Joan Crawford in Possessed (1931)

82 years later and it’s still relevant

This will never not be relevant.

82 years and we still have to fucking tell men this shit

I overanalyze everything
and can scratch my mind raw
music makes knots in my throat
drowns my eyes in sadness, or love
I forgive quickly, but never forget
I’m messed up in ways I can’t explain
and when I say I am, you won’t believe me

and when I say something obscure
I suppose I’m not paying attention
to how eyes shift and wonder
about this strange concoction of a girl
all wrapped up in her own world, unaware
and if some magic sipped into reality
decided to take me away from it all
I would go, gladly
I’ve seen enough of this world

I’ve looked for a thousand words to love
because love itself seems far too weak
to express what shines inside my heart
when you look at me
and it’s true, I love my words
and word my love too much
and lose myself
to find my soul by moonlight

I’ll write poems, and songs, and books
and I’ll kiss you until your self control
turns to dust
and I’ll memorize your gestures
the lines on your hand
the scent of your hair
and I’ll make you remember me
without even trying
because goodness knows, when I love
the side effects last forever

-Andrea Zapiain

“People should come with warning signs,
Like the ones you see on the back of chemicals,
Warning signs saying I’m an asshole
Or I’m a pathological liar
Or I have an extreme foot fetish, what size shoe do you wear?
If I handed you my warning sign, it’d be a list…
A Warning sign saying that I am no where near perfect,
Nor would I ever want to be.
A Warning sign saying that the volume has to be an even number or else I’ll sit there and only concentrate on how my mind tells me the sound isn’t quite as right as it could be, if only it were on an even number then things would be alright.
A Warning sign saying that yes, for about .04 seconds I am more excited to see my waiter bring me my food than I am to sit in front of your warming presence.
A Warning sign saying that water has to be present when eating ice cream or there will be no ice cream.
A Warning sign saying that sometimes my head overflows with thoughts and no I do not need saving but yes I do need your hand to hold because it can be awfully scary in these storms but i’d ride out any storm if it meant I had your hand in mine.
A Warning sign saying that yes I see this world as a beautiful place, in which I hope to explore but its reality can overwhelm me and the news will never be a channel I’ll watch.
A Warning sign saying I will embarrass you by asking “May I have this dance?” in the middle of isle 6, but there’s no point in asking because half way through the question, I’ll already have taken your hand in mine, I’ll never take no for an answer.
A Warning sign saying I’ll always carry the weight of your demons on my shoulders so long as you stay strong through the night but answer me when I call, because sometimes my own demons come in sight.
A Warning sign saying my heart is a garden and the walls are very high but take the time to see inside because I promise, it’s one of a kind.
A Warning sign saying i haven’t loved the right person yet, and yes I did get burned, and sometimes the scars still show.
A Warning sign saying please never startle me because I’ll hate everything about this planet, including you, for .08 seconds until I can make my heart slow down.
A Warning sign saying I like to get lost from time to time because most misadventures turn into priceless stories, and that’s how I found my favorite spot.
But at the end of the list, there’d be a little note:
Exist with me, we’d do so beautifully.”

the best kind of friendships are fierce lady friendships where you aggressively believe in each other, defend each other, and think the other deserves the world.

today was my last day in my creative writing class and my teacher gave everybody a piece of paper to write down a contract and to put it in our wallets. she said she did the same thing when she was younger and every now and then she’d brush by it and remember that she wanted to write. everybody took time to write out what they wanted and I just sat at the back of the class, sitting on the windowsill and I knew there was only one thing to write but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. at the end of the class after everybody left, I went to thank her for the year, and she told me that people should be reading my words for a long time, but they won’t be able to do that if I’m not around to write them. I showed her the blank piece of paper, and she said it was okay not to write anything, and then I wrote this. I learned the power of words in that class, I learned it was okay to vomit up half a dozen notebooks stained with blood and exploded pens because it means you have something to say.
