owls are love

Finished!!! OMG I love it so much. It’s a piece I designed but the wonderful tattoo artist Christopher at Mi Vida Loca Ink perfected. The script is Latin “verba volant, scripta manent” which translated means spoken words fly away; written words remain. My writers creed 😍

The animal guides are of course the Raven, wolf and owl - and I can go in depth explanation in a another post. There’s also a bear claw at the end of the script: a symbol of strength and gentleness.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
I wish I could write angry, ‘moving on’ words that scream ‘fuck you’ into the wind
I wish I could be angry
I wish I could fight, call my sense back to me and listen to the words I give to others
I wish I had rage flowing through my blood instead of this bittersweet sadness rotting at my boness
