For @overwatchers

We’re sitting around a circle talking about the worst thing we’ve ever done.
When it’s my turn to tell the story- I lie.
I don’t tell them about your 60 missed calls and the 12 text messages in which you begged me to fight for love as much as you were willing to die for it.
I don’t tell them that I kissed your bestfriend a week after I asked you to never call again or that when you found out, you didn’t hear it from me. I forget to tell the part where you lose who you are over me for some time. How you pick up your old habits. How you started drinking on the weekends and how they turned to weekdays. I don’t even tell them that I never apologized and I don’t talk about how I never looked back. I skip the part where you swore to yourself that you’d never love anyone else like me because it’s not the kind of story I want to tell.
Because when they ask me about the worst thing I have ever done, it always comes back to you.
I wonder how you’re doing and if maybe you’ve found it in yourself to forgive me.
When they ask me about the worst thing I’ve ever done, I spare the time of the details. I jump to the biggest thing, I tell them that I wasn’t deserving of a love like that. That I destroyed the one person who loved me above anything else. I tell them that you set the world on fire for me and I looked the other way.

whenever i dive into the hereditary witch or traditional witch tag to find new perspectives or ideas so much of it is filled with the usual “ew emoji spells and new age stuff is so fake ugh tumblr witchcraft is so weak and watered down and lacking bc none of these people were born into it, yall are just here for the aesthetic” and i want to fucking scream??? then leave ho, no one’s keeping you or your misplaced superiority here

I love biteys post about people calling everything the new onceler bc ppl are like “ugh Tumblr loves skinny white boys 😒” in the notes but iirc it was originally talking about prince Sidon, an eight foot tall shark furry

I want you to fall so deeply in love with me that you slam down on concrete and realize that everything you’ve ever felt before has been a lie

Rating went up again!!!!

I see how his face lights up every time he sees me
And he smirks at me with a twinkle in his eyes
And I feel the longing every time we hug
And when he grabs me by the hips and pulls me to him it feels like lightning
And every touch between us is secret
And each glance lingers knowingly
And when he wraps his arms around me it feels like home
And when we steal kisses its gentle
And it’s hungry
Like we forgot how to breathe
And this is the only way to stay alive.
But we’re just friends
And oh my god I just want the day to come
When our secret is out
And you call me yours
—  But we’re “Just friends”
excuses

Maybe we all simply need excuses-
cigarettes and hash and for me, even sugar rushes-
that sort of take away our filter
remove the barrier
that seperates the small talk
from things we’re dying to utter
secrets that haunt us at 4 am
replaying in our heads like broken records
and once we’ve let them slip
so easily from between our lips
we pin and point and blame
trying so hard to justify
those fleeting instances that leave us with guilt
that force us to face
the simple fact that
we may not be as brave
as we try to pretend

1. Remind yourself that the universe doesn’t always cry when things fall apart because the sound of breaking isn’t always bad.

2. This time around, you do you because you’ve spent too many years making sacrifices for the people you love and tend to forget yourself way too often.

3. Do not ever be sorry for being an exclamation point or a parenthetical phrase.

4. You are not allowed to call yourself an accident because scientists have hypothesized that the moon was caused by an accidental collision between Earth and Mars, yet it still roars when all light has been swallowed up.

5. Don’t ever settle for someone who forgets that leaving things better than the way you found them is not just a basic etiquette rule. They’ll be the first to leave you shipwrecked on far too familiar shores.

6. Give second chances – even to the people who’ve never given you a first.

7. Celebrate yourself as much as you celebrate others. Call yourself worthy; call yourself wonderful.
