73. Lesbian

The guy sitting beside me right now is ginormous... He’s also gorgeous. He’s dressed nice and has his hair slicked back, it's black so be looks like he’s ready for business or something serious like that. And I just wanted to say, if I wasn’t a lesbian I’d probably hit on him... But then again, am I really a lesbian or is that that box of restrictions I keep putting myself in? I think it's a box I can feel it, it's suffocating... God dammit I did it again… I'm not sure how to get...


#72. Airport Sex

I wanna spend all day naked in bed. I wanna wake up and cuddle and talk about our plans. I wanna go on dates and run errands. I wanna miss her when she leaves and I wanna get excited to see her again. And, I wanna make out, all the time… I wanna have phone sex and airport sex, and sex in the kitchen and I want us to kiss like we can’t get enough of each other's spit. But...I’ll be honest, I’m desperately afraid of all this. I’m afraid to open myself up, and I’m afraid to fall in love,...


71. Baby's Daddy

He’s a very tall human being. She’s very short, and she has an accent. She doesn’t, but she does talk like she’s from the ghetto, and oh, yeah he talks like he’s a hetero... And She’s a lesbian and she’s straight, and he looks like her, but he’s a boy so he’s transforming into a girl, so he’s what they call a transsexual. And she’s got IBS, it just happened, so she has to wear depends, which protects her pants from when she accidentally shits in them. And she’s on her way out of a...


70. Inside Out

We think we need these audacious things to be a human being. Things like dish soap, and laundry soap, and hand soap, and body wash, and shampoo and conditioner and bubble bath, all in the name of cleanliness. But, it’s not cleaning what you think it is, it’s only making things worse because of the obseogens found in the chemicals. So I’m just like, “yo people, you could save yourself a lot of struggle if you just cleaned yourself from the inside out." So how about you go in to your minds...


69. Dead

No one cared if she was happy or not, they only cared about themselves and what they wanted. And she was only little, so she had small voice and she was bullied a lot, so she got even smaller, the older she got, cuz she lost the confidence to be who she eventually she gave up. She gave up when she felt like she didn’t matter enough to be loved for who she was. And that’s why her life sucked... That’s why she ended up in a lot of shitty situations and that’s why she was always...


68. The Victim

I had this terrible terrible thought... Is this even real or is it just programming... Do you even know? Are you lying to yourself? Are you sure this what you want? No this isn’t what I want but I don’t know what I want so I’ll just do it for now, and see where it goes. Oh you know where it goes.... No where good, because the lies will catch up to you. Why do people look at me funny? They think your ugly. I am ugly. I don’t know how to fix it. Me either, I think you’re stuck that...


67. The Ocean

Even with a broken heart she’s still so awesome. I just think you're beautiful and I wanna take you home. Will you miss me when I’m gone? Does your mind play tricks on you too? My tastebuds are so confused… I like my coffee strong like a big black cupcake. Are you all in? Do you dream? I’m a no body now… My Monster is behind me right now. What’s your Monster? Do you even know? I wanna love you so hard my heart feels like water and I flow all over you like a wave, and I make you...


66. Layers

I’m starting to see who you really are now. I’m starting to understand how to dance with you and how to play with you, how to talk to you. I’m understanding what your layers are, and I see how each layer tells a very different story on its own. Each layer feels a certain way and looks a certain way, so I’m starting to see what each layer looks like naked. When they're on own, exposed. And, so now I know why you are the way you are when you're all squished together When all of your...


65. He's afraid

He’s so not into her and she knows it. You can tell by the way he walks and the way she walks beside him. She holds onto his arm for dear life and you can see how he's wants to shake her off and get her off, so he can breathe. He's the kind of guy that just like his space, you see... He likes to keep his walls up, so he doesn’t have to be vulnerable enough to fall in love. Cuz he's afraid of it. And she knows it. And she knows that she's not the only one he's fucking for fun. And she...


64. Dirt

It’s like, you go so long being in the dirt. The stuff people walk on, and it's stuff no one cares about. And to make being in the dirt even worse, eventually the dirt gets covered up in snow, and you get buried in the cold. And that's when things get dark and lonely, and it feels like there’s no way out. But, if you stay positive in spite of your conditions, and you do the work to plan your escape, eventually one day the sun will come, out and melt the snow and the rain will clean you...


63. She's beautiful

She’s so abstract and hard to look at when you first look at her… It's like you can't decide if she's beautiful or hideous because she's so confusing and mysterious. Plus, she's awkward to talk to. And she can't walk a straight line to save her life and she likes to make her personality traits look like shapes that look like tits and dicks, and it doesn't make any sense. She...she also has this side of her that looks like a reflection of Pure Love, and I think it’s because of the glass...


62. Afraid to love

When you were a kid, something happened and it made you afraid to love, and that fear imprinted in your cells, a series of beliefs that put conditions on what it means to love and be loved…and what love looks like and feels like. What love does and doesn’t do. And then those beliefs dictated your every move... Your daily decisions became a prison of restrictions and you kept thinking and feeling and acting in ways that kept you walking down paths that were filled with low...


61. Escape

I'm finding it really hard to understand the point of my existence lately. If I’m not capable of executing on my plans to save the world, then what’s the point of me being here…huh? That’s what I wanna know ’cause at this point, I’m really wondering what it would be like to fade the fuck out. And happy people think it’s so bad to talk about killing yourself. They say, "don’t say that..." "Don’t talk like that." They worry you might actually do it, and that would be a damn shame,...


60. Pure Love

When I close my eyes, all I see is beautiful colours moving through liquid gold. And I dunno what it is about the way the colours blend in with each other but, it turns me on. It opens me up to more love and I really wanna get down with…her. That’s what I call her now. Calling her by her name was really getting me down. It’s like I know her but I don’t, and all I want is to know if she felt what I felt, that day we met at the Gateway. But she never contacted me. So I’ll never...


59. Ecstasy

No one will ever understand what it is about you that I love so much, because they aren’t us. And I like that about us. That we have this scared bond that feels like a drug. I guess this is similar to what ecstasy feels like... Not that I would know, I’ve never done ecstasy before, but I hear it makes you feel really good, and you feel really good to me. You turn me on in ways I never knew was possible and I have to confess, I’m trying to keep some distance between us, because I find...


#58. killed

Like you can't comprehend the feeling you get when you finally accept yourself, and you love yourself unconditionally. Like I didn’t understand it, until recently. But it’s taken me a loooong time to get here, and I’m not even really here yet. I don’t know where I am actually, that’s why I’m forest mapping myself. I wanna see who I was and who I’ve become since I killed who I was. Seriously. Anyway, I just wanna say, in case I haven’t made it clear... I’m so proud of you for everything...


57. Ocean view

She wanted to live with purpose, but she couldn't find her purpose… She wanted real love but she didn't love herself... She wanted good health but she didn't know herself so she always beat herself up for never feeling well. She wanted to be rich but, she didn't think she could handle it, so she never could get it. She wanted nice clothes and a nice home that felt good but she didn't really know how to feel good, so she settled for what she knew, and what she knew wasn't very...


56. Beautiful soul

So I just want to say thank you because I know you're helping me... I can tell by the signs. The perfect parking spots, and everything I need, that I’ve asked for to create art. And now I just really believe in you more than ever. I mean I've wanted to believe in you forever but, it’s just been hard when nothing was changing. But now I see that it was... Now I realize just how long change can take which is really based on your resistance to the change. Which usually has something to...


55. Getting ready

When I see you, I see your innocent beautiful soul. I see your charm and your sense of humor and your kindness and I see your passion. I see your patience and I see your good intentions... And I’m so proud of you for all the assertive action you’ve been takin. And just remember, no matter how lonely you feel, your never alone cause you're surrounded by pure love and Spirit loves you very much…. So don’t give up… You’re getting close… Getting ready, to be ready, to be ready for...


54. stop ourselves

You're gonna see the way my hair falls to the side and the way I talk, it's a bit crooked cause my face has shifted. You're gonna see the way my eyes move, and your gonna get butterflies when I look at you…. You're gonna see the way I move my head to the right a bit when I'm thinking about something I don't quite understand, and your gonna see the way I move my hands… When I talk. When I write… When I think I'm right And when I touch you with the inner workings of my mind. You're...
