"I don't think that being a strong person is about ignoring your emotions and fighting your feelings. Putting on a brave face doesn't mean you're a brave person. That's why everybody in my life knows everything that I'm going through. I can't hide anything from them. People need to realise that being open isn't the same as being weak."

Ghost Pictures

I want my picture back

I know it's your face
And your coffee
And your cheeky little smile

But they're my headphones in the frame
And my hands behind the shot

And it was taken with my love
That you couldn't understand

How can you use it as your face for the world
When I am dead to you?

I don't want people to forget
As you have forgotten
The invisible girl behind the camera
Who loved and lost you

I don't want people to think
That smile was for her

Because I own this one thing of yours
That smile was for me.
