5 summers from now
there will be another guy
who will be wrapping his hands
around my waist.

And he’ll ask me
if I have been in love.
I will smile and look into his eyes
and tell him how I have never felt
this way before.
But I won’t be able to say
that 5 summers ago,
there was someone who
made everyday seem like
mid spring, and how he
made me see blossoming flowers
in mid winter.

And he’ll leave soft kisses on me,
and tell me i’m his world.
And i’ll effortlessly say it back,
but I won’t be able to say that
5 summers ago someone else
was my entire universe.

And my apartment will have
little specks of him all over ,
but I won’t be able to tell him
about the little smudged off specks
of you in my heart.

" 5 Summers from Now by Dia T. (via cared)
One heart is not connected to another through harmony alone. They are, instead, linked deeply through their wounds. Pain linked to pain, fragility to fragility. There is no silence without a cry of grief, no forgiveness without bloodshed, no acceptance without a passage through acute loss. That is what lies at the root of true harmony.

Honestly I think the nail polish is really cool. No where does it say that it's a womens job to keep herself from getting raped. Men need to know that its not okay to rape women regardless of whether she drank it is nevr a womens fault. But we all know there are some fucked people who will put stuff in a womens drink, The nail polish is just meant to help her know.

I mean it is cool that there is nail polish that can change colors based on something that is consumed. I am not arguing that. However, I think that more effort should be put into educating & spreading awareness, stopping & convicting rapists rather than pretty much creating things that women have to do, in addition to the long list that society already tells us, not to get raped. In my opinion, it is just another thing that puts pressure on us and not on rapists. I believe that this does not help society’s current stance on rape & rape victims. I believe that it is only reinforcing rape culture.
