    “I hope you all find yourselves sleeping with someone you love, maybe not all of the time, but a lot of the time. The touch of a foot in the night is sincere. I hope you like your work, I hope there’s mystery and poetry in your life — not even poems, but patterns. I hope you can see them. Often those patterns will wake you up, and you will know that you are alive, again and again.”

    —  Eileen Myles, The Importance of Being Iceland

    being known is being loved

    "i know your pizza order" "you have freckles on your ears" "you make this face when you're tired" "you order green tea on a good day black on a bad day" "you always make that face before you try something" "the tips of your ears turn red when you're angry" "i knew you'd say something" "you must be exhausted to miss the class" "your favorite pie is pumpkin, right?" "i know your phone number, don't worry" "you miss me, i can tell" "you fiddle with your pens when you're bored" "you don't like converse unless they're high tops" "your favorite cereal is cinnamon toast crunch and you first ate it when you were 8"

    being known is being loved.

    i would rather say "i love you" too much than too little, yk? i would rather yell "i love you" across a parking lot at 8:40 pm than to quietly go home, i would rather scream at my friends that "i love you" before i turn a corner, i would rather live in a world where my friends yell "i love you" back at the top of their lungs because life is so insufferably long but its also so so so short and i just. i would rather tell my people that i love them a ridiculous amount than have them not know,


    i am BACK ON MY BULLSHIT!!!! What i believe is a disturbingly accurate representation not only of the tumblr music scene circa 2015, but also of our middle/high school deepest wants and desires…
