"When you speak I like to listen to you because when you speak it feels like hearing a story about the first time somebody saw the ocean, no matter what you’re saying."

"This is love, to sit with someone you’ve known forever in a place you’ve been meaning to go, and watching as their life happens to them until you stand up and it’s time to go."

I feel ashamed

In my stunted failure of blossoming

Hands from the past still tugging at the bud

Prying and prodding nature with force

Crippled and unraveling

Sexuality, bleeding

So long as it smells sweet and beckoning

Who could muster a care for the crumpling of your petals

Who could see the ghost of injustice in the unfurling of your sensuality

Who would care to...

I always wonder why it happened that way, I might be luckier now just not happy enough.

And if you are someone who still carries hope in your heart, kindness in your eyes and generosity in your fingertips despite terrible people happening to you, thank you. You are one of the few truly pure things left in this world, and you deserve to be protected.

The longing to touch/be touched. I feel gratitude when I touch someone—as well as affection etc. The person has allowed me proof that I have a body—and that there are bodies in the world.

Reality continues to ruin my life.

“You are beautiful with or without me. I think you need to know that more than how much I love you or how your hands make my skin feel like it’s new over and over again. All those things are important and true and you need to know those too but sometimes life is a little scary and it gets in the way. Sometimes that means that I will not be able to love you forever or that you will not be able...

"Blessed be the woman whose spine is fastened with titanium and a heart made of steel rope; the one whom has the strength to know the difference between bending and breaking and can raise those let down back up again with her love alone."

If I were to baptize each and every infrastructure in the metro, I will probably give them ridiculous names. To the left is the Tower of Ego. Behind it is the High and Mighty Pride. On to its right is Such Great Grudge. Before you get to it, you have to pass through The Walls Between Us. Five blocks from it, you'll spot the Condominium of Crushed Dreams and The Low-Rise Self...

"Women don't realize how much store men set on the regularity of their habits. We absorb their comings and goings into our bodies, their rhythms into our bones."

"My brain will scream the worst things to stop myself from picking up the camera and shoot, every. single. time. I will want to cancel every photoshoot, because behind this dancing kid with a smile there is a vulnerable human who blushes every time someone likes a photo of hers, but i cannot stop, my camera knows all my secrets, my camera knows who i love, my deepest memories and my biggest...

It is better to be alone, she figures, than to be with someone who can't see who you are. It is better to lead than to follow. It is better to speak up than stay silent. It is better to open doors than to shut them on people. She will not be simple and sweet. She will not be what people tell her to be. That Bunny Rabbit is dead.
― E. Lockhart

Digital painting by Alex Gardner
Maybe one day you'll come back. Maybe you never will and that'll suck, but you can't keep doing this. The blame and the self-loathing and the bullshit. I can't watch that. It makes me hate you for hating yourself. I don't want to lose you. But I'd rather lose you if it means you'll be happy. I think if you come back with me today, you'll never be okay. And I'll never be okay if you aren't. I...

Story: 1. Your lips are movable, crackable, moist halves of language. Not a wooden curve that is always meant to decorate your face.

2. Once what was dissonant has now become a consonant idea through repetition. Reality becomes mundane if you keep it on a leash outside, and feed it from bags purchased from the pet store.

3. Infinity is applicable to the phenomenon of feeling. Not to one...
