the fact that a girl being a feminist is a turn off to a lot of guys is just further proof that sexism exists they’re literally saying they don’t want a girl who requires respect because that’s just no fun
Of knowing the truest definition of “heart in my throat”, of screaming invisible daggers into the air attacking everyone but the one who deserves it. Two months of clawing at my own heart, getting in my own way, dragging myself down the high road. Fuck the high road. Two months feels like two years when you’re a boldface message in the sky and I’m a faded traffic sign. You’ve bleached out my laughter, stolen joy from even those purely joyful moments, for two months. I hope a degree in a cheap frame can soothe that calloused heart, fill the cracks I broke myself trying to fill. For two months, you ran me, and now I’m running you out.
I’m taking that shot if I damn well want to. The high road? Every back alley, avenue, side street, boulevard: mine. I’ll build a new home in my own heart, no rentals. You may as well board up that spot in your soul, cause I’m the only one who could even survive there & you sure as hell will know it.
Because I might be broken, and it might have been two months of silent agony crumbling behind the movie set. But I’ll persist, and struggle, and triumph, because when you look for the light you will always find it. I’m done with the past and the future doesn’t exist, so all that light can be focused upon the present.
