love is big lines
love is terrible aches
love is tall people with their heads down
or the smell of something burning
my eyes tracing a line through the air
love is two deep claw marks in a cloud
a very wide pool of motor oil
a bunch of colors, all of them black
love is you and me swelling like sea lions
or two citrus fruits
rinds set to pop, navels swaying, juice in the corner
go ahead, lick the tip, blow a kiss
crash your plane
love is you in a doorway asking me to leave
love is okay, i’ll go soon
love is you’re right, i’ll go now

Bound for trouble from the start
I’ve been walking through this old world in the dark
All along right by my side
There you were shining, my ray of light

I sing lover come back, lover come back to me
Won’t you ever come back, ever come back to me
How could I have been so foolish to let you leave
Lover come back, lover come back to me

I’ll never be as good as I’d like to be
Eternally restless refusing to believe
But I think that we missed our connection
I wanted to feel your affection
Until my final days

I sing lover come back, lover come back to me
Won’t you ever come back, ever come back to me
How could I have been so foolish to let you leave
Lover come back, lover come back to me

I am warm enough yet I still shiver
I am fed but still I starve
You know me I am the great misgiver
Always waiting on the clouds to part

I sing lover come back, lover come back to me
Won’t you ever come back back, ever come back to me
How could I have been so foolish to let you leave
So lover come back, lover come back to me

Lover come back, lover come back to me
Won’t you ever come back, ever come back to me
How could I have been so foolish to let you leave
So lover come back, lover come back to me

Sooo, have you seen Carol? Or the trailer for Carol? Best movie I’ve ever seen, probably. Oof. It’ll leave you an emotional wreck in all the best ways. Immediately after I saw it I wrote this song, and with the help of tittymalaysia it’s now a sad puddle of feelings that you can listen to. There are mild spoilers in the song, but it focuses on the tone of the movie rather than on details from it sooooo use your best judgement. 

The song is split narrative; first verse is from Carol’s, second verse is from Therese’s, choruses are from both of them, and the bridge is split between them as well. Basically, anything I sing is from Carol’s perspective and anything Jaymes sings is from Therese’s. I’ll put the lyrics under the cut. 

Thanks for listening, I really appreciate it :D

A Big Sister's Hunt for a Glove That Fits

This next post is a personal one.

    My younger sister has radial dysplasia which has resulted in the loss of her (barely ever in existence) thumb on her right hand, among other things. Radial dysplasia, also called radial club hand, is a congenital condition that results in a shortened forearm and deviation of the wrist. She was born without a bone in her thumb, and after many surgeries and more hours of physical and occupational therapy than anyone should clock before the age of 5, she was left with four semi-functional fingers, a splint to straighten out her wrist, and a future of personal pain as a result of bullying and self-doubt. Long story short, kids can be mean. Very mean. But Jackie is a trooper—more like a badass—and at 17 and a half (that half is still very important!), she is one of the strongest, smartest, most beautiful people I know.
