ever felt like this?
WHEN STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN
ARE WE GOING ‘ROUND THE TWIST?
#it was an iconic australian children’s show from the 90s#that was about as bizarre as a david lynch film and was frequently totally inappropriate for children
Derek Walcott, “Love After Love” (via oofpoetry)
After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn…
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure…
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth…
And you learn and learn…
With every good-bye you learn.
"After A While," Veronica A. Shofstall (via commovente)
You pierce through your skin with sharp blades and blunt knives. Poor thing, so amused by the pain, so pleased by the scar and stain. Blood trickling down your sickly skin, bursting from every vein. What do you hope to achieve? A relief from the numbness and cold rain. Push it down, stare at it. Watch it heal. It’s not going away is it? Precious thing, you are not made of clay, to be sculpted and bent. These wounds will build walls and trap you within. Young thing, you pierce through your skin with sharp blades and blunt knives. Why are you so intent on goodbyes?
