I wanted to tell you that I’m not afraid of being moved anymore;
Not afraid of this heart packing up its things and flying transcontinental
with only a wool coat and a pocket with a folded-up address inside.

Shinji Moon, “If I Left You a Voicemail, This Would Be It” (via poetrist)

coming home to an empty apartment, making a dinner from scratch, and drinking red wine from a mason jar while watching tv shows about witches

The thing about patriarchy is that individual men, gay and straight, are often really wonderful people who you love deeply, but they have internalized some really poisonous shit. So every once in a while they say or do something that really shakes you because you’re no longer totally certain they see you as a human being, and you feel totally disempowered to explain that to them.
