    Cruelty is not just a starving animal or an abused child. Cruelty is a week without food because “I must be pretty.” Cruelty is wrapped in every curvature of the word ‘Beautiful.’ Cruelty is a sharp blade cut through ivory skin. Cruelty is the derogatory look given in the halls of a ...

    Maybe things don’t happen for a reason. Maybe we’re just grasping for ways to make sense of the chaos around us. Maybe we’re giving meaning to things that have no meaning. Maybe we’re clinging to hope so hard that we forget about reality. What if we’re wrong and nothing is meant to...

    Sadness is not beautiful. A bloodstained bathtub is not art. Self-hatred will not make you seem intelligent, or mysterious, or burdened with great emotional death. It will bury you. Suffocate you. It will wring your bones dry and fill your lungs with sand. and I know that the world is a...

    A box under the kitchen sink. Where two hundred years ago a garden used to be. A box full of bones, missing a spine. no story, no note. A box full of bones featuring a necklace and lies. I trusted him for the purpose of love, he pretended to love me, for the purpose of science....

    It is the skip of a shiver that makes even the smallest of hairs jump along the spine of your back. It is a flood of tears pouring from even the deepest parts of your battered soul. It is the color of your heart after losing the one you love most, morphing into nothing but a cold, shapeless stone. I...

    My head is full of words but I cant bring myself to speak. You call me these things and say it’s my fault. But you are the one who created me. My entire being is because of you, you raised me. You made me this way. So don’t blame me, when I burn your world to the ground, and you ask ...

    My head is in the clouds But I cant find my feet. My words are running out but I cant seem to stop talking. Because we live in a world where I love you means nothing and goodbye means everything and people you know become people you knew....
