i was full of
flowers, once.

soft blossoms and a
wild, arcing sky that
would have taken
your breath away.

but now i am
watching the
petals of my
skin swirl
down the drain
and thinking
about how
my depression
is a bodily
pesticide,
slowly stunting
all kinds of growth
until finally,

nothing tries to
grow anymore.
i'm still alive guys, i promise! just having a real tough time of it lately and took time off from most platforms to take care of myself. much love, i hope you're all well :heart:
days have
stopped being
days,
the guts
pulled out and
replaced
with empty sleep.
nights the same.

and the rest of
it leaves
a stale taste
on my sheets.
"What do you say when you’re not enough to make someone stay? What do you do when you meet the love of your life and realize it’s all about timing? How do you accept that no matter how perfect you are for each other, circumstances get in the way? How do you compete with that kind of fate?” - Katie Kazinsky -

love; concrete shoes in the ocean.
see,
that's the thing
sweetheart,
all anyone ever
tells you is that
it's going to be

'okay.'

(you are telling me
that you are leaving.)


'okay.'

they don't tell
you what to do with
the pressure in
your chest on
the dark days,
or how to
uncurl your fists
from your hair
or your nails
from your skin.

'okay.'

(you are telling me
that you don't know if
you are coming back.)


'okay.'

maybe i don't want

'okay.'

maybe i'm tired of
only ever being

'okay'.

(i am building walls
again and you are prying
my fingers from my hair.)


i want more than this,
i deserve a word so full of
hope and safety that it
weighs my tongue down
with flowers.

give me a mouth full
of flowers and remove 'okay'
from your vocabulary.

i need more than this.

Three-and-twenty years old, I am a lot of things but mostly I am hopelessly at odds and ends with myself.

I am full of diseases you can't see and words I can't write but I'll never stop trying. My heart beats with a stop stop start and I wonder if that will ever matter to you.

This is the way my world ends.

Tag a quality deviant: You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart
