A Poem to My Boyfriend's Ex

She's a part of you, whether either of us likes it or not and I want to love every part of you.

A Poem to My Boyfriend's Ex


I know I am not the first

To lay beside you,

Possibly not even the first

To write about it.

I know, full well, my role

Has been played before,

And I see that she has left

Her autograph on your skin.

You always try to hide it.

Always ripping out pages

From the history books,

Always blacking out lines in the scripts.

Yes, I know I ask too many questions

Maybe, that's why I write poems.

I crave the taste of your

Honey soaked answers.

You see, my love, curiosity

Is my fatal flaw.

Now tell me,

What was hers?

I lay in this bed beside you

In the chalk outline she left for me,

Rigorously rehearsing tomorrow's

Lines in my head.

We are light years apart

And in the taunting space

Between our bodies,

Bundles of galaxies thrive.

My love, won't you tell

Me a bedtime story?

May I request the tragedy

Of Romeo and Juliet?

I wonder, does she think

Of me as much as

I think of her?

I eat my jealousy.

And, why do I think of her

When I should think of you?

My gentle lover, who has never

Given cause for my obsession.

I suppose, it's because

She's a part of you,

Whether either of us likes it or not

And I want to love every part of you.

Come, my love, let us

Close this ridiculous space.

No more stories for tonight.

Let us turn off the light.

In the final act,

You look at me

And I catch a glimpse of the universe

In your green eyes.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
