*CURRENTLY ON HIATUS* Will return after an indefinite period of time. Lots of love, IP. (Check my "about.")
I wanna be a book but I was born a person, so I'll settle for an internet poet instead.
There are so many important things here. I'm trying to breathe them all in at once, to be a little bit a part of everything, so I'm sorry if I'm not entirely anything. But I'm trying. I'm no trailblazer. But I hope one day, the time comes for me to fight for what I believe in, and I take it.
I tag my posts with as many trigger warnings as I know. I'm only human and I might miss a few, so if I do, please please please let me know and I'll make a mental note. Thank you.

My writing is split into categories below. If you want to read them uncategorized, they're all available under the writing tag. Enjoy!
"We claim autonomy for ourselves and forget that in so doing we can fall into the tyranny of defining other people as we would like them to be. By focusing on what we choose to acknowledge in them, we impose an insidious control on them. I notice that I have to pay careful attention in order to listen to others with an openness that allows them to be as they are, or as they think themselves to be.
The opposite of this inattention is love, is the honoring of others in a way that grants them the grace of their own autonomy and allows mutual discovery.”
