I'm Rachelle, I'm 17, and I like white hot chocolate.

    Because I remember how it felt to be inexplainably in love.
    And i remember how it felt to miss a touch you hadn't received yet.
    I remembered yearning for hellos and being devastated over goodnights.
    I remember my bones turning to dust under your fingertips
    and my skin shifting with the heat of your mouth.
    I remember how it felt to sacrifice my own happiness for yours
    but what i can't remember is what I did to make you forget
    every time that I made your nerves dance.
    I can't remember what I did to deserve laying in the parking lot
    with a shattered heart at four in the morning
    and I can't remember how you had been capable of being so cruel.
    - r.m.

    They say that smiles are contagious.
    and it’s true that she catches yours like a fever
    But I’m skeptical,
    Because her prideful smirks
    are laced with your taste
    And even the idea of her lips on yours
    hits me like a truck.
    "Who smiles after being run over?" - r.m

    The first time you told me that you loved me I knew it wasn’t true. I read each word from a glass phone screen through squints at 11 pm and no resentment or confusion surpassed the excitement embedded in each of my muscles. I knew you were young and you were naive and you weren’t experienced enough to know that love wasn’t simply a minor fascination with another human being. I wanted to show you what love felt like when it was screamed at 3 am. I wanted to let you be there when our affection splashed out of the puddles we jumped in, or when it ran down your face like your tears the night that we watched The Notebook on your mothers couch. I wanted our adoration to be bright enough to tan our skin in winter and I wanted our passion to pool like the blood behind the skin on my cheeks when you kissed me for the first time. I wanted to be the last one you ever assumed to be in love with merely because my eyes smiled at yours or because you liked how my skin smelled like vanilla. And judging by the booming echo your heart made when it cracked the day I walked away, I succeeded.
    r.m.

    She had an elegant habit of breathing out words like cigarette smoke, each syllable scattering before they had the chance to connect into comprehensive phrases. There were i-n-g’s and “are”s in confusingly inappropriate contexts, and nearly every sentence had a tendency to shift into french before they even slipped halfway out of her dark lipstick-stained lips. Although, surprisingly, considering her incredible passion for travel, not one tip of her stiletto heels had ever come into contact with French soil. You’d be able to tell her personality as soon as you heard her speak. And, please, don’t let her “darling”s and beautiful, melodious voice fool you into believing that she’ll stay with you forever, because I can guarantee that she’ll be planning a new adventure with every breath she takes. An adventure that you won’t be a part of.
    Despite the considerable droop underneath her eyes, and the spontaneous adaptations in her mood, she was flawless. Whether it be six in the morning or half past twilight in the evening, each stitch of her dress managed to rest calmly on her deeply tanned skin, and the wind was never strong enough to blow her voluminous coffee colored hair out of place. She carried herself in a way that conveyed confidence without being overbearing and unapproachable. In fact, it was difficult for her to walk down the busy streets of Manhattan without being stopped once, or twice, or six times. Occasionally, desperate men follow her wide-brimmed hats all the way back to her apartment. These are the times when she feels the most alone.
    "She's a puzzle, but she's worth solving." - r.m.

    All I have left of you are love notes from back when
    You let the blood in your veins morph into ink.
    You would dedicate yourself to transferring each one of
    Your thoughts from your brain onto blue-lined paper
    Simply for the purpose of painting a smile on my face.
    But, I think when you sat down to write the last one,
    you ran yourself dry.
    Maybe you pressed down too hard and got carried away
    and accidentally let your memories and emotions
    attach themselves too tightly to your delightful adjectives
    Until everything we went through had exited your mind.
    Because, as soon as the letter left your hands,
    every ounce of compassion drained from your features
    and suddenly you looked at me as if I had never kissed your lips.
    Now, no matter how desperately I try to extract the smell
    of your skin from the seemingly ancient paper, there’s no use.
    You’re not there anymore.
    r.m.

    One day,
    you decided that you liked writing in pen rather than graphite,
    but that was okay because you still took the time to pass me notes.
    The next month,
    you took back your hatred for loose change and
    started carrying fifty cents around in your pockets,
    but that was okay because now you could get snacks from the vending machine.
    Ten weeks later,
    you stopped wearing the shoes I gave you
    because you said the boots from your mom were more comfortable,
    but that’s okay, because mother is always right.
    31 days after that,
    you asked for a room redecoration, fully aware that once it was done
    every trace of my skin in your bed would be wiped away,
    but that was okay because I swore to always support you.
    I didn’t expect to be the next thing you moved on from.

    I'm obsessively painting my nails.
    Maybe red will make the feeling of your hips
    drain from the tips of my fingers or
    Maybe yellow and green will cause the memory
    of touching your face to fade from my brain and
    Maybe if I keep my cuticles covered
    I won't see your reflection in them.
    I don't know.
    There's nothing else I can do.
    This is a desperate last resort.

    You spent 365 days
    tying my veins in knots and
    rewiring my vocal chords so that
    I couldn't speak anything besides your name,
    but you forgot to fix me before you left.
    I’m here with blood that can't circulate and
    Limbs that are aching from the
    pressure In each of my vessels.
    I'm biting my tongue because each syllable
    of your name is enough to set my throat ablaze.
    I'm beginning to forget
    what my own voice sounds like.

    I kind of want to scream
    and I might want to cry
    and I sort of want to yell
    and I may want to die
    and I know nothing's forever
    but why'd you say goodbye?

    We shone like stars, and for months,
    I thought that we were the bright ones that
    Hung securely on a black tarp every night without fail.
    But now I realize that we spent every single day
    Shooting across the galaxy.
    It felt the same as when the earth rotates.
    It was a movement that my feet couldn't detect
    Until we crashed, and when we landed
    We broke the sun and
    Shattered the moon and
    Cut every string connecting the planets to the solar system
    And now black holes dominate my universe rather than your eyes.

    You were my sun and my moon
    and all (the stars) in my sky
    but now when I look up
    all I see (are) variations of
    the same (sad) gray color
    and I'm not sure how much longer
    I'll be able to paint (without) reds or blues
    Or the color of (you)r skin.

    I wore your plaid blue jacket and
    I spent a winter under your covers and
    I watched the sound of music with you and
    you sung build me up buttercup to me in the park and
    you took me to public gardens and
    you kissed me in the back of your parents car
    so don't you dare act like you don't recognize my face.

    10 Things I realized When You Left Me:
    1. Some people believe there is life after death and I was never sure if I did until you left me and I continued to breathe.
    2. I found myself searching for a new lover immediately so that I may be able to trick my heart into believing that you never existed. It was a desperate and unfair thing to do and now I’m feeling your absence more than ever.
    3. “I love you” doesn’t mean what I thought it did.
    4. You always made fun of me for savoring my food so much that I finished eating 10 minutes after you. I should have savored your laugh more than my macaroni and cheese.
    5. You made giving hickeys a competition and you always won. You still win because even though my skin is clear to everybody else, I can see dark purple marks all over my body when I look in the mirror.
    6. I need to remember my time with you so that I can fix all my mistakes when another boy walks into my life, if that ever happens.
    7. You were my winter, spring, summer and autumn love and every single day of this upcoming year is going to be filled with overwhelming nostalgia of you pushing me on the swingset and tucking me into your bed.
    8. I have hardwood floors and a blue bed-set that you bought for me and you have off-white carpet and a fuzzy green blanket that you like to use even though it gets too warm. You used to always discover strands of my hair in your bed or my stray bobby pins embedded in your rug. In the last couple days that we were together you re-did your room and every piece of me was flushed out and now I’m left with memories of you in my wooden floorboards and sheets that I can’t bring myself to wash.
    9. Once, we bought a bag of pretzels and you didn’t believe me when I told you that I could bite them just right so that they formed a heart until I did it in front of you three times in a row. I tried to do it again yesterday but my teeth kept slipping and I cut my lips on sharp bits of salt and bread. Even my pretzel-hearts broke when you left.
    10. I’ve seen people with your shape of fingernails, or the same broad shoulders as yours, but I don’t think I will ever find another somebody like you.

    I can see everything that I taught you
    in the past 365 days
    radiating through your actions,
    and I can’t shake the thought
    that soon you might stop
    typing in the same style that I do
    and you’ll stop using all of
    the same phrases that I loved to use.
    You’ll eventually start picking up
    bits of other people until
    I won’t even be able to
    recognize you anymore.
    Sure, your freckles will still
    center around your nose,
    and your arm hair will continue to grow
    slightly darker than the blonde on your head,
    but “dearie” and “silly” might
    cease to escape your lips regularly and
    maybe the next time you
    snap to say hello will be the last.
    I wonder how long it will take until you are
    a completely different person
    in an identical body.

    I’m afraid because I’m thinking about the time
    that we made cupcakes together,
    but that’s not the scary part.
    In one month,
    or in 893 days,
    or in a year,
    or in any amount of time in between,
    I’m going to forget that we ever baked together.
    And I won’t even notice that the thought of
    one of my happiest days escaped.
    Nearly every memory of when you loved me
    is eventually going to slip out of my brain,
    without my permission.
    I promised you that I wouldn’t forget you,
    But I don’t know if it’s avoidable anymore.
    I’m terrified.

    Once we learned to trust each other,
    You introduced me to your favorite band and
    I introduced you to my best friend.
    Now
    We seem to have forgotten what trust means.
    You two are taping memories of
    each other in scrapbooks and
    I’m blasting Hedley alone in my room.
    I never expected to exchange
    anything but smiles with you.

    Fall in love with someone
    who wakes up one morning
    and decides that they don’t love you anymore.
    Lose yourself in the eyes of somebody
    who will use them to look right past you.
    Let your heart shatter, because if you don’t,
    You’ll never know who to avoid.
    You need devastation in order to overcome it.
    If you never feel worthless,
    you won’t understand what it means to love yourself.
    If you never feel alone,
    you won’t learn to appreciate company.
    Surrendering your heart to the boy with icy eyes or
    The girl with an evil smirk will leave you reduced to
    nothing more than broken glass,
    But I can guarantee you that in a 60 days, or 8 months, or 3 years,
    Somebody will make a masterpiece out of your hearts’ shards and
    Suddenly, you will be thankful for each time your knuckles broke
    From holding the wrong person’s hand.
    r.m.
