I was telling my friend a story the other day and it must have taken too long because he quietly took out his wallet and handed this to me.
He literally carries like 50 of them at all times.
Wow, I really need to make these….

omg I love this
When you touch just my ankles, something sizzles
my hair, my lungs.
They tell us about chemistry,
but not about how it comes hand in hand with hunger
not how the shy of another body against yours
will loosen you into boneless
I can barely hold your hand without losing my voice,
God forbid our thighs brush, my cheeks will be wearing red for days
last night I dreamt of you and woke up, gasping
your name like a ghost on my lips
I wonder what will happen when you kiss me.
They’ll be finding my ashes in strange places for days.
Azra.T “First Love” (via 5000letters)
a ghost on my lips
Seems about right.
It definitely works.

The data stream can’t be shut off. It pours into our lives a rising tide of words, facts, jokes, GIFs, gossip and commentary that threatens to drown us. Perhaps it is this fear of submersion that is behind this insistence that we’ve seen, we’ve read, we know. It’s a none-too-convincing assertion that we are still afloat. So here we are, desperately paddling, making observations about pop culture memes, because to admit that we’ve fallen behind, that we don’t know what anyone is talking about, that we have nothing to say about each passing blip on the screen, is to be dead.
This article articulately states what I find so disturbing about our culture and our devaluation of words and information. It’s sad that we find more importance in the act of saying rather than the actual content of what is meaningfully said.
