—I Will Follow You into the Dark

I Will Follow you into the Dark - Death Cab for Cutie

(Source: only-audio-tracks)

I’m grateful to have friends who i can talk to about everything and anything. They never feel awkward when asking about my father which is really really comforting. We have conversations from “what kind of violence would you inflict to bad people” from “I’ll teach you something about love”. My favorite thing is they know how to listen. Even if they’re really really tired from school works and especially when they’re drunk. It’s rare to find people like these during college. Good friends are important because they will shape you into the person you wanted to be. I had been surrounded by amazing people that deserved the words “i love you” an infinite amount of times more than some people ever did.

sadness is so strange, but as i grow older, i’m beginning to realize that we need it. happiness is important, of course it is, but i need my negative quiet days just as much as i need my optimistic days. i’m sad a lot of the time, actually, and i’m beginning to be okay with that. it’s who i am at…

He starts it off, as they always do, by saying,
“I still want to be friends” but I am already
on the next subway, the next taxi, the next whatever.
I am thinking about dinner that night, or the next night:
Angus beef, sauteed chicken, mahi mahi fish tacos.
I am thinking about the coffee pot and runner’s knee
and how much money I have in my savings. I am
thinking about hypothermia and missing bodies;
all the knives in my bed. I am thinking about how
the very word promise sounds more like an undoing.
I am thinking about the easiness of mouths.
How they open. How they give so much but also
about how they take away the things our minds
have committed to that permanent place of the brain,
where memories continue to rattle around long after
we’ve stopped shaking. I am thinking about how
he has turned me into a lake and I’ve never learned
how to swim. I am thinking about how I now have to
unlearn all of his secrets. Become a tourist to his body
again, blink against the hurt. I am thinking about
expensive hair cuts and retail therapy, dressing room
girls who are used to outlandish requests from customers.
I am thinking that this isn’t a dress my mother
would approve of, but honey, I look so good in red.

no but you don’t understand to have someone of a certain status completely own their sexuality and acknowledge the fact that it’s okay to be fluid and that labels are not absolute in areas where lbr the media doesn’t exactly excel at (bi/pan-erasure i’m looking at you) is such a big deal to me like UGH natasha negovanlis where have you been all my life

This is the scene where I cried so so hard, my eyes got swollen the next day. Hits so close to home.

There are certain films you just can’t get out of your head after you’ve watched it. In my case, it’s Milo Sogueco’s Mariquina. I don’t usually post reviews for films I’ve watched but this is an exception. This one took me by surprise, I thought it’s about a documentary about shoes in Marikina. I watched it with my sister so I was flaccid the whole time on the heavy parts, but the truth is, I want to cry. The cinematography is charming. The music matches the mood of the films ( I can’t find it tho). If I could watch it again and again I would.

When they tell you you are made of stars,
do not let them forget what stars are made of.
Stars are not glitter, not stickers on the ceiling,
not there for decoration.
Stars are chunks of collapsing galaxy. They are
hundred-thousand mile wide nuclear furnaces
that consume their surroundings into death.
They are not friendly; they do not exist
to write poems about. Stars
are not made of metaphors. You
are not made of other people’s words.

When they tell you you are made of stars.
look them in the eye and remind them
that so are they, and so is the earth,
and so is the gum on the bottom of your shoes,
and so is the fist you will hit them with
the next time they try to placate you
with their condescending bullshit –

When they tell you you are different from other girls,
ask them why you should want to be.
Do not let them call you dream girl.
Do not let them trap you up on a pedestal,
surrounded by books that cannot hurt them.
Read things that can hurt them.
Your mind is a forest richer than folklore;
do not let your curiosity be reduced to an accessory.
Your intelligence is not a fashion statement.
Your existence is not a novelty.
You are not a metaphor
for someone else’s problems.

When they tell you you are made of stars,
tell them you have always known this.
Tell them you have fire in your bone marrow,
that you are burning with the deaths
of the entire universe before you.

When they tell you you are made of stars,
tell them you know.
Tell them they should keep their distance.
