I am finally starting to
move like this body is
no longer being held
down by all its sad
stories; they made being
such a heavy thing.

It is a solemn burden,
thinking your only
belonging is in the
mangled ghosts of all
your worst days while
twisting into your side
the notion that you
have no use belonging
because of those very
same hauntings.

I was told only the
broken were interesting,
but asked to cover all
the raw rubble left
exposed from when
mornings still felt like
car crashes and my
name still stung like a
headline in my mouth.

He said “beautiful”
and I tasted metal.

It was the worst violence
I paid this body, keeping
all its pain unspoken.

Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission.

Do NOT out anyone.

Got it?


this is also a less important point, but still worth noting: DO NOT “come out” as an ally. don’t you dare.
