 “5 months” was submitted by Jovana Rai. 

After 5 months, I finally changed my background because there is no us anymore. There’s no point when we are nothing, but I can’t stop thinking about you and how in love I am with you.  If I  could  exchange my last words, they would be different, trust me.

After 5 months, I am high and low on love and wondered if someone could help me stop thinking of you because I get panic attacks thinking about her having you entirely. Thinking of you rattles me to the core and I have this feeling that I’ve lost my mind entirely. Love’s not supposed to make you feel like you’ve dying a thousand deaths, but if it doesn’t ….is it really love?

After 5 months, I tried to convince myself to stop thinking of you and move on with myself, tried to tell myself that it’s some sort of illusion and you’re just a pretty face with a beautiful soul…perfect in every way. You wouldn’t go for me with my passable face and decomposing personality.

After 5 months, I can’t stop, because you dominate my brain and I wonder if you think of me. I wonder how you’re doing and if you’re happy… I hope you’re happy, at the very least.  I don’t know what else I’ve thought of in these 5 months.

After 5 months, I lay in bed, thinking of how lovely it’d be if you were right here. I fall asleep with you on my mind and wake up the same. I realized every day that I wanted to get away from you. I tried to run from you and the thought of you. I’m trying to run away from the same person I’m chasing.

After 5 months, I’m thinking of you, but you’re thinking of her

After 5 months, I still love you and you love her

After 5 months, I’m still trying to forget about you and you’ve forgotten about me entirely
