    I am bitter, for everything god means to me. God is disappointment and loneliness, a lack of faith in parents and teachers and people I was told could help. God doesn’t exist.

    It was “mutual”, they all said. Neither one’s fault. No one stepped up and said they had ended it. Because it was “mutual”, whatever that meant to them. That is not what we knew to be true.

    Distinguished is such a funny word. It makes me think of people in ridiculous ruffled neck things and tights and beards that are curled at the end. I’d rather be absolutely ridiculous than be a distinguished gentleman anyday

    Thread Holds us together by sheer lines. Tiny lines, we never see this thread. It holds me to you and us to the ground. I don’t know if I’m in love with you. It’s just that I’ve grown to you and I’ve grown with you, and I’m attached by our thread. I need you, and […]
