the perfect family :’0
What I know about living
is the pain is never just ours.
Every time I hurt I know the wound is an echo,
so I keep listening for the moment the grief becomes a window,
when I can see what I couldn’t see before.
Through the glass of my most battered dream
I watched a dandelion lose its mind in the wind
and when it did, it scattered a thousand seeds.
So the next time I tell you how easily I come out of my skin
don’t try to put me back in.
Just say, Here we are, together at the window
aching for it to all get better
but knowing there is a chance
our hearts may have only just skinned their knees,
knowing there is a chance the worst day might still be coming.
Let me say right now for the record,
I’m still gonna be here
asking this world to dance,
even if it keeps stepping on my holy feet.
You, you stay here with me, okay?
You stay here with me.
Raising your bite against the bitter dark,
your bright longing,
your brilliant fists of loss.
Friend, if the only thing we have to gain in staying is each other,
my God that is plenty,
my God that is enough,
my God that is so so much for the light to give
each of us at each other’s backs
whispering over and over and over,
‘Live. Live. Live.’
night vale is full of thought provoking humour and beautifully inspirational monologues but “subway? more like wowza” will always be one of the best things it’s ever come up with
it’s right at the top of the list with “what’s an egg” and “i never knew school cleaning appliances were so strong”
"Mountains? More like nothings"
"Nice try, giant worms.”
"And I was like, whatever, rich guy!”
Forever wondering if I am contributing to a conversation by using my own experiences or being self centered and rude.
Someone please explain to me why the hip hop dance team at my school is entirely white girls???
au in which the library of alexandria didn’t burn down

"What’s the sexiest thing about being a library technical assistant?"
"Hmmm… I don’t know. But we did find a collection of 1960’s X-rated magazines in the microfilm department."
