The semi-art blog of a semi-person who needs to make more art. Welcome to my cozy corner of the internet.

I was in tears by the end.
I pray no one finds your children beautiful enough to break open.
Introspection - Full Image
When I go for long walks or sit out on my porch at night for a while with nothing to distract me, it feels like my mind is able to sort through all the extraneous thoughts and mental noise I’ve accumulated and just kind of… let it go. It’s something I don’t do often enough.
I’ve spent a long time
trying to think of the words
to use to tell you—
but it isn’t worth it to
be indeterminate, so I will just say:
I’m sorry that I died.
I didn’t know what it would do
to you (I still don’t know,
really, but every time you look at me,
you look like you’re seeing a ghost,
and you’ve seen a thousand ghosts,
but when you look at me, you still look
confused and scared and just
a little happy, but only a little).
I didn’t know that it would make you
cling to my life in a way I never did
before I met you (before you, it was only
existence; only numerous deaths
by your association gave me the life
which you cling to now so fiercely
with a grip as tight
as a noose, if a noose
could only keep people
I’m sorry that I died,
and I’m sorry you had something
to remember me by that wasn’t even
mine; I’m sorry you drank.
I’m sorry you had nightmares.
I’m sorry that you had to lose me
again, to memory and monsters
and my own vicious guilt.
I’m sorry we never took any pictures.
I’m sorry that I died.
I will try very, very, very hard
not to do it again.

when van gogh was out painting in a field some kids shot him by mistake while they were playing with their dad’s shotgun but he told everyone he shot himself so they wouldn’t get in trouble and then he DIED and for a long time everyone thought it was suicide but it wasn’t a suicide he was just trying to help the kids that’s the saddest thing in the world im gonna throw up
How I handle any situation
It’s quite interesting when you like someone, you start to notice that everything about them seems more attractive when it seems normal to everyone else. Their smile seems so much brighter. The sound of their voice is more soothing. Their goofy laugh sounds much cuter. Every little thing about them just reels you in. It’s like their imperfections don’t seem bad at all.
awkward teenage smooches
hold my hand and walk me round an art gallery and whisper fake stories of the paintings in my ear
