"I have wanted to kill myself a hundred times, but somehow I am still in love with life. This ridiculous weakness is perhaps one of our more stupid melancholy propensities, for is there anything more stupid than to be eager to go on carrying a burden which one would gladly throw away, to loathe one’s very being and yet to hold it fast, to fondle the snake that devours us until it has eaten our hearts away?"

(because I am trying to take care of myself,)
it is hard not to tell myself that I deserve better
than waiting for a man
who has never asked me to wait for him.
— "The Way Your Mouth Curls Around My Name Makes Me Foolish" Trista Mateer (via tristamateer)
Peel your heart like a pomegranate.
Offer it to him, palms outwards.
Watch him come away
stained red by you.
You’re in his teeth.
He’ll kiss you with that mouth.
