: ello friend i think what you write is beautiful and i would reblog but i hit post limit but I REALLY WANT TO SHOW MY APPRECIATION because it is. so. effing. wonderful. words are weird because they're just noises croaking out of a throat or etchings on a paper/screen but they can make you smile, laugh or both. i think what you write is amazing and you are amazing and just... yeah UwU
oh my god thank you!!! ; u ; it’s a really personal piece as you can probably tell so this means SO MUCH thank you wonderful person
When I fell in love for the first time
he was a man and I was fifteen and
fuzzy around the edges, solid only in mirrors
and in my head. And I realise now that it
had to be him because he was everything I
needed a man to be: miles away, alien,
uninterested in my fingers laced with his.
He was beautiful, don’t get me wrong, but he
looked better with someone else in his
arms in a candid shot in a celebrity mag
than he would have with me.
All the times afterward it was with women,
sometimes with girls. I still don’t know what
this says about me, or them, but at night I
feel as substantial as my reflection will have
me believe. My mirrors still tell lies now,
different ones, but this time I recognise them
for what they are. It aren’t really my lips that
I paint red now in what will never be Chanel,
but my soul. They say that beauty is only
skin-deep and they might be right
but I will fight to prove them wrong.
growing up was different from what they told me when I was twelve.
what are we if not creatures of the black?
i appreciate it thank you!!!

Anonymous: So, how do you write this amazing poetry? Is there a process? Any tips? :)
o h omg well
it depends, really. sometimes a good line just pops into my head and i write it down to use it later, wove poetry around it, or i have a general idea that i want to expand on (in the end i’ll never know what i’ll end up with). i like having some sort of plot twist or a line that the whole thing leads up to. something to ground it, something that has a meaning you want to convey.
i’m afraid this didn’t help much but that’s how i do it
Anonymous: This is probably a weird question but since I LOVE your poetry, especially the non-fandom stuff, I thought I'd ask. What program do you type your writing in?
thank you so much though i literally just answered your question on my main?? i use libreoffice but any writing program will do
