he now understands period cramps because i told him
you know when you have diarrhea and you can’t get to a bathroom and your stomach is cramping, you start sweating a little bit, you feel like you really are about to see the lord
only you can’t shit them out and you have to function normally the whole time
he looked so sympathetic after that
When you have been crying for so long that you can feel the heart ache in the back of your eyes and you want nothing more than to be able to close them forever
I wrote a poem about it, and then threw it away, because that’s the last thing I need right now: More words dedicated to people who will never dedicate a single thing to me.
