Anonymous asked: You're my favorite writer, which I know is a bold statement to make but you're right up there with Jane Austen and Sylvia Plath. My god I can't tell you how many times I've read your poems, especially chambers, god I can near recite it now. Keep writing and writing and writing because one day I hope to be reading your poems out of a book you've written and not out of my journal where I've copied them down.
hey, I’m crying now okay you can stop making my heart explode into tiny little butterflies that fly down into my stomach now okay?
ahhh. I don’t even know how to describe to you what reading this did to me. It is quite literally a dream come true. I told my friend oncethat I think I was Sylvia Plath in a past life, because I love her so much, (on days I am particularly suicidal I break out my “Bell Jar” Tee Shirt and threaten to stick my head in the oven, too) and then took it back because it sounded so narcissistic. But he said no- if I believed I had a connection like that with someone to embrace it. Last night I was thinking after I read this that maybe we aren’t born with our past lives, but that we earn them as we live this life. Just as we gain our experiences as needed to succeed in this lifetime, maybe we take on entire other past finished ones as needed to evolve into our fates.
I am so glad you love Chambers so much- it was a quickwrite that I truly did not expect to have such an impact as it seems to have had. Since I was a little girl I have been a writer, and to be someone’s favourite is incredible. Thank you for your support, thank you for your devotion and loyalty and positivity toward my innermost thoughts brought to life. To write poetry is to turn one’s most vital organs and insides to ink. To publish or share that poetry is to splash that ink across billboards. When asked why I do not have a book out yet, it is simply because I do not feel ready for it yet. When it is time, I will know, and you will be the first to know as well. I promise that.
