Do not fall in love with people like me.

I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments,

and kiss you in every beautiful place,

so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth.


I will love you too much and love you too hard,

So that you will never find someone quite like me.

So that you will always compare the next person to me.

So that even when I’m gone, you will still be thinking about me.


I will turn every mundane task into an adventure

so you cannot go through them without my ghost in the background

I will change your life so much 

so that when you finally remember me, it will be your most painful, haunting memory


I will love you and not tell you what to do 

Because loving me should be easy

and it is in  your forgetting that I will remember

to never love someone else more than I love myself.


Do not fall in love with people like me,

Because I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible

And when I leave,

you will finally understand,

why storms are named after people.


** i added the italicized parts. I have always loved this bit and I felt like I had to make it my own
