we love like we sin, terrified and breathless.

we are tea-at-midnight girls, naming constellations
that don't exist after lost tourists we meet on the
street, reminding our freckle covered shoulders
that even beautiful things can be made ordinary.

we are broken fingers and half-closed eyelids and a
penchant for mischief. we are ribbon skin and frantic
desires and incandescent hope. we are a voice spilling
secrets to falling leaves diving after their arachnid brothers,

mimicking the millions before us who were
judged unfairly, unjustly but all too correctly.

we whisper promises to dandelions because they do not
know how to hold grudges and we refuse to die because
the world can not stand the sight of our scars and
cloud-colored eyes filled with a malady called freedom.

we are believers and dreamers and scared to death but we
are not done yet. we are dusty library windows and thunder
raking through bones and leaving eyes glowing, skin shaking,
burning whispers of 'I'm sorry, but this is me. This is just

me.'

we are not victims, we are survivors,

and you'll be praying for death by tomorrow morning.
full title: and we found that, together, we could never breathe

Thank you everybody for the favorites and the comments! I'm honored and pleased to have gotten a DD. I never thought my writing would really touch someone but it seems like I was wrong. Again, thank you so much.

I'm not sure if I've already commented this, but I love it. "Even beautiful things can be made ordinary" and, apparently, even ordinary things can be made beautiful :) Kudos.

Wow, this was beautiful. There are many things I like about this piece of writing...but imagery is the tops. :+favlove: I feel the need to parade this around and show everyone.

Haha, that's what I did with my friends. I was just like, "Look how awesome I apparently am."
