Vanity, Vogue & Vengeance.
I live in a never ending black and white movie starring moi.
I'll never live down to your standards.
& excuse my ego..
“the hours, minutes, and seconds”
I know for a fact that she spent a long time on this, I think it turned out great.
Jibber Jabber from a Jim Jam Jabberwocky
a cigarette butt tries to swim through a puddle,
good luck buddy,
with the knowledge that it can’t bleed,
nor will it suffer discomfort in defeat,
I truly hope it makes it to where it wants to go,
I picture Egypt or Moscow,
dinning on fine fish,
drinking with the best dead authors,
or maybe it will go to my home,
vacuum my rug,
clean the fireplace,
be ready for when I need it,
after making love to the theory of monsters,
but that is if I ever make it home,
this rain needs to stop
New York Eyes, Chicago Thighs
this is who i am:
beside a broken man.
a bewitching empathy
twists me up,
let me sink too…
on my own.
‘I have my mother’s lips and my father’s eyes.. on my face they are still together..’
~ Warsan Shire
This quote is masterful in so many ways.
i look up at the sky and i drink in the stars
a voice in my head tells me “chug, chug chug”, so
i try to swallow as much as i can, and
i throw up star dust all over my friends new shoes, i
am that kid at the party who passed out too early, i
am the one who is too lost in the song that is in the background to hear the joke.
where i can be found is laying on the ground,
staring at the ceiling and wishing
i was under the desert stars.
