    Think Of Me As Poetry
    1. "

      1. When a boy who leaves goosebumps on every inch of your skin tries to play you his favorite song, don’t let him. He’ll get it stuck in your head and under your fingertips and when he leaves, you won’t be able to listen to it without feeling like you’re choking.

      2. Don’t let him touch you all over no matter how much you want to feel him against you. Leave a few spots untouched so that when you’re sleeping alone again, at least your left wrist and an inch of your right hip won’t sting with the remaining burn of his mouth.

      3. Don’t let him break your ribs.

      4. Don’t watch the sunset with him. He’ll poison it. You won’t be able to look at the sky without swallowing a mouthful of him.

      5. Don’t mistake wasps for butterflies. Sometimes when you feel your stomach flutter and your hands start to shake it’s pain, not love.

      6. Just because he tells you he loves you doesn’t mean he’s going to stay.

      7. It’s okay to delete his number after he kisses the pretty girl he met when he was drunk. It’s okay to leave when he hurts you. You don’t have to keep falling into him.

      8. When he tells you that you’re beautiful, try to remember that you were beautiful before him too.

      9. Just because he reads and smokes cigarettes and talks about the stars doesn’t mean he’s your soulmate.

      10. After you kiss him, remember to wash your mouth out right away so he doesn’t burn into your tongue.

      11. He’ll kiss you in the rain and take you to little coffee shops. He’ll brush your hair out of your eyes and kiss your nose. He’ll grab your waist and whisper in your ear but six months later you’ll find yourself drunk texting him that you miss him and he won’t respond.

      12. Your heart is going to break a million times. It’s going to feel like the world is falling apart around you. Your lungs will stop working some nights. You find yourself grabbing at your bones trying to hold yourself together. You’re going to feel like you’re dying. It’s going to be okay. You’ll find someone else to kiss you goodnight.

    3. So……new icon!

      Yay or nay?

    4. I love this

      I love this

    5. I fall asleep above the blankets — and wake up above the blankets. I walk to work alone and watch movies alone and love love love love alone alone alone

      Tug and war with the clouds!

                                 ———for where my dis-rhythmic heart belongs

      there is a place in the ground

      six feet below sore toes

                    ———There’s a hole in my sleeve.

      The city lights surrounding are *the un-oxygenated blue tint*

                            after breathing in the stop-light red of the sun. 


      Here is to all the holes and empty spaces

      I wish I could stuff my whole heart in between

                                          to feel a single pulse.

    8. "Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky,
      We fell them down and turn them into paper,
      That we may record our emptiness."
      Khalil Gibran, Poems
      (via quoted-books)


    9. Feeling pretty fly today

      Feeling pretty fly today

    10. When candle light flickers, I think of what is burning beneath

      There is a smile

      in an hour glass

      I only watch

      long enough for it not to last.

    11. "I have fallen into poetry and it has swallowed me up."
      Keith Haring (via poetry-and-insomnia)

      Shhh I hear you

    12. The sun is often too sharp

      I can recognize the silences of those

      whom have been forecast as a human mess of weather.

      Lightning heart —— electric pulse  —— thunder mind ——-

          ———fingers fall like raindrops, 

                          sometimes quiet, often lingering

      Apologize only for tasting the electricity

                 buzz between clenched teeth

                     yet taking no courage to shock the world.

    13. Went on my first photo assignment for the paper the other day. Here are a few shots that I liked.

      find someone
      who knows
      you’re sad
      just by the change
      of tone in your

      be with someone
      who loves the
      feature that
      you hate the most

      fall in love with
      someone who
      looks at you and
      knows they don’t
      want anyone else

      This hit hard. Thank you

    15. I’m running

    About me

    When I grow up, I want to be Paris.

    It's a face!
