I’ve been breaking all ten fingers for you and you wouldn’t even lift one up for me.
“this is a suicide poem,”
makes a joke about it,
doesn’t hear the echo
of my rope harnesses
and leftover blood stains
that don’t wash out
of my family’s brainstems
he says, “don’t try this at home,
kids,” says robert frost is chronically
depressed, laughs because the bird that
lives inside him is still singing
but me, my canary is long dead
because each hollow cave between my ribs
has long been filled with poison
love, do not joke about depression:
we are all pretending we are
diamond mines where there is only
coal, we are pretending not to hear
our emptiness howl -
love, if you are a teacher,
be tender, be sweet
you never know how close to death
are the creatures in these seats.
Reblog this! People need to know and protect their Tumblr, my friend clicked this and it doesn’t let her on Tumblr anymore!

the way some men say stuff like ‘if a female hit me i’m knocking her the fuck out, i don’t give a fuck, step up like a man get knocked down like a man’ it’s almost like they’re just waiting for the day it happens? some men say it with such intensity and absence of shame that they sound excited to get the opportunity to hit a woman with their full strength and that shit kinda scares me.
if you are a cishet you are incapable of understanding the struggle of queer and trans people
no one fucking cares if your cousin is gay or how many pride rallies you have attended
you will never understand what it is like to be queer and/or trans
I saw all the mirrors on earth and none of them reflected me.
Idealists tend to be giving, trusting, spiritual, and they are focused on personal journeys and human potentials.
okay really who cares what your body looks like in certain types of clothing there is more to life than how a pair of pants or a shirt fits you. You only get one body and IT’S REALLY FUCKING MAJESTICAL so you should not hurt it or hate it because it hasn’t done anything wrong to deserve that.
- student: can i borrow a pencil
- teacher: i don't know, CAN you?
- student: yes, also colloquial irregularities occur frequently in any language and since you and the rest of our present company understood my intended meaning, being particular about the distinctions between "can" and "may" is purely pedantic and arguably pretentious
