when you get writer's block and take your scenes to the screen.

I've been having a bit of trouble continuing with "the summer we were young gods", so instead of just staring at the same page I decided to bring the story in my head to life. this was a completely impromptu photoshoot when my friend and I went out for coffee during the weekend. and it just so happened that the edits I was doing matched the mood of the story I was writing! so, this is "if 'the summer we were young gods' was a movie".

huge thanks to my twin sol, josiah for being my muse and model. she is the absolute loveliest, and whom I am convinced is secretly a fairy (I mean, look at her!!) 🖤
See you again,
A question or a wish.
Should I still listen
To this thing I cherish?
These miles between us
And the memories of yore
Are all just a fuss,
A pebble in a shore
A drope of water
In the middle of a lake,
Unknown things that shudder
Yet still amusing as a snowflake.
For one last time
I want to be sure
That I am free from this crime
If I see you once more.

Vulnerability is a weakness, perceived by the ego. Nobody wants to get hurt as the ego whispers ‘toughen up’ to push you to remain strong. Build walls, learn ways to cope and, for the love of God, don't open yourself to people too much! You'll risk getting used, betrayed, angered and, the worst of it all, hurt.
Yet I choose to offer my heart to those around me. Take it, enjoy it and learn something about yourself from it.
Vulnerability is about opening yourself to the world. It is courage to be true, to be open, to be human.
However, an open heart is not always a vulnerable heart. It is full — of love, of care, of empathy, of understanding. It is up to you how you use these powers. Together with correctly set boundaries it is a very powerful tool towards a more intimate connection with others.
Emotions are important and all of us experience them. Shush the ego. Choose to be real and real people 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭. “𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗵𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗻𝘀 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗼𝗽𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗿 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘁𝘀? 𝗧𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗯𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿.” — 𝗛𝗮𝗿𝘂𝗸𝗶 𝗠𝘂𝗿𝗮𝗸𝗮𝗺𝗶
