Random Favourites

These are art that need favourit-ing. You may see a pattern where I favourite many things at once... that's when I go on new obssessions. And also, I'm a favourite ninja (as a stamp I favourited says in that mess I call my favourites) So i tend to get on a favourite roll where I fave everything!
PS: I spell it 'favourite' because I follow British Spellings

but i didn't slit my wrists to kill myself, and you fail to comprehend this. nah, it wasn't like that. i was just sitting on your front porch one day, listening to your music, mad at you, and i remember feeling like the colours of the sunset would be better suited to your flesh and your skin, and from there i trailed onto thoughts of arson, but i realized fire couldn't burn you, so i decided to destroy the one thing that mattered to you.
i didn't slit my wrists to kill myself. i'm not that self-absorbed. i did it because i knew it'd kill you more than it ever could kill me.
if every breath she takes is a ripple on my skin,
let her distort my fibres freely;
let her rewrite my bones with her whispers.
i would forget everything i know,
if you said you could teach me again.
Too young, too short breathed,
Icarus flies among dreams-
With each flap in his wings throwing twists and turns
Down his spine.
A mad blaze of heat and craze,
He is sunshine, he is light
Light to fall.
His own hot heart claims him;
It sells him to the ground, silenced forevermore.
Some days I feel like I am Icarus
My bones full of mad fire and my hair of wind
And to all the world I am
Inevitably sailing head first into liquid flames
In a burst of beauty and rage.
But you, you are the silent tempest below,
You are the earth ever calling my feet
Ever straightening this spine,
This bent, wiry figure.
Throwing crisp breaths into my origami wings
With you there is no fire sprinkled on my skin
No rage, no dying fury,
No need to die in beautiful tears' worth of stories.
No wind tearing through me.
With you, Icarus lives.

FireAlpaca, 6 hours
I asked her to push me off and she looked at me with pity. I stared back with pity.
She asked me if I wanted to see the world and I said, “no, never, don’t even try to show me.”
And she asked me why and I said, “whatever the world is, I don’t want any of it.’
‘Why not.’
‘I don’t want to just do what God has set for me, I don’t want to live like that.’
She told me that everything we did was what God set for us and that was the only option to live.
‘Then I don’t want to live.’
She asked me why I hadn’t killed myself.
‘Because my brother did that, and I mean I don’t want to follow him around like some pest. He killed himself and he threw away his train ticket so it’s the least I could do to give it value by keeping in in my pocket. Nah. I have to use my ticket yeah.’
She told me I made no sense.
‘I never pretended to, but God meant for me to be like this… right? Isn’t that your belief? I am of God, from God, because of God, I am only some glance at a cottage when you're speeding 110 kmph down a highway and no one ever thinks about that cottage, nah?’
She asked why I called myself a cottage. Why not a palace.
‘I don’t know. I assume it’s because I can lower expectations, and who doesn’t want that? But mostly I think I'm half waiting to be called “classic” and then have nothing expected from me and have it all over with so that I can just sit and count bricks for a while.’
She told me I was cynical.
‘Far from it, I see the world in full-colour. That includes everything.’
‘That isn’t colour I see, that’s just moss growing on the wall.’
‘My moss is still my colour. It’s brighter green than your money.’
She scoffed.
She told me I was dying slowly. I thanked her. After she pushed me off the cliff I never saw her again. But I should’ve thanked her, I had realized by the time I was already half-water and half-wind, I should’ve thanked her for the colours. Damn. The colours. I should’ve thanked her for the blue that claimed my skin and the white that brushed my hair and the golden that kissed my feet before swirling around me and I realized I was drowning. I should’ve thanked her for that, too. A lifetime of never dying never living and I found myself simultaneously doing both. I should’ve thanked her. I should’ve thanked her when I breathed out red into the blue. I never did, though. But hey. She took my train ticket. I thanked her for that. I told myself I did. I never wanted it, I realized. I wanted to sit in the cottage and not speed down a highway at 110 kmph because hell, I enjoyed the colour.
Till the moment the red swept my eyes down, I enjoyed the colour.
i dont know what this is. i just started and then kept going.
