like it's the only thing you know how
at the end of the day all this
means nothing
this page

who you loved
and how deeply you loved them
how you touched the people around you
and how much you gave them”

“i don’t know what living a balanced life feels like
when i am sad
i don’t cry i pour
when i am happy
i don’t smile i glow
when i am angry
i don’t yell i burn
the good thing about
feeling in extremes
is when i love
i give them wings
but perhaps
that isn't
such a good thing
cause they always
tend to leave and
you should see me
when my heart is broken
i don't grieve”
Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey

is not about how many people
like your work

you are with yourself
and you

trade honesty
for relatability”
Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey

“apparently it is ungraceful of me
to mention my period in public
cause the actual biology
of my body is too real

it is okay to sell what's
between a woman's legs

mention its inner workings

the recreational use of
this body is seen as
beautiful while
its nature is
seen as ugly”
Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey

has my legs spread apart
like an easel with a canvas
begging for art”

“what i miss most is how you loved me. but what i didn't know was how you loved me had so much to do with the person i was. it was a reflection of everything i gave you. coming back to me. how did i not see that. how. did i sit here soaking in the idea that no one else would love me that way. when it was i that taught you. when it was i that showed you how to fill. the way i needed to be filled. how cruel i was to myself. giving you credit for my warmth simply because you had felt it. thinking it was you who gave me strength. wit. beauty. simply because you recognized it. as if i was already not these things before i met you. as if i did not remain all these things after you left.”
Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey

“love will come
and when love comes
love will hold you
love will call your name
and you will melt
sometimes though
love will hurt you but
love will never mean to
love will play no games
cause love knows life
has been hard enough already”
Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey

foam at the mouth with envy
when others succeed
but sigh in relief
when they are failing

celebrate each other is
what's proven most difficult
in being human”
