Firstly, I'll have you all know that I'm posting this using the new dA app (the official one) and it is fabulous, and I mean FABULOUS. It's so sleek and brilliant and goddamn, do I love it. It makes me wish I could come up with art all the time just so I had an excuse to use it. That's how lovely it is, I swear. :faint:

But anyway, moving on!

My Christmas break officially begins today, and that means one thing: time! Time to reply to all the comments and send out all the thank-you llamas and write all the words. It's also time to apologize once more for not keeping my promise of being active again (I really have been quite sick lately and so very busy with school) and once more to promise that this time, yes, definitely this time, if there are still any of you out there who actually wait for my work to pop up once in a while, this time it's real. I will write. And if anyone still wants to collaborate with a crazy nineteen year old who uses too many metaphors and not enough stories, then please send me a note or something.

Also if any of you are in Manila for December, let's hang out. I know places.

:sad: Please forgive me. Oh, and the app really is so beautiful.
Christmas Break!

throw back this Thursday
to a lifetime ago,
when my bridges were too young
to be fireproof
and I didn't yet know the words
for surrender.

you were my Columbus,
my twisted Magellan,
hands hardened and hungry
for any part of me
that could bear your name.

you sought me and wrought me
dead in the water,
every bloody fingerprint a flag
that marked each brand-new territory
upon my skin -
spread-eagled, supine,
I was greener than grass
and you sent your victory marches
all over me,
steamrolling my rugged edges
and calling me all the kind words for
barbarian.

throw back this Thursday
to a lifetime ago -
people aren't supposed to fall
like leaves;
you aren't supposed to pile them up
and burn them.

throw back this Thursday
to a lifetime ago -
before ache upon ache
was tattooed on these bones;
before my voice knew how to beg
for mercy.

and even now,
I say grace when I am called
to remember you.

and even now,
I am naive enough
to still be so grateful.
conquest
Happy Thanksgiving, kids.

First poem in a long while. Critique, please!

if ever you loved me,
it's all quite gone now --

darling,
I applaud your ability
to shed emotions :

    like a jacket,
    like a snakeskin,
    like a vice.
moult.
you never did, of course.

You stood me up here the very first time you said
you loved me;
and I have been waiting so long
they've crowned me queen just for staying -

    everybody else
was just passing through.
Halfway
Remember, kids: when someone says they'll meet you halfway, they're lying.

I lack sleep. I like good food and pretty things and making people laugh. I love a boy who writes and listens to good music and still gives me that butterfly feeling.

I write when I can, and I hold nothing back.

Architecture student now: I want to see the world and live it and break it and build it from the ground up.

Potterhead. Skinny bitch. Klutz.

I ship:
LION CAKE :heart:
Dramione, Zutara, Dalek, Literati, Rumbelle!

These words are my heart. Forgive me if I bleed.
