the moment you realize you’ve become toxic

the moment you realize you’ve become the toxic person you’ve always been afraid of. i’ve never had the best habits, much like anyone else out there, but very recently i’ve had some of the closest people in my life sit me down and notify me that i’ve been practicing several toxic behaviors. and it’s not…

till death do us part

as i lay me down to sleep, i pray the lord my soul to keep my hand loosens around yours, two bodies in a patch of nowhere breaths shallow the buzzards silent, distant time seems to slow down, your face dances in front of mine, slow motion, free falling but we lay still if i…

an excerpt from a book i’ll never write #2

She shrieked and bounded over to the other side of the kitchen to avoid getting bombarded with flour. Her laugh rang throughout the house that was only occupied with us at the moment and I couldn’t help but smile at the joy that filled her expression. Juliet had just sneak-attacked me with an explosion of…

an excerpt from a book i’ll never write #1

I’ve been looking at her too long for her not to notice that I was dreamily staring at the way she mouthed the words that she was reading. She was either purposely choosing to not pay attention to me, or she was just that invested in the book that was inches away from her face….

monthly music: january

it’s been quite a while since i’ve posted and even longer since i’ve made a post about music. to make up for my absence here is a (slightly) longer list of some songs i listened to in january (very late, might i add) ((but it’s never too late for bops))   ♡ usual jams ♡…

monthly playlist: october

I’ve decided to continue making these little playlist posts because they’re easy and I currently don’t have time for anything right now, if I’m being honest. Which explains my lack of posts. A lot of these songs are sad, now that I’m looking back at the playlist, but it’s fall and fall is the time…

holding onto you

Listen. I love poetry. I love poetry with every fiber in my soul, but there is truly a special place in my heart for spoken word poetry. There is just something about the way a person can get so into their words and forget about everything else and literally pour their heart out through what…

monthly playlist: september

I’ve seen a couple blogs that I love do this, so I thought, why not give it a go? My music taste varies so much it’s almost ridiculous, so apologies in advance for that. I hope you find at least one new song that you enjoy. What were you listening to last month? ♡ usual…

losing my fire

I’ve always thought I was a pretty creative person. I’ve always loved writing and photography, and they’ve always been two of my biggest creative outlets. But, this year I haven’t been nearly as creative as I want to be and it’s crushing. I’ve been writing an okay amount, not as much as I’ve done in the…

18 things I learned at 18

I feel like these posts are very generic and overdone, and I’m definitely not the first person to give advice on life when I barely know what I’m doing myself. 18 is kind of a weird age, even though everyone says 17 is. 18 is like, you’re technically an adult but I’m still in high…
