    All you want is to be real again. To feel flesh against your flesh
    and to stop lying with “I’m good.” when you mean “I’m burning.”
    But the wood burns quickly through the versions of you
    that you used to be till you don’t recognize yourself.
    —WICKER PEOPLE

    ...the word ‘pretty’ is a skin deep, six letter prison they put you in.

    These memories of you are finally distant rain softened windows.
    I guess this is the meaning of letting go.

    You were always the darkest tale of my life. And somehow I still manage to find something inside you that was cradled in light.

    When I love, I love like torrential rain – heavy and intense.
    I am too softhearted and hardheaded.
    Don’t treat me like the sun, I am not. I am monsoon.

    if your beauty makes them uncomfortable, it is because they have never been taught how to comprehend it.

    Leave if you must. But be warned. I will not allow my bones to become a scaffolding to hold you up when you realize you have made a mistake and try to come back.

    We all weigh joys and darkness and goodness and sin
    you see, we are infinite within this skin we are in.
    So when they ask you what you weigh
    you don’t need to look down at any scale.
    Instead, simply tell them the truth,
    tell them how you
    weigh whole universes
    and storms and scars and stories too.
    —n.g., WHAT I WEIGH.

    There are still roses that will
    bloom in your lungs if you can learn
    to breathe through the thorns.

    It feels like the world only considers a woman to be a woman when she has turned herself inside out giving and giving and giving and giving. And even then, even at the end, it does not thank her. It simply chides her for not having more to give.

    Humans are bad at most things. Love, relationships, parenting, holding ourselves together, being dependable. But there is one thing we are so good at, that we are in fact, spectacular at it. We are all so damned good at being broken open. It’s how the light gets out. It’s how we know it’s there. Because once in a while, someone comes along who tells us life is so much more than just existing. Someone comes along to remind us, to stop being so small and so human. And do better by being so much more.

    Perhaps the actual problem is the inexcusable way
    I have taught myself to love people.
    If my heart was a flower it would be
    an anomaly born without sepal or petals.
    Whole pieces of my soul-gold invested
    inside the bank of someone else’s heart.
    I mean, Aphrodite never shows up at school,
    book in hand, teaching love as the only real art.
    There are no classes in the coping with the loss
    of whole people, no warnings left on memory’s tombs.
    They say love is what makes the world go round,
    but no one ever leaves a note for us in the womb.
    No instruction manual when we are born,
    nor a how-to guide on the correct way to fall.
    Nor one on how to barter pieces of yourself
    without losing an eternity inside someone else’s soul.
    I’m afraid this is why I have always been so lost.
    I have been loved, and I have loved
    but I never learned how to gracefully bear the cost.
    In Which I Admit I Love Badly

    “Yes, of course I’ve hardened, of course I have had to change to survive in this unforgiving world. But somewhere inside me, there still lives a little girl who once tried to invent a time machine, just to go back in time to save Vincent Van Gogh from his sadness when she heard he ate yellow paint to get the happiness inside him.”

    To be human
    and love someone
    is savage beauty,
    and there are no gods
    to answer for it.
    Perhaps this is why
    we choose betrayal:
    because no one
    can help us decipher
    what love really is.

    Atlas wanted to learn what women would have to endure. So he lifted the earth on his shoulders and kept it there for an eternity.

    I will not give up the flowers in my heart for stones just because the world is a hard place. The world is only hard because it needs more flower hearted people.

    Once
    you were made of the sky
    do you remember that?
    Before they told you
    what you were supposed to be
    Before they destroyed
    your elegant wings.
    Before they tricked you
    and chained you to an idea
    to a prison they made for you
    branded you with a label, with pain
    Tried to remold you
    into something
    easier for them
    to understand.
    But your blood
    didn’t let you
    forget, did it?
    The taste of the sky,
    The memories of flying
    to the horizon just to kiss
    the sun before he fell asleep.
    Once Apollo himself loved you
    so much, that he softened
    the sun’s heat so it could
    not melt your wings.
    He is still waiting for you
    to remember who you were
    before they turned you
    into something they understood.
    Come, you have always known
    what it would take
    to eat those chains,
    to fly free again.
    Nothing about this
    was ever going to be easy
    Freedom was built
    on backs and bones and blood.
    Take the thing
    that is owed to you.
    Forge new wings
    in the belly of betrayal.
    Watch them quiver
    as you rise again,
    this time breathing fire
    your spine made of fury.
    Show them what happens
    when they try to take the voice
    from those born of the sky
    Become your own battlecry.

    Sadly, sometimes the people who take permanent residence in your heart will be the ones who walk very temporarily with you in your life.

    How many people we pretend are ours, all for a snatched second of happiness; only to watch everyone we have ever loved disappear into the ether.

    “People will sabotage your soul, ravage your kindness, vandalize your reputation and still have the audacity to ask you to love them and give them more.
