I wanna be famous
so that when all of them stand to their feet
and scream their lungs out
for whatever the hell it is I do on stage
I’ll feel like I deserve to have this air in my lungs
and this blood pouring through my veins
This conscious matter will have a purpose
I’ll feel like a cure instead of a disease

"Purging the Past"

I let one out or
it escaped
it’s free to wreak havoc
now all the other secrets will think they can leave.

hurry and make a joke about it
that way, they won’t know how much it fucking hurt

It’s fine, I’m fine
It’s not like that ever happened to me, anyway

that girl was weak
she believed what people said about her
she thought she deserved it

because she was ugly
because of her clothes
because she ate too much and sometimes not enough
because she never said the right thing
because she didn’t matter

I’m not her anymore
but I have all her scars
and all her secrets
and none of the courage to say them out loud

because, if you knew how they treated her
maybe you would start to, too

"Reunion"

I’m no longer sickly
I feel your gravity
come to me quickly
show off your heart candidly

We’ll make a time of it
prior plans be damned
peal away the years
fire of ours cleanses with tears

you are no burden, but a privilege
I love our hearts being bound
ever since We stepped off the edge
We’re falling, but can’t hit the ground

Men’s Issues
  • Societal expectations of masculinity
  • Societal expectations to provide for women
  • No long term reversible male birth control
  • Men who are raped are more likely to remain silent and be dismissed or outright laughed at 
  • Unfair treatment in child custody battles
  • Alimony 
  • No support for male victims of domestic abuse

Not men’s issues

  • The friend zone
  • Women not dating you
  • “Fucking femnazis”

I wasn’t born easy 

My mother fought
sacrificed, slaved
so I could exist

I’d sooner kill than
surrender her legacy to death

I wasn’t born easy and I won’t die easy either

Here’s a thing about The Raven Cycle, ya’ll

The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater is awesome.

One of the reasons I enjoy the series is how Stiefvater weaves all of the plot strings together so that they converge, often in ways that I wouldn’t expect. It’s all very sneaky-like and exciting.

my misty neighbor is so shy
he scarcely catches anyone’s eye

I sometimes see him fetch the mail,
still he’s indistinct behind the veil

his lawn and garden are covered in clouds,
though I think I saw a couple of sows

at dusk, he stalks through darkest night
then balks and breaks beneath morning light

a man-like mist resides next door
following sunset he’s free once more

What’s your estimate?
On when we’ll be able to act normal again.
(Around eachother)
I can remember when
my hands didn’t bleed with apologies and my eyes didn’t shout grief
Let’s forgive our losses and remember not to play with fire. You can’t unburn a church.
