I am afraid that my fathers
qualities are leaking into my chest.
I love a good book,
I got that from my mother.
But from my father I got his
unstable sleeping pattern and
his ability not to call back for
another three weeks.

Beloved parents, all of you,
may you never have to spend
your cigarette breaks speaking,
but not ever speaking.

Beloved parents, all of you,
may you wake up, come home
and go to bed happy;

until death do you part.

—  ”Parents.” - Jen.L

Just wanna live in a cute lil victorian cottage in a lil whimsical forest with over grown plants and just sit outside to hear the sounds of the earth and admire the moon on warm nights with someone I love and put my hand on their knee idk
