I feel like an hourglass; whole and empty at the same time.

silence

redeactivated:

so quiet here
the fields around are sleeping
the tapping of the keys on the keyboard
is as loud as the hammering of a sword to shape on an anvil
my breathing is as loud as the hissing of the blade annealing
the touching of your skin, it seems to me,
could be heard a thousand miles away
but it is just silence

Via Mermaid's Bite

My older brother received a call at two pm on a Thursday,
That his roommate from college
And best friend from high school;
Overdosed and died,
Last Wednesday night.

My brother is 25 years old.
He missed three days of work, sat at home in the dark,
And cried for the first time in six months.
This is not poetry.

My father is very, very sick.
He sleeps for seven hours,
To build up a half hour of strength,
Just so he can pick me up from school.
He hasn’t been well in over a year.
And still,
He prays every night, “Thank you God, for making this happen to me, and not my children.”

I am swallowed in fear,
That soon enough, he will go to bed,
And never wake up.
This is not poetry.

There are thousands of people,
fighting cancer,
and war,
and death,
just to have one more day,
In hopes that it will get better.

And still,
You people glorify sadness,
and long for your death,
because apparently life,
is just too much of a burden.
Wake up, your ignorance is sickening.
Your life is thousands of times more beautiful,
Than your death will be.

Found in 1873 near Solnhofen, Germany, this was the first fossil to show the complete wings of a pterosaur. Unearthed from a bed of limestone, this remarkably well-preserved skeleton belonged to Rhamphorhynchus muensteri, a long-tailed, dagger-toothed pterosaur from the Late Jurassic. The fine sediment fossilized not just the bones, but the tissues that formed the wing surface. The animal’s wings were partly folded, forming wrinkles that can still be seen.
See many more pterosaur fossils in the exhibition Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs, now open at the Museum.

And no one comes out the same
Love always leaves a mark
The scars give it all away
Burned in your heart
Love will leave a mark

I will tell you what I am feeling:
the back of my knee
desires your tongue, my earlobe
your teeth, my lips your teeth,
my nipples your lips,
my waist your palms, my clit
your rough chin,
my ass your fingers,
my shoulder blades your fingernails,
my feet your toes, my inner thighs
your hips, my heart
your eyes.
Sweet thing —
isn’t this
this poem what you’ve really wanted from the start.
