Day 16

A picture of someone who inspires you.

Sylvia Plath.

Not easy to state the change you made.
If I'm alive now, then I was dead,
Though, like a stone, unbothered by it,
Staying put according to habit.
You didn't just toe me an inch, no--
Nor leave me to set my small bald eye
Skyward again, without hope, of course,
Of apprehending blueness, or stars.

That wasn't it. I slept, say: a snake
Masked among black rocks as a black rock
In the white hiatus of winter--
Like my neighbors, taking no pleasure
In the million perfectly-chiseled
Cheeks alighting each moment to melt
My cheek of basalt. They turned to tears,
Angels weeping over dull natures,
But didn't convince me. Those tears froze.
Each dead head had a visor of ice.

And I slept on like a bent finger.
The first thing I saw was sheer air
And the locked drops rising in a dew
Limpid as spirits. Many stones lay
Dense and expressionless round about.
I didn't know what to make of it.
I shone, mica-scaled, and unfolded
To pour myself out like a fluid
Among bird feet and the stems of plants.
I wasn't fooled. I knew you at once.

Tree and stone glittered, without shadows.
My finger-length grew lucent as glass.
I started to bud like a March twig:
An arm and a leg, an arm, a leg.
From stone to cloud, so I ascended.
Now I resemble a sort of god
Floating through the air in my soul-shift
Pure as a pane of ice. It's a gift.

My love for you grows, and grows, and grows, and grows.




1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Your heart felt good, it was drippin pitch and made of wood. And your hands and knees felt cold and wet on the grass to me. Outside naked, shiverin looking blue, from the cold, Sunlight that’s reflected off the moon.

About me.

Here are a few little facts about myself for readers out there. :))

  • One day when I own a house with property I want to own goats. I think they are so cute with their beards.
  • I do not drink alcohol or do drugs. I would like to consider myself "straight edge". This is my religion. 
  • I love old Rock music. 
  • I don't know what I would do without my bike, I just love to ride far out into wilderness and forget where I am. 
  • I love my cat, she is like my other child.
  • I have been an artistically inclined person my entire life. Painting and drawing are my vice. 

  • I hate socks.
  • The smell of the ocean makes me feel nostalgic.
  • My boy friend has been my best friend for almost eight years.
  • I would love to own an aquarium in my house.
  • I have two leopard geckos, who have the cutest little hands!

What moves you?

The best things in life

Tall trees, ocean waves, children laughing, 
morning sun in my bedroom window,
laughing until we cry, love from pets,
late night conversation, freedom of creativity,
days spent outdoors, self-forgiveness, hiking,
family, honesty, purity, gardening, feeling the
presence of those lost still around, morning 
frost, being yourself, kisses, true friends.

are free.

Day 13

A picture of your favorite band or artist.

Dallas Green. His music has gotten me through everything. City and Colour is his solo band, and Alexisonfire is before he went totally solo, but still exists and are also utterly amazing!

Day 9

A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most.

These two. Even though Rose has only been in my life for 14 months, she is what keeps me going and she has loved me through thick and thin in these months. She is my light and joy in the world. Adam, my brother, has been through everything with me. We had a rough start to our lives but we went through it together and I will always love him.

Got a little deep for a second there, guys! It happens...


Here are some peeks at our day yesterday and the day before...
