261 (who?)
and if it’s cold in the middle of the night, you can trust me to burn the building down.

if the walls are too tall and the secrets too thick. if you can’t breathe past the black souls twisted around ash-lungs then follow me. trust me to start a riot. because we are more than they can handle, because we are smoldering indecently, we are young and heroic and flawed and angry. because we are bleeding hands tearing down doors, we are throwing fists against impassive chests.

we are feeling too much while they aren’t feeling enough.
and you better believe me: we’re going to revolt.

and if they try to stop us, we will hurdle their pathetic attempts at blockades. if they try to put us in a box, we’ll stick dynamite in their teeth and blow off the fucking roof. because we are unstoppable, untameable, uncontrollable. we are wildfires and tsunamis and twisters ripping through small town america.

we are clawing down cliff walls and demolishing forests. we are the revolution, we are the uprising. we are punching fists in the air and throwing rebel yells over the airwaves. we are everything, we are hate and love and pride and we know at the end of the day that we are right.

and we know when they close their eyes at night that they fear us for our hearts.
they fear us because they cannot understand us. they fear us because they cannot predict us.
they hate us because they cannot be us.
{"what you wanted couldn't hold us down
what we needed turned it's back so
outloud, we're telling your secrets
outloud, to the lovers and fees
outloud, cause you never experienced
this is the side of us nobody sees"

full title: when i say it isn't personal, i'm lying

i'm in a slightly rebellious mood :]
[and for the record: i didn't write this with the theft in mind.
but i won't let the theft keep me from posting.]

your pieces are inspiring. You could say you are my poetry idol. All of your pieces hit home, and strike deeply. Truly, you are gifted.
