I don’t want to sleep,
I want to pull your face down
from wherever you are
to the heat of my neck, to the
swell of the sea below my belly.

I want to kiss you before I sleep
and taste that salt on your lips.
—  Peregrine

Outfit inspired by Ransom Rigg’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

“I don’t mean to be rude,” I said, “but what are you people?”
“We’re peculiar,” he replied, sounding a bit puzzled. “Aren’t you?”
“I don’t know. I don’t think so”
“That’s a shame.”
