Requested by anonymous about a girl who doesn’t feel and a boy who is trying to fix her
"I have been taught to spend
my life acting the way people
expect me to. I have grown
up learning to apologize for
everything I feel. Sometimes
that means putting my mind
five steps in front of my
heart and forcing it to follow.
Sometimes that means
ignoring my feelings that
are all over the place."

- wtm, growing up and learning how

Anoniem: What are your favorite poetry/writing blogs?

I absolutely love inkskinned, alonesome, 5000letters, rustyvoices, anneisrestless, extrasad and towritepoems. I always check their blogs in the morning and it’s my favorite part of the day.

Ten word poem

Whenever I go through my blog I always realise that my writing has changed a lot, but my feelings haven’t at all and I end up feeling sad and disappointed in myself

Anoniem: Things will get better eventually. I know it doesn't feel like it, but they will. Don't lose hope.

Thank you, lovely. I really appreciate your message and I will keep trying. I hope you’re well ❤

"I leave parts of myself on pages
from my notebook and on the
bathroom floor and in the words
that offer you a second chance.
I slowly rip myself apart until
there’s nothing left to remind me
of what happened before. But
some nights I still choose to be
weak and I bury myself in all the
poems I should have burned a
long time ago. Somehow no one
has ever asked about the blood
dripping from my fingers. No one
ever cared enough to notice the
stories written on my skin."

- wtm, I can’t leave it behind and no one cares

"There’s nothing harder
than putting yourself back
together every morning."

- wtm, ten word poem

"I am a constant pain in
the back. I am a third,
fourth, fifth choice and
the one that’s always a
regret. I am the light that
gets turned off before
it shows too much truth.
I am the abandoned place
where people find lost
words, but never any

- wtm, there’s nothing to stick around for
