Nugatory,

Petty,

Vain,

The way you trace your lips across the page

That is my body.

You lick from side to side like a pre-stick envelope,

Catching little papercuts,

and tinny blood is dripping down out throats,

From ttlhese wounds that didn’t even bleed.

And yet we pay the postage

And the postman comes

He takes away our love letters

This is beautiful ❤️

So I've been working at this chemicsl plant the last few months. It's a seasonal job and I'll get laid off soon, but I'm starting to think I may miss it. There's something beautiful about getting up early and getting to see the sunrise against steel girders and train tracks. And that's another thing--watching the trains glide by, with

I asked my rune stones what my dramatic hair cut will do for me, I pulled Hagall: Steady pace, with no disruptions, asking for a hand from fate within a situation you do not control. I read into this that fate does not define me, and nothing about me will change. I will just be me, with different hair. Excellent!

vanceowen:
Dramatic hair changes usually signify a refocusing on the self. I hope that it is all positive. And usually a post like this should include a pic of said restyle. ;)

I want to say thank you, I also want to know if they ever fixed the fact that you couldn't just reply to something because it wouldn't notify the other person...

I think you have to tag them in the response. Welcome back though! It's good to see you here.

normally i crave being near someone, or i crave sex. but today i crave having the pressure of someone's body on top of my back, their hand reaching through my hair as they kiss my exposed neck, their other hand holding my hipbone. while i do miss sex, i miss that presence. I miss being loved.

It's tough being single. I had been single most of my life because I was that awkward nerdy guy. I've grown into myself the last couple of years which is amazing. Being single sucks but for me what sucks more is getting into a relationship, investing to much and having it turn to shit. I just had a recent break up and trying to figure shit out myself now......Anyway.....What I am trying to say. Is that you are going to be alright. It sucks now but you are damn pretty and awesome enough that you will find someone right soon.

Amazing that a handful of words in the right order can make a complete stranger a thousand miles away feel like they've been punched in the stomach. In a good way.

feeling very alone. surrounded by people. so out of place. and no where to go. it's raining outside. or i'd go for a walk. but there's nothing. nothing. nothing but sadness.
