245

by Violet

Love is…
Socially acceptable insanity
Unsustainable
Unattainable
Little white lies
Broken promises
Drinking alone at 3 am
18 missed calls on a Saturday night
4 deleted voice messages
Waking up to empty vodka bottles

Love is…
A birthday cake with too many candles
Red roses
Box of chocolates
Her favourite perfume
Meaningful silence
A perfectly harmless lethal injection
A beautiful mistake
Breathing next to each other
Drinking tea in the morning

Love is…
A slap to the face
Bloody cheeks
Bruised shoulders and broken bones
A kick to the stomach
Promises to change
The right shade of foundation
A perfectly timed embrace
My missing chapter
Your broken heart
