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.

do you remember?

i was the first to
show you the shape of your
own heartbreak.

i carved my
initials into your
pericardium and left
your chest gaping.
you, a fish out of water,
your soft belly exposed to
the fisherman's
blade.

i left you
drowning in love for
me.

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.
