What I've come up with so far.

Don't expect this to be updated too frequently. But these words are my heart.

Random Favourites

Lovely works of art made by lovely, lovely people.


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

I applaud your ability
to shed emotions :

    like a jacket,
    like a snakeskin,
    like a vice.
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.
Remember, kids: when someone says they'll meet you halfway, they're lying. 

1. You're going to be okay.
2. I haven't forgiven myself yet, but I'm getting there.
3. You can't make homes out of people. You can't make poems out of them, either.
4. Whatever you want to believe, you should know you made me happy.
5. You were always beautiful, even though I never said it aloud.
6. Writing about you is the hardest thing I've ever had to do.
7. Tucked between my lungs is a memory of the day you first smiled at me.
8. It's funny when you realise that I'm an atheist, and goodbye used to mean God be with ye.
9. I don't know the words for the way I felt when you first called me handsome.
10. Sometimes I started fights just to see if I could make you leave.
11. I stopped loving you somewhere in between the third drink and the fourth.
12. I went home that night and I couldn't remember your face.
13. I never read your letters - it would have been too sad.
14. Boys should be allowed to cry in public, too.
15. I wasn't built to handle forevers.
16. I can't listen to Coldplay without thinking of you.
17. My tongue still dances around your first name.
18. Some part of me hopes I never stop giving you butterflies.
19. You deserve so much better.
20. But so do I.
21. If I could have had a forever, it would have been you.
22. Please don't wait for me, darling;
23. I'm not coming back.
things you should've told me.
full title, since dA won't let me have a lengthy one:
things you should have told me, the day before you left.

these words could be true, or they couldn't be. what matters is they might as well be. 
but as a rule, I don't put words in other people's mouths unless I'm sure of them. 

(I miss you.)
To everyone I have responsibilities to (i.e. my groups) I'm incredibly sorry. I've been unwell the past two months and haven't been able to come online in dA or even online in general. I don't know when I can come back and be active again but I know that I'm trying. Please forgive me. I really didn't expect this to happen. I'm still contemplating on whether I should approach my parents about how I'm feeling because I don't want to be diagnosed with something that will make then pull me out of school. In any case, I haven't been writing much since I haven't the energy for it, but I'm trying. As always, I am trying. Please, please understand. Thank you.

Hi guys! I haven't been excessively active lately, although I know I promised. Things happened that I didn't foresee and that I wasn't (and still am not) equipped to deal with, so I was forced to remove myself from a lot of non-academic things I was doing. 

Lately though, I've found more time for myself (and learned that leaving time for yourself is healthy in situations like this) so I've decided to come back and keep my promise.

Aside from doing the weekly feature (although the second week came late, and I'm sorry for that) I will also now be opening commissions. And get this: they're free. I won't ask for anything from you except the freedom to take a bit of time in writing. You can ask me to write poetry of any length, although it'll have to be free verse as I can't rhyme for shit, and I will gladly blaze words onto this screen for you.

Why am I doing this? Well, mostly because I want to give back to a community that's helped me grow so much. I love dA and the lit community and the chance to make someone smile or cry or feel anything using my words is something I appreciate greatly. It's also a little bit because I don't trust myself to write anything lucidly at this point (baaaad things happening to me nowadays) and I do need a little bit of a push or a nudge from someone other than the tiny voice behind my mind to actually get off my butt and start writing. 

Well, that's it for now. If you want to request something (even *gasp* a collaboration!) just comment here that you want to, and as soon as I acknowledge it, send me a note with your details for the poem and plans to rule the world with sushi and cookies. 

Thanks, guys! It's good to be back.

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.

for personal things
for poetry
