I know that, in theory, love is supposed to be soft.
I have felt soft love, before, but—
for the last two months, love has been
sledgehammer to my nervous system.
It keeps taking me out at the knees.
For the thousandth time, I remind myself
that want and need are two different things.
I remind myself,
to be needed is not love.
I kiss like a seed trying desperately
to put down roots in wet soil.
I keep trying to turn wild animal.
He keeps trying to make a home from my skeleton.
Neither of us is doing this the right way.
In spite of that, we keep crashing our bodies together:
expecting someone to catch us even when we’ve become
sticks of live dynamite.
I’ve done this song and dance before. I already know
I will let him turn me shelter
even while my roof is leaking.
I’ll put my mouth everywhere that hurts.
I’m good at it: unearthing my foundations
and giving them to other people.
It’s no wonder I have trouble standing on my own two feet.
It’s no wonder I’m so prone to slide downhill.
Even then, I still believe in a love that will meet me
at my own altar.
A love that patches the holes in the ceiling.
A love who comes, heart in hand,
and means it.

Some of these are very negative and, well, dark, so if you’re not one for this sort of thing, please proceed warily.
“She’s a saint with the lips of a sinner. She’s an angel with a devilish kiss.”
“If you don’t fight for what you love, you cry for what you lose.”

“Hell sent us the most evil disease, and we humans called it “love” “- Conny Cernik
“You know that place between asleep and awake; that place where you can still remember dreaming? That’s where I will always love you. That’s where I will be waiting.” - Peter Pan
“But my dreams aren’t as empty as my conscience seems, to be. I have hours; only lonely. My love is vengeance that’s never free.”
“They told me not to play with fire, and I should’ve listened because I got burned by your soul and you left me in the ashes.”

“He saw the darkness in her beauty. She saw the beauty in his darkness.”
“I don’t really get why everything has to end. Nothing can be perfect but instead of quitting, People should try to fix their problems instead of leaving. Love is a really wonderful feeling but most people don’t know the real meaning.”

“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.” - Mary Oliver
my mom watches her shows in the family room of our house where everyone is always hanging out and sometimes theres a (hetero) sex scene in whatever she’s watching and no matter how explicit or non explicit it is no one cares. its not a big deal. i mean its a little weird sometimes to just listen to really bad moaning for a solid minute but its not like she changes the channel or anything its just part of the show.
but me? i flinch when i’m watching two girls on my laptop and someone walks by or enters the room. not sex with two girls just. two girls. thats all. i pause the video and i wait for them to leave, my heart beating really fast. im not even in the closet. if the girls kiss i feel like i have to hide my screen and make sure no one saw i was watching that.
A spell for when an abuser finds a new partner to victimize
Sometimes your abusive ex finds a new partner to torment, or maybe a friend has gotten into an abusive relationship. You may be worried about their safety and emotional wellbeing and you don’t think this relationship is for the best. So here’s a spell to break them the fuck up.
- A pink candle
- Representations of the Elements
- Dried roses or a single rose, preferably red
- Pink embroidery floss or thread
- Colored pencils or markers
- Some kind of oil (i used vegetable oil)
- Fireproof Dish
- A representation of a deity
- Fire Salt (It can give your spell an extra kick)
- Mortar and pestle for grinding your roses, but crumbling them in your hands works well too!
Perform at night (I performed it at midnight on Valentines Day).
Cleanse yourself and meditate on really cleansing your aura. You can put protection sigils on your body and tie a white ribbon around your dominant hand for extra protection.
Cleanse your space and materials in whichever way you’d like and set it up with all your materials within reach. Double check you have everything so you’re not getting up in the middle of the ritual. Set up your space in whatever way makes you feel the most comfortable and safe.
Ground yourself. This is super important to do thoroughly so don’t rush it.
Cast a circle, if you’re into that. You can verbally state an intention as well, such as:
Negative energies and entities are not allowed to come into this circle/space/whatever.
Invoke the elements and welcome any spirits/deities you work with. Ask them to watch over you and protect you during this spell. If you’re like me, you can sprinkle some fire salt onto the fire candle and ask the element of fire to especially protect and help you with your task.
State your intention aloud. It can be something like: My intention is for [Abusers first and last name] and [Their new partners first and last name] to break up forever. They deserve to break up because [Abuser] is toxic and shouldn’t be with anyone, especially someone nice like [New Partner].
Make 2 Paper Poppets representing the two people you want to break up, draw some clothing on them and their full names on the back (as well as instagram handles, tumblr handles, anything to really get a tag lock on them). Really connect the person to the poppet, meditate on it for a bit, think of all their attributes and qualities.
Draw a heart on each of the poppets with red pencil, thread the embroidery floss through the hearts connecting the two poppets. Say:
This is the connection the two of you share. It holds all the happiness, romance, friendship, and love you feel for each other. It is strong. Think about the connection these two people share.
Gather a handful of dried roses, grind them in a mortar and pestle or with your hands, infuse them with your curses energy. Say:
A Rose by any other name, would smell as sweet. But [Abusers first and last name] and [New Partners first and last name] relationship is obsolete. All burned up, only ashes remain. [Abuser] and [New Partner] will never be together again. Put them in the fireproof dish, burn the roses until they’re ashes.
Hold the candle in your hands, engrave their names into the candle with the needle and add a heart (Abuser+Partner ♡). Say:
Element of Fire I call upon you, burn up the bond between these two. Before [Abuser] can hurt [New Partner], make their bond turn into ashes. Infuse the candle with your energy. Think of why their bond needs to be broken. Really take the time to pour your energy into it. Dress the candle in oil and roll it in the ashes of the roses. Add a little bit of fire salt onto your candle and light it.
Hold the poppets in your hands with the pink cord over the candle flame. Say:
[Abuser] and [New Partner], on this romantic day, Your feelings of like and love begin to dissipate The things you loved about each other you now hate [Abusers] ugly side is all you see [New Partner] you know in your heart you need to leave Repeat the last line until you feel its really sunk in.
Burn the connection between the two poppets. Visualize the new partner leaving the abuser. Picture them walking away from each other, never to meet again. Say: The connection between you two burns away You’re bond is forever broken You break up, for ever and ever [Abuser] and [New Partner] never get back together Because [New Partner] deserves better
Close your spell however you like. Say goodbye to the elements, deities or spirits. Close your circle. Put away all your materials. Cleanse your space again. Cleanse yourself again. Drink water. Eat food. Calm down.
Dispose of the poppets far away from each other.
You may want to perform a binding on the abuser so they can’t abuse others in the future and a protection spell for the partner so this doesn’t happen to them again.
Note: This isn’t some petty break up spell, only use it when you are genuinely concerned about the new partners safety and well being.
A revenge spell for someone who hurt you to the point of breaking your soul and draining your light. Inspired by the song “Tell That Devil” by the Nashville Cast/Jill Andrews. This was designed with a specific person in mind, change it however you see fit.
3 black candles
A pinch of pepper seeds (hot peppers preferably)
A piece of a fallen hornet’s nest (can usually be found on the ground in autumn)
1 rusty nail
1 piece of paper
1 writing utensil
1 small vial
Something to place burning paper safely
A spot of ground that the sunlight doesn’t touch
1. Write the victim’s name on the piece of paper. Place the seeds and hornet’s nest on the paper and fold it up as best you can. Light the three candles.
2. Begin reciting the incantation:
“You broke my soul, you poisoned my light, you blackened my heart. Now you will pay. [Victim’s name], I curse you and send you back to hell. I ask of the devil that he receive you. Feel the pain you have forced upon me tenfold. You will suffer for your evil-doings…”
3. Thrust the rusty nail into the folded paper as many times as you like, just make sure nothing falls out.
“… Feel the coffin nails pierce you…”
4. Light the folded paper on fire with the flames of the candles.
“… Feel the hellfire on your skin…”
5. Place the burning paper in the holder and wait until it is ash. Collect the ashes into the vial. Seal the vial and bury it in the spot of ground you’ve chosen that is never touched by sunlight.
“… And now I bury you in the ground, see you in hell.”
“So, does this mean I don’t have to pay back the 20 bucks I owe you?” “It was 200 bucks.” “Brand spanking new hand, or brand new ‘spanking’ hand!” “I’m not dead, you dumb bastard.” “Oh wow, that was weird. You were really still for a minute.” “You mind telling me what the Flying Dutchman is going on?” “We’re course correcting. Rebuilding the family you tore apart.” “Oh here’s a question, if we had sex right now would it still be a threesome, cause technically you’re both the same person?” “No one escapes their destiny, ____.” “Don’t you worry my little burrito, you’re safe in this trunk.” “Nothing helps, does it?” “Of course you don’t answer. Because you’re DEAD.” “You’re both dirty birds, and I’m gonna hurt you, real, real bad.” “Yes, I’m upset. Yes, I’m behind the wheel. Yes I’m drunk, and maybe my
license isn’t the fancy kind from the DMV, but at least I’m drunk!” “Okay, I’ve seen some seriously disturbing stuff recently, but you are adorable.” “Sorry ____, you played right into my hand.” “Sorry ____. Sorry you got caught up in this bullshit.” “Keeping my end of the deal is boring. It’s more fun to change things up at the last minute. Keeps Everyone on their toes!” “What the Fraggle Rock is THAT thing?!” “My children stole my immortality.” “I’m gonna find him, take my chain saw, shove it right up his ass.” “Yeah, that’s like a felony.” “That is horrible, and also awesome.” “Holy pickle dicks!” “You’ve got some huge balls showing yourself in this town.” “You! You ruined my life!” “I’ve ruined a lot of peoples’ lives.” “Oh, _____. Do you really think I want you and your little friends to die?” “Man, making decisions is hard.” “You say one more dumb thing… “ “I’m gonna say a lot of dumb things!” “Everybody dies here, it’s just the rules.” “What’s out there knows you’re alive, and it wants you to be un-alive.” “You think THIS is the right time to be hitting on me?!” “Shoot first, think later. Or don’t think at all. Yeah! Shoot first think never!’ “Oh, I’ll be polite. Right up until I’m rude.”
imagine if in until dawn josh’s saw trap prank goes wrong and the tracks accidentally go towards ashley. then josh runs out from behind the wall and grabs ashley by her feet and holds her above the saw, and its just buzzing beneath her. shes hysterically crying, chris is screaming “wtf” and josh is just panicking, telling chris to “turn it off”, and the room is just filled with everyone all yelling at the same time
