Shambles & Rambles

My name is Michelle. This is what goes on in my head and in my heart. Venting, crying, laying waste to villages, causing havoc and trying to deal with the stresses of a 19 year old girl living alone. I love tattoos, art, music, renaissance faires, and reading books that take me far away. Welcome.

A new follower my age and dealing with the same struggle as myself? Score!!

Anonymous asked: are you HIV positive?

Nothing as scary as that. HSV2… Herpes Simplex Virus

"Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end. Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark. Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot. Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines. Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true?

We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.

They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to Middle-Earth."

I fell for you in a night. I fell for your flair, your light and your laughter.

Weeks later I loved your words. I loved the feelings hidden between the lines… the stops and starts and the knowing that even six hundred miles away, you were right here.

A week in your arms and I was finished. As surely as the rain would fall again in Portland, I was yours.
