— Azra.T “My Heart is Full of Open Windows.” (via 5000letters)
Sometimes I have the wisdom of a 60 year old person and other times I can’t break out of my 2 year old thinking.
TGIF to what may have been the most horrid week of my quarter full of failure, life decisions, over promising and flaking, fish sticks for empty causes, dealing with bietches and hoez, etc etc. Shoutout to my brain for memorizing all my appointments, handling everything/everyone, and working overtime without a break. Going to retreat into my bed for the rest of the weekend, goodbye.
Waiting for the day your name won’t hold as much weight as it still does in my mouth. When I try to say it the words become anchored down. I never wanted love, you were a sea I jumped into before I learned to swim, so I drowned.
The thing about being a writer, even a retired one, is that I know I can make my words sting if I want it badly enough.
