  • no abortions but no unwanted children either

  • "you're the lesson i never could learn." (january summed up)
  • oh, look at you sweetness, painting with colors livened with water, a strawberry dream before you've even met me, before i've charmed you yet. i am pleased, apprehensive, chewing at the pink of my lip and wondering, yet again, hair dangling from the edges of my bed, blood rushing towards my head, if this Could Really Mean Something Important or i am just elaborately pitching up clean sheets for another projected daydream. let's hope. (first week of february)
