How to Write a Poem
Catch the air
around the butterfly.
I took this picture of myself at the end of a day I spent in bed, scared and crying, feeling alone and hopeless and completely desperate.
This is the face of my mental illness. This is the face of my sadness when it is at its most inexplicable and its most pronounced.
I am not ashamed of it.
I wanna talk about why this song is brilliant and why it breaks my heart so much. This is one of those examples of the unsaid saying more than the said. The repeated use of ‘like’ in the chorus holds all of the melancholy. “You laugh like you’ve never been lonely,” when you’ve been lonely too much. “Like I’ll be there to hold you always honey always” but we both know it won’t be always. It’s so heartbreaking. And yet you still “love him with all of your body,” the only line not modified—this is a fact, the only one stated in the song. “Lust is just a child’s game,” like playing house I suppose.

paralecstatic said: i don’t think it’s weird, or that it should be weird, or how could it be weird. i’m proud of you.
It was only weird because I’m not used to talking about what influences my songs on stage but I’m trying to get better at it. Thank you :)
Like silent ships we two in darkness met,
And when some day the poet’s careless fame
Shall breath to you a half-forgotten name—
Soul of my song, I want you to regret.
For you had Love. Out of my life you tore
One shining page. I want, if we must part,
Remembrance pale to quiver in your heart
Like moonlit foam upon a windy shore.
im not excited
but should i be????
