she breathes in words that fill her lungs with
magic and hope so her ribcage is close to
breaking, but her heart is forever warm.

it’s like the gods put stars in her eyes and
the angels inked their soft whispers onto
her skin.
like constellations traced out into a
map,
her fingers are crafted from dust into
a forest of secrets made from the
sorrows and joys of those around her.

hollowed flesh, torn down walls, and she
is brimming with daisies and dandelions
and an endless ocean that spreads out like
a blanket across hopes and dreams and
everything
lovely.

undone hair, opened palms, and she
is cheap perfume, bar soap and
black coffee;
a broken violin, merely a distant echo of
melody playing into the ambience
of the afternoon.

she is warm like the sun that just about touches
your cheeks with a flush.
she is gentle like the brush of wind against
your hair.
she is strong like a storm during a cold
winter night.
she is everything in the world strung together
with words and fullstops and the carve of her
handwriting.
she is life.
she is poetry.

1. Make sure you own a nice bed.

2. Sleep in it frequently.

3. Remember how nice it feels to flip over your pillow to the cooler side.

4. Check your pulse and hum along to the rhythm because it is music.

5. Write clear and make a lot of spelling errors. Get the poison out and don’t worry about it being neat.

6. If you can, do not shut people out. You will have good days and they should see them.

7. If you feel overwhelmed, go outside and scream. Find a nice empty park in the middle of the night and scream as loud as you can until your throat is bleeding. The world wants to hear you.

8. Let yourself fall in love. Believe it or not, there are people out there who want your blacks and blues.

9. Keep waking up.

10. Keep waking up.

11. Keep waking up. Maybe with someone next to you.
