The only advice I can give you is:
Try to forget.
Try to forget how she tasted like nectarines and unkept promises,
How her hair smelled like green apples and summer.
Try to forget that her heart was never really yours,
That she still carries your heart in her back pocket, sandwiched between spare change and a tube of lip gloss.
Try to forget all the inside jokes, all the nicknames she gave you,
That she’s clawing all her favorite swear words into the pale skin on your best friend’s back.
Try to forget how she swore never to leave you, never to break you,
How she vowed to be the first to stay and the last to be.
Try to forget her.
One day you will see her in the street and for a minute you will love her all over again.
Just try not to remember why.

happy international women’s day
Why isn’t there a white/Caucasian female? We’re supposed to be celebrating the endless and powerful spectrum of women all over the world.
Because not only do women of colour face oppression by men on a daily basis, they also face oppression by white people on a daily basis White women are very well represented in comparison to women of colour - they’ve had numerous TV shows that are white feminist-centric - eg Girls, Sex and the City and also movies like Mean Girls. A celebration of solely women of colour is necessary in order to empower us and bring us at least to the same status of white women.
Women of colour are not represented very well in white media, and are told to get their own shows but when they do get their own shows they’re told “wow, an all coloured show? isn’t that kinda racist???” In fact, white people make about only 30% of the world, meaning white women are 15% of the world’s population.
Basically what I’m trying to get at is if the white population represented women of colour better then we wouldn’t need a separate celebration of our achievements. But they don’t, so we do. It’s like that post about Mario Kart - you don’t get the blue shell if you’re already in first place. I’m sorry if this didn’t make sense, it’s 1:30 in the morning.
bless you for replying to this is a manner much better than i could have done.
