nothing but a blue sky

Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.

We are all broken, that’s how the light gets in.

Ernest Hemingway  (via deserted-streets)

Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on.

We found this in an abandoned parking lot today

this breaks my heart a little
I don’t even care that this has color, it’s going on my blog. Quite touching.

(i) You will meet a boy whose lips will taste like raspberries
He will ask you to send him pictures of yourself, in your most intimate state
Do not do it, he is poison, he will use them for his own pleasure then leave you wondering
why you aren’t good enough
Your body is beautiful, but your mind is to die for
He is insignificant

(ii) You will be on the beach one day, a popular girl will point out the stretch marks that delicately lick your hips
She will look you in the eyes and laugh
Don’t you dare cover them up
You are a tiger
You have earned your fucking stripes

(iii) Do not confuse lust with love
You might feel like your insides are melting when he touches your thighs
But it will not be worth the pain of you lying on the bathroom floor sobbing at 4am after he finds someone new

(iv) Wear your favourite shoes all the time
It doesn’t matter if they go with your outfit
So what if they’re bright red?
If you love them wear them

(v) Masturbate
Find out what feels good for you
Don’t ever be ashamed either
You need to find out how to bring yourself to climax
So that you can teach him or her just how you like it, don’t waste time

(vi) Be polite, but if you don’t like something you have no obligation to go through with it
‘No’ is a complete sentence
It does not require justification or explanation

(vii) If you meet someone and he cannot come to terms with the fact that hair grows from your legs, your armpits and your vagina then he does not deserve to be within 10ft of you
You are under no obligation to shave

(viii) Your vagina is supposed to smell like a vagina
It is not supposed to smell like a fucking fruit basket
If he says he will not go down on you because he ‘does not like the smell’
Direct him to the door
Tell him to go and fuck a melon

(ix) If you meet a stranger with green hair that sticks up in all the wrong places
Listen to them
Learn from them, drink in their passion and curiosity

(x) Your mistakes do not define you
Don’t let them keep you awake at night

(xi) You do not need someone else to complete you
You are a masterpiece
Stop waiting for a boy to come and sweep you off your feet
Go on dates, to the cinema, to restaurants
It is okay to do things by yourself
You need to know how to be content with being alone

(xii) Your first and last love should always be yourself.

You will be shocked…when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever. That’s why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.

Read poetry every day of your life. Poetry is good because it flexes muscles you don’t use often enough. Poetry expands the senses and keeps them in prime condition. It keeps you aware of your nose, your eye, your ear, your tongue, your hand. And, above all, poetry is compacted metaphor or simile. Such metaphors, like Japanese paper flowers, may expand outward into gigantic shapes. Ideas lie everywhere through the poetry books, yet how rarely have I heard short story teachers recommending them for browsing.

What poetry? Any poetry that makes your hair stand up along your arms. Don’t force yourself too hard. Take it easy. Over the years you may catch up to, move even with, and pass T. S. Eliot on your way to other pastures. You say you don’t understand Dylan Thomas? Yes, but your ganglion does, and your secret wits, and all your unborn children. Read him, as you can read a horse with your eyes, set free and charging over an endless green meadow on a windy day.
