Reblog if you think gay marriage should be legal.
"1. My mother has been married and remarried so many times, I lost count. I remember nights when my mother and her husband would argue so much, it would fill the house and glass would shatter. Their words are etched into my skull and I think I still have glass in my hair.
When we used to argue, it would remind me of those nights.
2. After I found out you cheated, I could barely move for a week.
3. Sometimes, I can still barely move. Sometimes, I blame you for this.
4. When I was little, my grandparents got divorced. My grandmother told me, “don’t fall in love with anyone crazy”, as she watched her ex-husband drive by our house for the 17th time that week.
All I could think about was how I thought love made you crazy.
5. I was fourteen the first time I saw the rings around my mom’s neck from her new husband. I was at my best friend’s house, my mother burst through the front door, and fell to the ground crying. A few months later, she was beaten and hospitalized. I cried for 3 days.
The first night you told me you loved me, I could barely sleep because all I could think about were the rings around my mother’s neck.
6. We were still friends the last time you told me you loved me. I thought about how fucking unfair that was.
7. When you speak my name I can still hear the poison drip from your mouth. I know you try to fake your laugh when I tell a funny joke because you can feel our love creep back through your ribs. I still see the hurt in your eyes from the last boy."
Moving to Atlanta to become a stripper.
That’s more than my mom makes and she’s a doctor.
