Just an observation

It’s strange to me, that I can experience something on a constant basis, and some people straight up don’t believe that’s even a thing. Like, anxiety when trying to fall asleep. Like, having the unprovoked urge to burst into tears. Like, having a conversation and ending it totally drained, emotionally and mentally. It’s strange howContinue reading “Just an observation”

How Heartstopper ripped apart my heart

If you don’t know what Heartstopper is, I have the unfortunate news that this article will not help you figure that out. Except for this one paragraph summary– Heartstopper: the Netflix show based on Alice Oseman’s graphic novels, featuring Nick and Charlie’s budding romance in a British boys school, and an ensemble cast of theirContinue reading “How Heartstopper ripped apart my heart”

Today’s queer poem is brought to you by:

A party. Neon lights. A search for self-worth. Witches and dead things and the moon. I wrote this poem (or poetic short story?) about the struggle to exist in this world. “Here is for all the queer people, me, you, us. For our frustration and heartbreak, for the permission to exist that isn’t granted, butContinue reading “Today’s queer poem is brought to you by:”

a poem about dysphoria

I thought I’d try out the WordPress monthly word prompt: BRIDGE. Between my skin and my mind I’ve carved a divide friction like sandpaper harrows my bones whenever skin and mind touch on the topic of voiceboxes and internal monologues spoken synchronously. dissonant screams dreams NO dise ngage repeat, dis engage

Wattpad what?

Hi peoples! I’m writing a novel on Wattpad. You can check it out here. It’s currently titled Kree Annihilators, and if “Kree” sounds familiar to you, you might be a Marvel fan. Surprise!

Today’s Prompt: How do you feel when you look at the stars?

Chapter 24 (comes to pieces)

I stalk away. I leave Skeleton Cook behind, because he has to fetch my cloak. I stalk down the street, ignore the curved one of dark green, I march to the hill.

Chapter 23 (how a battlefield)

The queen’s friend leaves the vase by the compartment where the glimmer insect jars are kept. Then she guides me to the exit, pulling a pair of mittens–one dark indigo, the other beige–from a hidden pocket. I don’t have mittens, so I ball my gray, dust-covered hands into fists and hope the guards don’t notice.
