Intimacy
I read it somewhere....
when you can't hold the hands just hold it with words.
Tumblr media
Intimacy is not just about making love, its not just a tumble in the bed.
It's about the truth...
When you realize that you can tell someone your truth, When you can show yourself to them...
It's all about the connection.
The intimacy of some warm words,
Some warm memories, Some soft illusions ,
Some real vibes.
It's a kind of aroma with wholesome feelings.

the ambulance ride to the psych ward was quiet. i'd spent the day crying and sleeping and throwing up the fistful of pills i'd swallowed. i didn't know what to say. it was dark outside, dark in the ambulance, dark in the pit of my stomach where the damage i carried every day twisted and swelled. but little by little, the paramedics started exchanging small talk. they talked and cracked jokes and made fun of each other. little by little, the laughter started slipping through my lips before i could remember all the reasons i had to be sad. sometimes the world is big and terrifying and feels impossible. but sometimes, sometimes it is small enough to fit inside the palms of three kind strangers taking a girl somewhere she can go to get better.

do you remember me? i want to ask, “do you remember me from all the circles i’ve been running in? do you remember how i walked past this threshold, the claws were not all that i was escaping? do you remember the lost daughter or must i be a prodigal?” all i remember is, i keep trying to go home, i’m not sure i know the way back anymore.
so what if the skeleton in my childhood bedroom looks just like me? can you see bones peeking out from frills, blood staining those pretty bows and mud soaking pastel frocks? listen to the ghost with a little girl’s voice whisper, “even the beautiful will rot, every adornment here a reminder of what growing up is not.”
so what if the skeleton in your closet looks just like me? at least one of us gets to go home tonight.
// long way home????? help me find a better title lol
majorly missing tumblr and writing in general, so trying to get back into my element!

I'm definitely a romantic, I don't think life is really worth all the pain and effort and struggling if you don't have somebody that you love very much.

That feminine urge this, masculine urge that ….
Yeah, okay , cool
But what about the Lunar urge to ritualistically disappear every couple of weeks ?
