"If I can’t be sated and de-thirsted 24 hours a day I want to be lifted up out of my body so I don’t have to feel anything or so I can feel only euphoric.
Sometimes poetry does one of these things for me: sates or de-thirsts or lifts.
I read my first poems at six.
I wrote my first poems at eight.
I have since tried many other ways to fill the god-shaped hole, but poetry is one of the safest ways I know how.
The main consequence of reading poetry, for me, is writing poetry."
when you tell me you love me
i can actually see it
your breath frozen in the air
newborn droplets of ice
you were the one thing I got right
i'm measuring heartbeats and miles away
you held me together
i used to burst and decay
we got off the airplane
a couple of runaways
i'm glad that you stayed
i want to say again before i fall asleep that i love you all so much. i know that can seem trite because i don't know a lot of you, but i don't have to know you. i love you. we're all doing the best we can and we're all good at heart. i hope you all find what will most satisfy your hearts. you're all so so good and i love you so much.
lyricposting, all caps
COME ON AND JUST TAKE MY HAND WE"LL
WE'LL RUN AWAY WITH NOTHING
BUT OUR LOVE TO SHOW
WE'LL DANCE IN THE STREET
W MUD ON OUR KNEES
AND SHOW THE WORLD
WE'RE EVERYTHING THEY WISH TO BE
BUT NOTHING THAT THEY WISH TO SEE
YOU HELD ME THROUGH ALL THOSE BAD TIMES
THE FRIENDS THAT GOT LOCKED UP
AND ALL THOSE FRIENDS
THAT NEVER MADE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT
i am the most useless fucking piece of trashpunk ever but i do my best to love the people around me and contribute to my community when im able and that's enough. being a force that loves and supports when they can is enough. you don't have to be a cog in the wheel of capitalism to be a "real adult". y'know? just have good intentions and love in your heart
i love you all. i love that when im surrounded irl w people who don't understand i can come here and know that you intrinsically do. we might be bad at things culture believes are important but we're real good at loving each other and supporting each other and that;s actually the most important thing.
