"

I like the weight of my bones
that felt so impeding,
that I once wished away.

I like the blood in my veins
I no longer sacrifice
curved blue rivers.

I like where I am
without you.
I like the taste of survival.

"
- Michelle K., Today I Turned 22 and Decided to Really Live. (via michellekpoems)

someothertomorrow:

I always thought
That anger was
The sound of slamming doors
And shattering plates.

I took this truth and wrote
It to lose its impact.

No one told me
Rage could be silent.

Starve It

curvypervyme:

Sometimes I feed my darkness
Only because it barks louder .
A natural tendency
To be swayed by fear.

The days the quiet light fill my thoughts
Seem rare but in those jeweled moments of incandescence ,
I fly.

The darkness can’t bite me nor sniff
me out
When I remember
to walk in the light.

Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

Do not entomb her in a pretty pink tower
and insist that only the degree of her physical appeal
may set her free.
Teach her to fight her way out,
to consume books and spit knowledge
to lesser boys who insist she is just beautiful
and nothing more.

Teach her to love her body
not to manipulate and put a price tag on herself
as a defined worth
she shall be immeasurable
she shall be more than this.

Do not let her break herself down
when the boy in kindergarden hits her
because he likes her.
What are you really teaching her?
Pain and love are not synonymous
neither are pretty and perfection.

Teach her to be kind
to be harsh
to be demure
to be wild
to be sensitive
to be thick-skinned

But good god,

Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

I swallow sadness
in big gulps,

bathe my spirit
in saltwater
hide from the sunsets,
because I do not deserve such
grand sights
a tapestry of reds and oranges
dancing across a fading sky

trying to
find the path to exaltation
any way I can

"You have more to do
than be weighed down
by pretty or beautiful
you are a fiery heart
and a wicked brain
do not let your soul
be defined by its shell."

Here’s to a week for the unconventional before and after photos, National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. For most of my life, I’ve been heavier, and consequently shamed and belittled for my weight.  When I started college, however, I weighed 103 pounds, was eating 400-600 calories a day, doing about 90 minutes of cardio daily, and most importantly, I was anorexic. I was 15 pounds underweight, but no one thought to say anything because they were too busy applauding me for my unnatural weight loss. This is me calling them out. This is my telling them they were wrong. This is me thanking my real life and tumblr friends for everything they done to get me to the wonderful place I am today. So fuck you traditional pictures of “healthy”, I may be fat, but I beat my eating disorder. 

FUCK YEA this makes me ridiculously happy.  

This is beautiful.
