my undoing will be that i assume everyone wearing something with a rainbow on it is lgbtq+

"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."

"I have an infinite god-shaped hole inside."

-- Melissa Broder being fucking relatable

it could have different sections for different forms of intersecting disabilities including like developmental, physical, chronic, and what we could do for those who have multiple ones

it would be cool and probably helpful if we wrote accessibility guides for pride, but idk how we would go about it let alone meaningfully distribute it so that pride organizers could both be aware and make the changes needed

not always believing that you're smart, good, and important doesn't stop it from being true!

"For that’s what poetry is–a way to live through time
And sometimes, just for a while, to bring it back."

— John Koethe, from “Ninety-Fifth Street,”

"All that liquor and those sticky kisses I saw and the dirt that settled on my skin on the way back is turning into something pure."

-- Sylvia Plath, "The Bell Jar"

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.

i am powerful and i am strong.
you are powerful and you are strong.
it is the queer condition. :heart_pride: 🌱

i know it's early but any gays going to chicago pride?

god though so many of us have died, you know? i don't know all of the queer people who died on the way to where we are now, but deep inside me i feel them and i miss them

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

we must hang up in the belfry where the bats in moonlight laugh
we must stare into a crystal ball and only see the past
aND IN THE CAVERNS OF TOMORROW WITH JUST OUR FLASHLIGHTS AND OUR LOVE, WE MUST RUN WE MUST RUN WE MUST RUN

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

:yell_reverse: open up the gates of hell and ROLL ME THROUGH,
fire and rock im coming home to you

my #1 i like to do when im tipsy is tell everyone i love them and listen to upbeat queer music and i think that's pretty cute of me

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. :blobheartcat:
