  • "Do you want me to wrench myself around and tear myself in two because you can’t make up your mind? Because you won’t stay with anything?"

    I wish I was strong enough to fight off the demons in my head when they tell me that I’m better off dead."
    "Save me from myself." -t.e.k. (via ourhearts-onpaper)

  • "I’ve etched our love story into your neck with my mouth, written poems down your back with my fingertips.

    I kissed my goodbye letter on the inside of your thigh - ‘We fell in love against the summer sun, but I refuse to watch us die with the leaves.’"
    you always liked my writing | S.B. (via fallinlovewithapoet)

    Because when I was 13 years old, I was sent home for my tank top straps being a little too thin, but a boy could wear a Cool Story babe, Go Make Me A Sandwich shirt and not be looked at twice.

    Because when I was 17 and I told a guy “No” and the next day the word tease was painted on my locker.

    Because when I was 18 and just wanted to be friends, I was a bitch.

    Because I feel the need to say “I have a boyfriend” instead of “No” because guys respect other men more than they would ever respect me.

    Because society screams “don’t get raped” instead of “don’t rape”

    Because I am scared to walk alone at 10 PM

    Because being beautiful is the most important thing I’ll ever do.

    Because when I wear my favorite skirt “I’m asking for it”

    Because the song Blurred Lines exists

    Because no means no no matter how you fucking spin it

    Because a girl was drugged and raped with a beer bottle, and the boys who did it are out on bail.

    Because I owe you nothing

    Because pepper spray is a gift I receive yearly.

    Because I am asked if I have a boyfriend more than I am asked about my mental health

    Because my clothes say more about my consent then my mouth does.

    Because the wage gap exists

    Because “not all men are like that” is said way too often


    Because I feel the need to say “I’m not a feminist but…”

    Because I’m writing this fucking piece

    When you ask why I’m angry? (via brennanat)
