    Her words are coated with flour. They are making words, finishing words. When she speaks the particles fly out of her mouth, settling on me like a home.

    Sureness. It’s what we all want, I think. We want to be sure in our happiness, our success, our reality. Sure he loves us, sure she idolizes us… uncertainty hurts.

    My dad is a police officer, so I kind of hate it when people are so much hating on them for being lazy/overly watchful, what have you! :( They rock, man! (Sorry, really tired today)

    Fire like the one that cracks in my living room. Fire like the one that burns my legs when I run. Fire like the sky at sunset. Fire like a person’s eyes. Fire like my soul when I read a poem.

    Actual is real, and real is alive. I want to be alive, stripped to the bone and fluttered against the wind, alive like birds and dirt and cries and everything that makes you feel. I want to be actual.

    leaves, hopes, dust, sound. we scatter things that matter to us, or things we want to get away. i scatter leaves like i scatter my cries, and they float away with none the wiser.

    To sate or not to sate, that is the question … Whether ’tis nobler to be skinny and hungry, or chubby and happily full?

    Five was the name of my heart. After five seconds, I renamed her. To match the moment it all shifted, the bombs fell and the murder was laid. Five doesn’t change.
