orange decorating

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

feminist hoop art by femmebroidery

i’m majorly crushing on this embroidery hoop art — the feminist script, the lovely floral design, all of it.

“It is polite to point with arrows that visually expand a room, as these do by emphasizing horizontal lines. The decoration is the focus of the room and decoratively integrates it.”
