Anonymous asked: can you link me to the spoken word video where this is from :"heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street" please?

That other anon meant my header “YOU ARE NOT A CIRCUS”, which is from a poem of mine called “Funny Girl”. The poem you’re referring to is just a poem, not a spoken word, as far as I know. It’s called “Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell” and you can read it here.

Anonymous asked: What do you do when your home leaves you?

Take yourself by the shoulders. Look yourself in the eyes. Speak gently and firmly. Say “HOME IS IN YOU. NO ONE CAN TAKE IT WITH THEM. YOU HAVE THE GENTLE HANDS. YOU SAY WHEN. YOU SAY STAY.”

Anonymous asked: i wish i could know you and love you, but i realize that what i know of you is merely the surface, and i would be ill-prepared for what lies underneath. just know that i wish i could love you the way you deserve to be loved.

You are wonderful, thank you. I’m sure it’d be amazing to hold your hand for a while.

❝ I mean, I hope you’re happy,
But the sky is still the sky without you,
And I’m not surprised by that anymore. ❞

❝ There’s usually a boy. Sometimes
not. Either way, there’s someone
and they’ve hurt me.
There’s someone and they don’t
love me back,
because that’s what I want. That’s
my poetry. ❞
