Maybe, I dunno. Just fucking tell him how you feel man.

So, I’ve been told a couple times now that this was a pretty blunt response. I, clearly, hold anon messages with some disregard. If you want to get into it, you can message me off anon to discuss it further, in private of course. Having had more time to consider it, I don’t think it’s fucked up to project that kind of thing on someone else’s words. That’s the beauty of a great book, or a piece of literature you connect to. Sometimes you feel the writer is inadvertently writing about your life, or that their story is based on you, or they make you feel that you wish things were the way they describe. Any reader will tell you the same. Consider me somewhat flattered that you find that kind of thing here.

ebola in dallas

destroyingpoetry:

i read that story in the newspaper
about the guy who has ebola in dallas
etcetera i think you’ve read it
it made me late for the elevator

it kind of freaked me out
since i live in new york and that is
not so many miles from dallas
and even if you think it is so many miles
it’s all the same country because texas
hasn’t seceded yet and even
if you think they will or should or
are so culturally rednecked and different
then first of all fuck you because my
liberal hippy grandparents live in houston
and second of all my liberal hippy grandparents
live in houston which is not
too many miles away from dallas
even if you have never left the town
where you grew up

of course now that there’s a man
with ebola in dallas
i can no longer talk about ebola
or think about ebola the way i would
the black plague in 13th century europe

i was born in america and furthermore
i was born an american and furthermore
i was born a middle class white girl
and america is invincible
to the problems of the third world and furthermore
i am invincible
bad things happen to people
but they do not happen to me
i am concerned about a boy that i’ve been kissing
and revising a script and applying
to college and yesterday
i thought that nobody in the whole world
had ever been colder than i was
after forgetting a jacket in october
i took a thirty minute shower
and the water made a prune out of me
i had a coke before my mother came home
out of a metallic red can the color
of lipstick or the color of a coke can
and i did not think about
how drinking a can of coke affects
the third world before it affects me
i did not think about everything
shriveling and the world ending
and even though i’m listing it
i’m still not thinking about it

i am afraid
i will tell you that

now that there is ebola in dallas
all the american scientists are really getting on it
i read a story that in liberia
they are pushing a no-touching policy
and read this one story about how this baby
had ebola and was coughing
and they told his mother not to pick him up
but the mother picked her baby up
and then the baby and the mother
and the whole rest of the family died
and of course she picked up her baby
how could she not pick up her baby?
i do not think this will happen to me
and you do not think it will happen to you
but what if i told you it’s happening in dallas 
and what if i told you that that baby was your
baby and you had to pick it up
and what if i told you that that baby was you
and that your mother wouldn’t pick you up
to hold you while you died
and what if i told you
that the world is going to end all at once
and what if i told you
that the world is going to end you first
and what if i told you it was me
that i was ending the world
that i was skimming the newspapers
and leaving the faucets on
and that in the midst of wanting no part
of the world ending
i had inadvertently pushed the button.

Always waiting
with open arms
at the bottom
of the bottle
your spread legs
intoxicate me
spiced, warm rum
upon my tongue
I never forget
the way you taste
or how it feels
when you’re gone
I always find you
and my greed
will consume
the both of us.

Anonymous said: What's so bad about Tony Abbott?

misandryblues:

oeroun:

oh, child. you’ve come to the right blogger.

this, is our current prime minister, tony abbott. image

he’s been in office for almost a year, now. in that time, he’s managed to piss a lot of people off. myself included. so what exactly makes him so bad?

1) he’s sexist
in regards to abortion, he’s asked “why isn’t it regarded as a national tragedy” rather than the declining life expectancy of aboriginals [x] and that it’s all about women taking “the easy way out”[x]. he’s even gone so far to say that women will never succeed more than men because “their aptitudes, abilities and interests are different for physiological reasons” [x]. let’s not forget that he thinks it’s not a woman’s right to refuse sex and that he believes it should be moderated [x]. did i mention he’s the women’s minister? [x] it’s not a joke. i wish.

2) he doesn’t like immigrants
he’s not a fan of immigrants and has been quoted saying such things as “jesus knew that there was a place for everything and it’s not necessarily everyone’s place to come to australia.” [x] let’s not forget, “i don’t think it’s a very christian thing to come in by the back door rather than the front door” [x]. you know, because there’s a queue for when you run for your life.

3) he think’s climate change is made up
he’s said (and god i wish i could make this up) “climate change is absolute crap” [x]. oh and he’s also made a comment on bushfire tragedies in australia saying “fire is a part of the australian experience” [x]. losing your home and family is definitely part of the australian experience, right tony?

4) he’s homophobic
when an 11 year old boy wrote to him about the rights of the gay community in regards to marriage and abbott wrote that he will continue to “support the existing definition of marriage”[x] not only does he refuse to take religious views out of the picture, but he wants to silence the gay community and has said “if you’d asked me for advice i would have said to have, adopt a sort of “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy about all of these things…”[x] he has also said “i probably feel a bit threatened (by homosexuality), as so many people do.”[x] yeah, and we feel threatened by you.

5) he upholds aboriginal stereotypes
about aboriginals, he’s said “there may not be a great job for them but whatever there is, they just have to do it, and if it’s picking up rubbish around the community, it just has to be done.”[x] let’s not forget that if an indigenous person can’t find work, they have no excuse because there are no “cultural excuses”[x]. oh and what does he think about the british invading australia and killing thousands of indigenous people? “western civilisation came to this country in 1788 and i’m proud of that… [x] good job.

6) his view on homelessness
"we just can’t stop people from being homeless if that’s their choice."[x] need i say more?

7) reduction of work rights
"compulsory paid maternity leave? over this government’s dead body, frankly"[x]

8) his way with words
what does he think about the crisis in syria? “it’s not goodies versus baddies, it’s baddies versus baddies”[x] what did he say when he posed closely with a group of teenage girl netballers? “a bit of body contact never hurt anyone”[x] how does he promote his campaign? “if you want to know who to vote for, i’m the guy with the not bad looking daughters”[x] his reaction to a dead australia soldier? “shit happens.”[x] i’ve saved the best/worst until last “no one, however smart, however well educated, however experienced, is the suppository of all wisdom.”[x] ew. let’s hope not.

there are about another thousand pieces of evidence i could use to explain why this man is bad for our country. like how his daughter has received an art scholarship that wasn’t known to other students before she received it [x], while he makes funding cuts to universities[x]. not to mention that when a radio listener called in to comment on how she managed to make ends meet because of his pension cuts by working on as a phone sex operator, he winked[x]. this guy is basically the scum of the earth.

and to close, i’ll leave you with this website. abbotisms is a site that showcases his best worst statements he’s been quoted saying. also, this video from john oliver’s “last week tonight” and it’s brilliant commentary on abbott’s stupidity and overall ignorance.

i hope we’ve all learnt something today.

Fire is a part of the Australian lifestyle

She’s a fire in my head
in burning I relinquish
I’m a moth, she’s the flame
I can not extinguish
I’m in love with her lust
and I play her games
her body is the drug
I abuse for the pain
break myself upon her
a wave against her sail
crucified, my broken heart
driving my own nails.

There’s a desperation
in the way I hold you
that I have no fear
of admitting to anyone
an urgency in how
I run my finger
along your jaw
and kiss you
we’re so close
we both could die
still, I hold you knowing
that one day you will.

"I am lonely, yet not everybody will do. I don’t know why, some people fill the gaps and others emphasize my loneliness."
Anaïs Nin (via danger)

(Source: durianquotes)

Hearts and minds
mean nothing to you
forget about their
ability to change
don’t be a mirror
or more than glass
for them to see
what they want to see
let them all think
that you’re the bad guy
don’t look away
just stare right back
and out the other side
let them come
and fall on your sword
king of the mountain
they’ll only see
what they want to see
as you push them
back where they belong.

Woah

well he really should have worn more protective clothing if he didn’t want that to happensounds to me like he was asking for it

Are we really sure he was actually shot and decapitated? Idk, sounds like something he would’ve made up. Guys make false decapitation accusations all the time, you know. 

If he didn’t want to be decapitated, he shouldn’t have worn a shirt that showed off his neck

I mean, not all woman decapitate people. I’m not like that.

Whatever, I mean, decapitations happen, it’s not a big deal. He should just get over it.

Me and my girls think decapitation jokes are hilarious.  And my bf doesn’t say anything so that means its cool…
