and you still wear it braided.

and write poetry in art class
on paper towels with pink Sharpie.

dyed in a river, in a sink, between
your ribs.

and draw on all your jeans
with black Sharpie in music class.

our hair is dyed black in a salon
with purple streaks.

loose around your shoulders.
You hide behind long bangs.

and gummy bracelets, bunched together
under your sleeves.

written.
Even the cries for help she finds
artful.

out of your face,
with pencils stuck in it.
You wear clothes that fit,

and make friends who understand.

falling in love,
emotions that change
the entire galaxy,
that make it look as if
the sky is blushing.

You dream of bridges, and letting your sadness jump.

You are eighteen.
Your hair is long and red
and you wear it braided.

floral prints,
soft fabrics,
things that make you sigh
and think of sleeping.
You still write on your skin sometimes
but you can control yourself now
and you never write anything
that makes you think of darkness.
You buy expensive journals
and fill them up,
no longer afraid of your words.
You teach yourself languages.
You don’t think of yourself as alone.
You think you will survive.
You know you are right.
You dream of bridges, and what waits on the other side.

(Are you going to expect me to apologize for wanting to be close to your heartbeat?)

4. Can you handle blood and needles?
(If I put my bleeding heart in your hands, is your stomach going to turn? Are you going to throw it out in the dumpster behind your place, place it up in a glass cage for everybody to gawk at, donate it straight to science and let them poke and prod their utensils at, or are you going to keep it locked up in a puzzle box that only you and I know how to get into.)

5. How good are you at keeping a secret?
(Will you keep the things I mumble drunkenly late at night just between us, but still hold my hand proudly in front of all your friends?)

20 questions (when trying to figure out where you stand) // a.l.



I wish I knew what to do with my life, what to do with my heart… I do nothing all day, boredom settles in, I look at the sky so I get to feel even smaller than I already feel and my mind keeps poisoning itself uselessly.
     Sylvia Plath
 




It’s incredible how alone one person’s absence can make you feel. I could be in a room surrounded by all my friends and family, but without you I might as well be standing on the surface of the moon.
     — Beau taplin, Moon Landing
 

"If one day speed kills me do not cry, because I was smiling."~ Paul Walker

A girl never express her liking for a
boy,
Thinking that boy should express it
first…
And
A boy never express it with a fear of losing her as a friend,
That’s why love stories end before it
begins...








Even heroes have the right to bleed.
