Peter’s not coming, darling.
You can latch the window and take the white ribbons from your hair,
stop sleeping with socks on and packing going-away bags.
Whispering the names of the lost boys will not hasten them to you.
Clapping your hands is no enchantment.
There is magic, though, in lining your eyes,
and spells to be cast in sharpening your tongue.
Come to me, darling, and I’ll show you how queens carry themselves.
I will teach you how to wrangle womanhood and tame it into a lapdog,
to recognize pirates without their hooks and rapier them with words,
to say no to heartless boys who need mothering
and make peace with stern princesses and jealous faeries.
I will help hide away childhood in the gilded cage of your ribs,
where it may blossom and thrive in the wildest part of you.
Here you will never grow old, never die.
Here is your Neverland, laced through your heart like corset strings,
tied up tight into a ribbon no span of years can unravel.
― "To Growing Girls Who Dream of Neverland" by S.T. Gibson

i don’t care
if it makes you
uncomfortable
to know
i’m in pain

i
am uncomfortable
every day of my life
i
have been suffering
while you turned
your head
i
have cried
enough tears
to fill the chasms
you dug between us
when you decided
me dying
was not something
you cared
to watch
or stop

you can go to hell
if you don’t like
my poems
because i mention
i’m drinking
and you can go to hell
if you turn your nose
down
when i cope
the only way
i know how
and you can go
straight to hell
if you detach
when i tell you
i’m drowning

i don’t care
how uncomfortable
my discomfort
makes you feel

if hearing
me cry
is the worst
thing you’ve done all day
do not talk to me
about discomfort
you don’t know the meaning
of the word.

i feel like once you were emo in middle school youre low key emo for the rest of your life, like you could be 20 in the middle of college wearing uggs or whatever but once you hear the first key to the black parade/i write sins/sugar we’re going down you sprout an imaginary fringe and start yelling your lungs out like its 2007 all over again

fibrofrog:

Hey, remember that time you got sick and never got better?

Yeah, me too.

Spoons.

I have well and truly used them all today.
All I did was:
- have breakfast
- take my dog for a walk
- have lunch
- do the dishes
- change my bed sheets
- go to the movies (The Giver is good btw)
- shower and wash my hair

Now I am completely useless.

Period cramps could be described as your uterus being all happy about you being pregnant and preparing for it all month and decorating and shit. Then when it finds out that hey, I aint got no fertilized eggs up in this hood the uterus gets really angry and decides to take down all the decorations with a motherfucking chainsaw. IT’S THE SAME EVERY MONTH UTERUS. WHY DON’T YOU LEARN. STOP GETTING AHEAD OF YOURSELF.
