YO SO THE SCENE IN CAP 2 WHERE STEVE AND NAT ARE AT CAMP LEHIGH AND THE PLACE GETS BOMBED SKY HIGH WITH THEM INSIDE WAS ORIGINALLY INTER CUT WITH STEVE’S MEMORIES OF CRASHING THE VALKYRIE I WANT TO DIE THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE

cap 2 could have fucked me up even more than it already did: the blog

i've found my new celebratory reaction gif

James Monroe Iglehart at the Tonys

think about it…

when you pass that test that you didn’t study for

when you book that job interview

when you drop your phone and the screen doesn’t break

when there’s more food in the fridge than you thought

when you check your available balance and it’s not negative

when you win a tony award

I’m legit crying #teaminternet

There’s a woman in me who drinks poison
like water, thinks it’s what she needs
to stay alive. I wish she’d learn to savor
water’s plain taste, enjoy quench and calm.
But give her hurricane and drowned
peony blooms and she smiles, raises
her face to the rain and says, Hit me.

I can’t stand feeling wind on my skin
because it’s not your hands.

I don’t know how not to hand you
the match, how not to let you strike it
and light this house on fire, how not
to relish disappearing into ash,
my bones crumbled, an exploded
plum all that’s left of my heart.

The ground that is not true
ground but spindled grief.

After you’ve swum in the ocean, felt
the current, wave-crash, and depth
that goes deeper, deeper, and darker,
to choose a lake, with its smooth
and silt, no matter how fresh the water,
how relieved the skin to be rid of
the salt’s sting, is to ignore the hunger
of the man brave enough to love the sea.

—  Marie-Elizabeth Mali, “On Being Left”
