Reader. Writer. Romantic.

You are the company you keep
You are the stories you read
The movies you watch
The songs you sing

You are the sports you play
The teams you cheer on
The stories you tell
And the people you love

You cannot escape from who you’ve become
You are a better person because of it
But also worse

You are the company you keep
And they’re not the kinds of people I would call nice
They’re not the kind of people who I would ever befriend
They are loud, obnoxious
And possess qualities I abhor

I may not be able to describe in detail
That which repels me
But I know to trust my gut
To go with my heart
And these are not people I would dare to befriend

We are very different people
You and I
We have our vices
And our flaws

They have become a part of you
And I can’t take that away from you
Either I learn to live with the anger and hatred that comes with being in their presence
Or I break my own heart
By saying good bye
To the one person who I love more than my own life
Who has become the sun by which my world revolves
Extinguished
