When you’re using drugs, you’re driven by this mystical black energy, a force inside you that just won’t quit. And the weaker you get, the more you feed into that energy, and the more it fucks with you. When your spirit becomes dark and your lifestyle becomes dark, your existence is susceptible to infiltration by dark spirits. I’ve seen it so many times with addicts. You can see that they’re controlled by dark energy, the way they look, their appearance, their voice, their behavior, it’s not them.
Anthony Kiedis (via welcometoaddiction)
Why do I always fall for toxic boys. It’s like I’m addicted to heroin, and I quit, but I get dehydrated from withdrawals and a lonely boy showers me with his poetic words. Obviously he has to put in a lot of thought to describe me in such ways, I think he thinks about me a lot. But that’s not the case. He’s good with words because he uses them so often. I am not what he’s been looking for, I am not his best friend and partner. I am not his star crossed lover. I am not going to fix him. He is not going to make me feel complete.
Ellen Gwin, 4/6/14 (via pentral)
I don’t want to turn heads
for the way that I look:

I want to turn heads
with the words I use,
make you think twice
before you decide that
this heart is a plaything
you can toss around
for your own enjoyment.

I want to turn heads for
for the way I spread
tongues of fire,
not the way you wish
my legs would yield to you.

I want to turn heads
with the content of my rants,
my railing angry thoughts
spilled like the blood
of an invisible foe you know
better than the arch of my back.

I want to turn heads
with the way my mouth curves
far more gracefully and beautifully
than my waist and hips do.

I want to turn heads
because you can’t stop thinking
about the way my laughter sounds,
or the way my thoughts
seem to dance in the sunlight,
or the way I know how to tune
your heartstrings
to the pitch of my own.

I want to turn heads
because I am not always soft,
but just the same,
I am not always serrated.

I want to turn hearts, not heads
