Soap and Water

i have a blue mattress at home. on some days, i like to rip away its bedsheets and curl up on it. i've known it for twelve years; it reminds me of my mother when she was healthy. it reminds me of my father when he didn't have worry lines etched all over his spirit.... Continue Reading →

a ballad for empty

I think I'm a wound waiting to be cut open. A mass of tranquil emptiness. People try to put things inside me. Things like love and empathy.

mend

when something in you breaks, please mend it. sit down and pick up a needle and teach yourself to sew, slowly. don't hurt yourself. don't give up on yourself. because nobody else is going to raise battle axes for your fight if you don't. 08.04.2018 The April Challenge // Day 8 Image Source: Pinterest

i think you're a little lonely. but that doesn't mean i would pass my time sitting by your side, waiting for you to notice me. 'cause you see, your loneliness seems like a facade to me. you don't know how to fill in all the empty spaces in your body — you don't know how... Continue Reading →

falling in love with you.

sometimes, you seem like someone i could fall in love with. sometimes, you don't. during those times, it feels as though all my nightmares come true and i can find them all in your eyes. you don't seem very nice during those times. i used to think that your skin was soft but it took...

~ why.

falling in love with her felt like accidentally biting your tongue. your eyes teared up, some blood was drawn and it was all over in a second. and for months after that you went, fuck. fuck. that fucking hurt.   07.04.2018 out of love // 06   The April Challenge // Day 7 Image Source:...
