And repeat after me with your heart: I no longer need you to fuck me as hard as I hated myself. Arkem: My favourite part is that little laugh in the background. Me: Right? This song is weird and awesome and really spoken word poetry with a musical accompaniment. You should listen to it now.

(battle scars) so one day a boy will come along with lips that taste like gunpowder and he will make you feel like your body is a war zone, will kiss your neck and plant mines beneath your skin and set them off with long, trailing fingers – and sometimes you will feel like you […]
