when girls press their whole body against you when they hug, it means they like you a lot. also, they’re measuring your body to determine how long it will take them to eat your flesh, a technique shared by boa constrictors

"And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter— they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long."

Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath (via feellng)

If people were punctuation…
I’d be an ellipsis, an indication
of an omitted word, a hidden sentence,
an unimportant paragraph. I want to
make it easier for you to skim over me,
move on to more important things.

(If people were punctuation)
You’d be parentheses, containing
words like afterthoughts,
small bits of information cradled
between your curved hands,
a quiet place to rest.

If people were punctuation…
I’d be an ellipsis, an unfinished
thought condensed into three little dots,
trailing off into silence. I am
the unspoken, the implied,
floating off into nowhere.

(If people were punctuation)
You’d be parentheses, setting
these words apart from the rest,
wrapping yourself around them
and grounding them to the page
instead of letting them float away.

I keep trying to surrender
to the ease of fading away…
but the curve of your hands
hold me in place.

"Monster" is derived from the Latin noun monstrum, "divine portent," itself formed on the root of the verb monere, "to warn." It came to refer to living things of anomalous shape or structure, or to fabulous creatures like the sphinx who were composed of strikingly incongruous parts, because the ancients considered the appearance of such beings to be a sign of some impending supernatural event. Monsters, like angels, functioned as messengers and heralds of the extraordinary. They served to announce impending revelation, saying, in effect, "Pay attention; something of profound importance is happening."
