be filled. How cruel was i to myself. Giving you credit for my warmth simply because you had felt it. Thinking it was you who gave me strength. Wit. Beauty. Simply because you recognized it. As if it was already not these things before i met you. As if it did not remain all these once you left 🖤 - rupi kaur #rupikaur#poetry#milkandhoney#heartache#love#healing#overcoming#relaxed#photography#art#wine#candles#bubblebath
I feel this in my blood and bones. I know it in my heart and soul.
I was wine deep in Rome this summer when I pre-ordered #thesunandherflowers . I needed it to be in my mailbox as soon as it was available. #milkandhoney has been my journal, my therapy, my bible, my inspiration over the last couple of years.
#RupiKaur is a brilliant and beautiful poet. I'm grateful for women who share their stories.

i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that
