  6. time.

    she is not in this for the long haul, she has never stayed long enough to be part of the artwork.

    she is, beautiful. and i, i watch her mesmerise him into nothingness. he melts and she gathers the liquid in her warm hands for the funeral that will be their bed that night. i have yet to see her cry.

    why do her eyes not flutter down when he looks at her? does she not feel the shame that i do?

    or is it, that she feels it all and stands, resolute, in it’s light?

    i do not know her well, but i think she knows me entirely. she knows that, i will walk in tandem with her steps and she will still be ahead. 

    always, a martyr to my memories.

    he is, beautiful.

    in all his splendor, he does not hold more than an ounce of me.

    but, i will lay still under 6 feet, taking the scent of him into my lungs.

    in him, caskets lay like sardines of all the ones before, past.

    we are in this together now, we know each others bones, we know each others jaw lines.

    we have kissed death and lived to warn the others. but, it is sweet and there’s an addiction that I had not expected. 

    he is all that takes my breath away and i don’t want it back. i offer him the next. and the next after that, i give away in glee.

    i want to be still like him but i do not have the patience. i want to be a thunderstorm, instead.

    i always have been, it is all i understand.

    i destroy everything i touch, he destroys everything i think i am

    maybe, he is my death.

    maybe, he is life,

    for everyone else.

  10. "Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow , for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something."
    — Kurt Vonnegut  (via ambermozo)

    Dear Future Daughter:

    1) When you’re at some party, chain smoking on the roof with some strange girl with blue hair and exorbitant large dark eyes, ask her about her day. I promise you, you won’t regret it. Often times you’ll find the strangest of people have the most captivating of stories to tell.

    2) Please, never mistake desire for love. Love will engulf your soul, whilst desire will emerge as acid, slowly making it’s way through your veins, gradually burning you from the inside out.

    3) No one is going to fucking save you, anything you’ve read or heard otherwise is bullshit.

    4) One day a boy is going to come along who’s touch feels like fire and who’s words taste like vanilla, when he leaves you, you will want to die. If you know anything at all, know that it is only temporary.

    5) Your mental health comes before school baby, always. If its midnight, and you have an exam the next day but your hands have been shaking for the past hour and a half and you’re not so sure you want to be alive anymore, pull out that carton of Ben and Jerry’s and afterwards, go the fuck to bed. So what if you get a 68% on the exam the next day? You took care of yourself and at the end of the day that will always come before a high test score. To hell with anyone who tells you differently.
