1. "There is dirt
    under my fingernails
    and tread marks
    across my heart,
    but
    oh
    if I could be saved
    by anyone but myself
    it would be you.
    It is always you
    with your unassuming
    effervescent
    you-ness.
    My lungs collapse
    at the thought
    of you.
    My skin sings
    at the possibility
    of being touched by you."

  5. "Why do I write? Cause I have to. Cause my voice, in all its dialects has been silenced too long. Cause women are still abused as naturally as breath. Peoples are still without land. Slavery exists, hunger persists and mothers cry. My mother cries. Those are reasons enough, but there are so many more."

    one of the most beautifully said explanations for the power/ use of writing

  6. "If you’re ever lucky enough to find a girl who is a hopeless romantic with a dirty mind, you should hold onto that. Because she’ll be yours at two in the morning and at two in the afternoon the following day. She’ll kiss you where it hurts and until it hurts. And that’s important. Someone who not only knows how to turn you on but also knows how to treat you right is someone worth a little something… and a little more than usual."
