when my mother was hungry or something she’d jokingly say “I am not to be trifled with” well I’m hungry for the love in your blood — and I’m not joking

I’d go back to my ex but he’s boring and you’re cooler but he’s coolest and it’s all switched like dodgy electricians fucking your house up — you still pay though

when I learn about water potential it never sticks and school has an adverse effect on me I just want to be water I’m looking for people like water — join me

if your name is water let me look through you and tell you that your fluidity has had an effect on how I look at things — 
— people, even

because when the night shrouds myself and my heart and my soul and all I want to do is revisit streets littered in poverty — I remember what people like you said

that poverty is just those that didn’t suffer a single problem, and those that aren’t loved by anything but their Gucci, and gold becomes their Earth — I agree

the strawberry of your heart the blueberries in your eyes I’m glad you’ve trusted me to not crush and blend them but I probably will — I’m sorry I guess

some women would say it’s their nature but I have an aptitude for making guys completely overwrought when dating me and it’s saddening — but hilarious

I mean I was always a bitch when I said that Catherine’s septum’s about to fall out any day now, I’ve done coke too, and my soul’s hallucinating — funny

I’ve got this inquisitorial speech that I want to show you, it’s all rhetoric and nonsensical — guess it matches this Alice in Wonderland persona I’ve got

there’s mirrors spattered in all the punctuation and subtext but please don’t study it like GCSE English, my words aren’t to be tested — hahahaha

often thought about narcissus and his case,
often it’s the same with me looking into you if you understand this then you’ll have a better insight — sadly

into me.
