everything chastity / 11.30.2021
a pastor’s son i used to love once told me how his father would never allow himself alone with women in a room. i cannot read the bible now without feeling phantom tugs at the skin between my legs. things that never happened but could’ve. i wonder how much i will never know about the people i know no longer, if i’ll keep reaching out to grab information that isn’t there. a sick dog waiting at the door for owners that will never come back.
this is what you’ve done to me: i cannot get dressed without letting my fingers hit my thighs, drumming beats onto my flesh of a million different ways to trip up a man and punish a child and hide the skirts i don’t want you to see. i dye my hair unnatural colors and repierce the backs of my ears with a rusted needle. i play god by ripping my own jeans and pages of books i can’t unread. i wait for someone to touch me and then bark until they leave. it is easy to hate abstinence but harder to leave it.
this is everything chastity. this is the sort of bitterness you can throw but never shake. a dog knowing their bone is harmless but fearing it too much to take.

It's really sad how we always focus on being independent, while independence is an important thing we should also learn to lean on people because we need them. We need people, we need their support and reaching out to people is something that should be encouraged rather than looked down upon.

death is an unwelcome guest tonight
I can feel its eyes on my chest
piercing through my heart
looking for love, for weakness, for love,
tailoring the heavy coat of grief
it's an oversized fit
my love has always been too big for my bones
will I collapse under it's heavy weight?
will I wear it like a crown
as if to prove to myself
that I have carried someone's heart in my hands
and kept it safe till it's last beat?
as if to prove to others
that that last beat
taught me why
comets were named after people

The end of ADHD awareness month is
coming near. So let me tell you what
ADHD has done to me.
It's not just fidgeting.
It's not just trouble focusing.
For me, it's not even hyperactivity.
ADHD makes my brain late.
To everything.
ADHD effects my everyday life.
It has made me depressed.
I have difficulty maintaining relationships.
Because of executive dysfunction, some
days I don't get out of bed.
Chronic unemployment.
I forget to pay bills.
I can't focus. Even with no distractions.
Just can't focus.
Hyperfixations.
Obsessions.
All or nothing thinking. Black and white.
Mood swings of the worst kind.
Unintentionally scaring my loved ones.
Choice paralysis.
I can't make up my mind.
I can't decide.
I'm not confident in any decision I make.
I have poor sense of time.
My emotional regulation is almost absent.
I can’t stick to one task.
always look like I'm not listening.
Even though I'm always listening.
Even though I care what you're saying.
I'm listening. I swear.
I can't focus on anything.
Not even things I'm interested in.
I want to read this book I'm interested in.
I can't get past the first page.
The words make no sense.
I can't understand what they mean.
I forget to eat.
I forget to go to the bathroom.
Sometimes I even forget to sleep.
I'm always tired.
Always. Tired.
It's not just fidgeting. It's not just trouble
focusing.
It's debilitating.
If you can relate, offer yourself some grace.
Medication and therapy can help.
But your brain will always be different.
Because we are wired differently.
It's not all bad. We just have too much
attention.
It's not a deficit. It's too much attention
with no idea where to put it.
Hang in there.
You're not lazy.
You're not a bum.
You're different. Like me. Like many of us.
