#i've had wine y'all
It’s a shitty quality photo but the tattoo on my arm reads “more adventurous” and is a line from the poem “Meditations in an Emergency.” I’m posting it here (along with a section of a poem) to remind myself why I got it in the first place: I will not let broken hearts stop me from demanding the boundless love that I deserve, especially from myself.
Each time my heart is broken it makes me feel more adventurous (and how the same names keep recurring on that interminable list!), but one of these days there’ll be nothing left with which to venture forth.
Why should I share you? Why don’t you get rid of someone else for a change?
I am the least difficult of men. All I want is boundless love.
Even trees understand me! Good heavens, I lie under them, too, don’t I? I’m just like a pile of leaves.
