“Every relationship has at least one really good day. What I mean is, no matter how sour things go, there’s always that day. That day is always in your possession. That’s the day you remember.

“The coldest day of the year

— Annelyse Gelman, “Illusionist,” published in Nailed Magazine (via bostonpoetryslam)

burning in your heart

“In some ways,
you were my first,
and in some,
you were my last-
with you I learned
how not to love.”
m.v., You taught me to guard my heart. (via findingwordsforthoughts)
