  • TW: cursing (singular f-bomb), heavy topics

    with all the lies behind your eyes
    you must find it hard to cry
    weighted sighs escape like knives
    when i try to sleep at night
    but you have no trouble there
    you seem not to care
    it must be nice to not hurt inside
    you must be walking on air
    blades of distrust slip into my spine
    it's not nice it's not fair
    just separate my vertebrae and end it there
    please let's stop pretending to care

    oh happy father's day
    i hope it's the best day
    i wish i meant it
    fuck i am demented

    thank you for all you've done
    for all of your mistakes
    i must be the biggest one
    and don't you know it
    but you just think i'm a little weird
    there's so much you haven't heard
    and i'll go on a boat ride
    and i'll do the dishes inside
    and i'll give you a hug
    knowing you view me as scum
    but you don't know it

    oh happy father's day
    i hope you have the best day
    i wish i meant it
    wouldn't that be splendid

    sometimes i need to cry
    you hate who i am truly
    and you don't know me
    how many times have you wished i died
    unknowing... at least a hundred times
    i'm sorry i'm not who you wanted

    oh happy father's day
    i hope you have the best day
    i wish you plenty
    and only good things

    other sons don't have to worry
    about their parents ending up dead
    because they were honest
    i wish you loved me
    and wished me good things

    oh happy father's day.
    i wish you the best things.
    i really mean it.
    my heart is bleeding.
    i keep my feelings secret.
    i want you to keep breathing.

    happy father's day.

    Coffeewriter Wow…this is amazing. The emotion I felt was unbelievable, just wow. I am speechless. You really out did yourself there. I just hope this isn’t based on personal experience…

  • Living with narcissists makes you wish you were the main character in a movie so you could punch them in the face and everything would be okay afterwards and they would stop bothering you

  • i see your nook with somber eyes
    a hollow filled with things that shine
    a reflection of what cannot be
    i have no space to create anything for me
    bitter burning beneath lids of closed eyes
    as i imagine this the dark hollow where i would reside
    if i like you had a place to hide filled up with things
    that felt genuine and matched who i was inside
    scented with sandalwood and linen and spice
    Poly fiber polyester cotton sheets suffice
    adorned with symbols and plushies and treats
    and lot of books for me to read
    if i were you if i were free

  • talons drawing pretty patterns on my back
    grating scritching scratching up the scabs
    roughing up unhealed marks from the past

    please help me get rid of these chickens

    i don't think i'll be the same
    i have one pecking at my brain
    i can hardly see of late
    the dark wings cover up my face
    they built a nest in my ribcage

    fluttering feathers are inside my lungs
    the chickens call out 'one of us?'
    i cannot hear now past the clucks
    the chickens call out 'one of us?'
    i have no choice i have no trust
    the chickens call out 'one of us'

    so i'm a rooster i'm a pen
    i'm a nest and i'm a hen
    there are eggs under my skin
    there are feathers deep within
    infiltrated by my kin

    i'm afraid of the chickens
    if my thoughts stray to success
    to leaving this forceful nest
    i hear them still in my head
    my healed scars blazing red

    the chickens call out 'one of us?'


  • My luck is the lowest stat. My charisma is a tiny bit above mid. My strength is low. My dexterity is low. My perception is low. My agility is a bit below mid. My speed is mid. My intelligence is a teeny bit above mid.

    Spearmint your poetry is miles above high. your empathy is leagues above high. your kindness and goodpersonness are lightyears above the highest of highs.

    Go write!! Forget the perfectionism. Forget the stress. Just throw some ideas on the page. It's one step closer to the end. Face your fears. I'm challenging YOU because I know YOU can do this!!

  • Angsty Loki fanfic snippet <.<

    Spoiler! :

    It was bitter here. The cold wind whipped the harsh smell of gasoline through the parking lot, and the cigarette he poised at an angle between his pale slender fingers burned his lungs. The gas station wasn't all that godly but Loki was tired of being around things that reminded him of the misleading tapestries of his youth. There were no gold plated lies here. The parking lot was vile, strewn with puddles and garbage, and it was honest. This was Midguard and everything was pathetic. It was so very unfortunately fitting.

  • One does not simply

    take Boromir for granted
    ChieTheWriter wrote:can we talk about this meme

    A timeless joke to be sure, but people don't think about the fact that since the day he was born Boromir woke up and saw the smoke of Mordor out of his bedroom window. He spent his entire life pushing back against the evils that came from those gates. He led armies against the orcs of Mordor. He looked death in the eye and kept fighting. He lost friends and soldiers to the filth that came from the black gates. His entire lineage going back hundreds of years had dedicated their whole lives to protecting the free world from Mordor's death and destruction. Of anyone in Middle Earth, this guy is a Mordor expert and knows that one does not simply walk up to the gates and ask for admittance.
