tonight I'm gonna
pull down the sky,
throw it into my bed,
and strip it naked.

but I'll make it slow
and quiet.
I'll add just enough
warm touch
to make it seem sincere,
breathe in just enough life
to make it feel secure.

I'll whisper that I love it
and hold it tight, tight, tight
before I turn away from it,
let it memorize my back
as I fall into 
dreamless sleep.
this is a poem about taking advantage of someone and not feeling guilty

hey dA, long time no see.

I've been away from this website and I've been on and off for a while, and I'm sorry because I know there are a lot of you who like my work, and I know it's annoying.

I started on this website when I was thirteen or fourteen, and I've grown so much since I started, both as an artist and as a person. And I just want to let you know that I think my time here will soon be coming to an end. It's been a very long time since I've been consistent here. Life's getting in the way, and I have new pursuits and challenges that take me away from this place. I'm chasing my dream of being a writer. I'm looking at colleges and I'm figuring myself out. I've been through a lot lately and I'm growing from it, and that's what's important. I'll always love this place and I'll always love all of you. but I hope you know I'm still around. I might check here every once and a while, but from now on, if any of you want to keep in touch or contact me, check out my tumblr: bitchsqueal.tumblr.com/

Lots of love. :heart: Kat

I dunno I just felt so empty after reading this. Why do people do such things...  Invisible  Skipped through some more of your stuff and your use of words is absolutely razor sharp. I like it a lot - you can relate to it so easily. And yet it is very emotional... Worship

Ah I'll never understand. I guess the short of it is that people really and truly just suck sometimes. but some of them are remarkable.

Glad you like it! thank you very much!

You've had a good run here and I'm sure many of us will follow you into the void that is tumblr. I definitely understand the feeling. I've thought about leaving this place behind (I feel too old to be on here tbh) and it'll happen one day. But I wish you the best of luck in everything you do and in your future as a writer and just being a lovely person. Take care my sweet dear. <3

Ah thank you so much! The void that is tumblr, what an excellent description. :) I feel a little too old to be here as well, and it's just that life is changing. But I'm going to try to come back, at least for a little while. Thank you so much, I wish you the best of luck in all you do as well!

:heart: (teared up a little reading this, not gonna lie)

:heart::heart: I'm gonna try to keep up if I can, at least for a while. Even though I haven't been posting these past few months, I've still been checking in on and off to see how everything is going. I know I won't be here forever, so when I leave for good I'll be sure to have places where I can be found again

Beautiful. You chose an unusual perspective - the one taking advantage instead of the one being taken advantage of. But that's exactly what makes this piece extraordinary. It got me thinking. 

Keep writing and all the best!

Thank you very much! It was a bit inspired by the song "Me vs. Maradona vs. Elvis" by Brand New, which sings from the perspective of the attacker rather than the perspective of the attacked.

I'm sad to see that you'll be posting less and less on here, but I understand why. I'm not on tumblr, but I will have to look in on yours every now and then so I can keep up with you. I hope you write a book one day and let us all know if you do (just publishing your poetry anywhere, really), because your work is amazing and if you did, I would definitely buy it :) Keep writing! :heart:

awwww oh lord I'm getting the feels from all these messages. I've been checking in here periodically to see what's been going on, and I'm going to try to keep everybody updated. I don't think I'll ever be as active as I once was, but I definitely have content I'd like to post. I plan with all my heart to make a book and of course I will let dA know if I ever do. :tighthug: thank you so much, and I wish you the best! 

NEVER STOP WRITING! :heart:
