We were warned, us two,
our mouths full of future,
and our hearts full of freedom –
we were unafraid of the flames,
and the water seemed so far below.
We shook our heads, laughing like ghosts
against the trembling architecture
of our knotted ribcages,
trying to catch the sunlight,
as it settled like dust against our palms.
We unchained our bodies from our islands,
shaking away the rust of heavy years.
Let our voices take thoughtless flight,
watching them hurtle towards
a split-open sky.
Those wax-winged declarations
we sent upwards like signal flares,
our bird-bone promises of eternity,
melted under our reckless palms
and the glare of nights lived too-brightly;
you may call us Icarus,
through burnt-out lungs.
i found a picture of me at a sleepover when i was about 10, and there are 7 of us in the photo
and out of the 6 of us, 4 have children
i don’t even really talk to any of them anymore (one of them, occasionally i do, the rest i haven’t really spoken to in years and years)
but that just made me feel really weird
growing up is strange
please god, tell me we’re dreamin’
good news though: the boy is off for a week at the start of june and he’s coming to stay with me. this is excellent. i have no exams, nothing to do, just lots of cuddling and movie watching and drinking nommy alcoholic beverages and READING BOOKS FOR PLEASURE (oh, it’s been months) and !!!!!!!
i am really quite upset about university being over, and i am scared shitless that i’ve managed to ruin my degree score, but! i have a lovely period of in-between coming up, i hope.
and my parents want another kitten, success ;D
today is a horrible day for anxiety and i have an exam on saturday at 9:30am, I DO NOT NEED THIS, BRAIN.
don’t you love it when people keep telling you you’re wrong, even though you know for a fact that you’re right
and they won’t agree, and even laugh at you for saying what you are
and then you go find proof
and show them
my undergrad degree is over at 12:30 on saturday and i am going to get so drunk my eyes fall out of my head and i sleep for about 7493494374 days afterwards, k.
