rebeccatillett I'm in love with your soft eyes boring into my hard flesh and I'm in love with your hands, the way your palms rest comfortably against the back of my heart and your fingers enclose it within the pulpy confines of your sturdy fingers, always grasping at the relentless breath escaping my throat. 4h

rebeccatillett I will persevere,
when your skin cracks open beneath my fingers,
when your bones become too brittle to hold you up,
when light and dark are indecipherable,
when ribbons of your blood weep to the floor threatening to drown us both,
I will laugh at the audacity,
I will inflate my lungs in defiance and
I will hold on,
I will persevere.

rebeccatillett "What if a demon were to creep after you one night, in your loneliest loneliness, and say, ‘This life which you live must be lived by you once again and innumerable times more; and every pain and joy and thought and sigh must come again to you, all in the same sequence. The eternal hourglass will again and again be turned and you with it, dust of the dust!’ Would you throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse that demon? Or would you answer, ‘Never have I heard anything more divine?'"
Friedrich Nietzsche

rebeccatillett Her smile will level you
Quite like her big green eyes
Nestled unassumingly behind
Her fluttering lids
But her hands will embrace
Your throbbing throat and squeeze
Until your lips turn blue
And your memories of her
Dissolve into the blinding stench
Of dreams unrealized {Rebecca Tillett}

rebeccatillett (365//365) At 2013’s end, like a raging forest fire I burned everything in my life down and started over in 2014 as something new. I spent this year fostering new growth, and becoming reacquainted with myself. And it’s been one beautifully eye-opening experience. I don’t know what to expect of 2015 but I’m trying not to expect anything at all. Sometimes the hardest but most basic thing can simply be to let life happen. So loosen your grip, friends, be grateful for what and who you have and be thankful you’re alive to see one more beautiful night of fireworks. I can’t promise 2015 is going to be a great year, but I can promise that either way, you’re fortunate enough to experience it.

The words “thank you” seem so small but I am so entirely grateful for all of the support you’ve given me throughout the year. So thank you for that and for following this 365 project. It has really meant the world to me. "Just to be clear
I don’t want to get out
without a broken heart.
I intend to leave this life
so shattered
there’s gonna have to be
a thousand separate heavens
for all of my flying parts.”
{Andrea Gibson}
