bruised-bodies

And the only solution was to stand and fight,
And my body was bruised and
I was set alight,
But you came over me like some holy rite,
And although I was burning,
You’re the only light
Only if for a night

PLEASE DON’T REPOST!
I couldn’t decide which framing I liked more, so I post both. IT’S FINALLY DONE. I’m still not really satisfied with that piece, but it’s prolly because I’m tired af and basically I’m never satisfied with my work. 

Anyway, I wanted to draw badass, fearless Alex. So here she is, ready to kick your weak ass. The nosebleed she got after you punched her in the face? Pfft, it’s nothing, she has been through worse.

it’s hard every day to try and accept my appearance; that difficulty increases when it looks like you don’t know how to apply cosmetics (which is accurate for me). trying to get through all of the dirty looks. trying to feel okay. i’m incredibly adorable, compassionate, dedicated, invested and perfect. i’ve got this.

Tell me what your worst fears are. I bet they look a lot like mine.
Tell me what you think about when you can’t fall asleep at night.
Tell me that you’re struggling. Tell me that you’re scared. No,
Tell me that you’re terrified of life.
Tell me that it’s difficult to not think of death sometimes.

Tell me that you’re struggling. Tell me that you’re scared. No,
Tell me that you’re terrified of life.

Tell me how you lost. Tell me how he left. Tell me how she left.
Tell me how you lost everything that you had.
Tell me that it ain’t ever coming back.
Tell me about God. Tell me about love.
Tell me that it’s all of the above.
Say you think of everything in fear.
I bet you’re not the only one does.

Everyone in the world comes at some point to suffering.
I wonder when I will. I wonder.
Everyone is out searching for someone or something.
I wonder what I’ll find. I wonder.
