oh jesus I just turned 18. I welcome myself to the gates of hell aka adulthood.
this is an appreciation post for the 100+ blogs I followed since that tragic deactivation of my account last year. because I was drunk and. well. shit happens. those were the good times. anyway, thank you for making my dash as aesthetic as Francis Abernathy. this is not in alphabetical order so I hope to God I tagged you all.
“I love you, even if there isn’t any me, or any love, or even any life. I love you.” — Zelda Fitzgerald
The struggle of literature is in fact a struggle to escape from the confines of language; it stretches out from the utmost limits of what can be said; what stirs literature is the call and attraction of what is not in the dictionary.
It is summer.
I am coyote mouth,
biting a past-me until
it disappears into the lake.
And all the knives I’ve lapped up come spilling out of me like teeth.
And I can’t remember January
just my mothers hands
touching my face.
there’s a ghost roaming the streets of my house it has hands like mine beaming and
empty at the same time it’s face is cheap satin body is ocean waves to keep it moving and beating in an endless way dreaming of blood pooling in its chest like a mothers arms wrapped around like a noose dragging a heart around feels like deer skin still warm when you touch on it feels like a past me like a dream that i awoke from where my body is a house on fire
and my hands are gone
Hey! I wrote a somewhat comprehensive list a few months ago of blogs that I admire that you can find in my blog recs tag (/tagged/blog+recs). Granted, it can use an update, as I missed a few blogs at the time that I wrote it, but it is still a solid list nonetheless.
However, I would say that my current top five are as follows:
@soracities: I don’t think that Mim will ever not be within my top five because we have been friends for a long time and she is an absolute sweetheart. Solid aesthetic blog, excellent taste in poetry and literature.
@malglories: Possibly my favorite blog aesthetically, with elegant, but wonderfully morbid taste.
@luthienne: Wonderful, wonderful literature blog and Kelly is lovely.
Can you recommend me some blogs with a similar aesthetic as yours? x
This isn’t the first time that I’ve gotten this message recently, so I think that I will just make a brief (well, somewhat brief) list of various blogs that I like in different categories as I see fit, as my blog is a sort of combination of aesthetics. c:
