Hillary Bleu. Backwards. I am not a beautiful or unique snowflake. I love women and I love men. Bookworm. Language love affair. Poetry addict. Political junkie. Quiet and shy. Outgoing and naïve. I have been through a lot, but not nearly enough. This is my living proof
I grew up Christian. I grew up in the church. My grandfather was a minister. I am a former Sunday school teacher. I taught the bible to children. And I have a pretty good idea what God wants from us. What God is asking of each of us is, ‘Please don’t be an asshole.’
What the actual fuck.
Here’s what our parents never taught us:
You will stay up on your rooftop until sunlight peels away the husk of the moon,
You will fall in love with train rides, and sooner or later you will
A woman will kiss you and you’ll think her lips are two petals
You will not tell anyone that you liked it.
You can leave if you want, with only your skin as a carry-on.
All you need is a twenty in your pocket and a bus ticket.
You will lie to everyone you love.
One day you’ll wake up and realize that you are too big for your own skin.
Your body is a house where the shutters blow in and out against the windowpane.
