I want you with all your aching cradled in your chest, with every smile hiding behind your teeth, with your soul cracked open and your heart undone.

But I also know that beer makes you proud, wine makes you laugh, spirits make you love, and we were full of all three. 

Today I suddenly started feeling completely at a loss, and I don’t know why. 
I’ve been trying to shake the feeling all afternoon, so I went to the gym, and I listened to music, and I drank some tea, and I started draw, and all of a sudden I completely blanked on what to draw. So I started getting really panicky, and short of breath, and jittery for no reason, and I just wanted to cry and cry and cry.
But I caught my reflection in the mirror, and then I looked down at my brush, and then I looked back at my face, and I guess I just decided to pull myself together because there is no fucking use crying when there are so many other things I want to, and should be, doing.
So I started painting my face. And I guess it sort of ended up looking like tears anyway, and I promise you this isn’t a sad story. It’s the story of how I drew the blue out of my mind, and onto my skin, and so now I’m going to go have a shower and wash away this paint…and this feeling.

You will suffer a lot, but you will discover a strength you never knew you had. You won’t know how to use it at first. Sometimes you will hurt people with it, sometimes you will hurt yourself.

After reading "To the boy who matched me on Tinder" two minutes ago I went straight to find the artist who created it. That was one of the most beautiful things I've ever read. I'm in the midst of scouring through your art right now. I just wanted you to know that I think you're lovely.


Hello my darling,

It was actually originally posted to my main blog, here, but thank you! This was such a kind message for you to send. I want you to know that I really appreciate the time you took to send me this little ray of sunlight. 

I think you’re lovely too x

what i love about your art is that it's more than just something nice to look at. it's a conversation, an idea, a form of proof, a documentation, a memory, a shard of truth, a message of light. i adore your ways. xx


This message has left me somewhat speechless. 

You flatter me. I am going to pin these words to the board on my desk so I never forget why I do what I do.

Thank you so much. You have legitimately just made my day. 

I adore you x
