i’m debating changing my tumblr name in an effort to more universally rebrand myself.

hmmmmmmm

going on an all out social media hiatus.

no new poetry til the weekend.

byeeeee

(the cycle of black womanhood)

woman that bears womb.

wombs that bear bodies.

hearts that bear loss.

hands that bear labor.

eyes that bear witness.

souls that bear trouble.

minds that bear truth.

truth that bares freedom.

freedom that bares beauty.

beauty that bears woman.

woman that bears womb.

It was when I realized that for the girl I had once loved, forgetting me had become an act of self-care. I had become disrespect and selfishness and hate, and for her, self-love had become forgetting how to love me. I think that was the first time I had ever experienced self-resentment. I don’t know if I’ll ever forgive all of myself for it either; I suppose only time will tell.

#STAYHIP

(but it’s past your bedtime)

tell me, what is the

point of sleeping to then have

to see you in dreams?

what is the point of

waking up to remember

you’re no longer here?
