some history, and an old power station

your forgotten fumes that have seen that edge closer and closer to a dark neverwhere that i can never reach, that reach the stars before i can, before i can even manage to think about it, along with the trees that have seen too much history, the ebb and flow of time that never goes unseen you talk of wars, of glorious History that spills blood and leaves nothing but wreckage behind, i talk of you, the sweat and tears that builds and builds and most of all – of your face that seems ete

marks, and memories

tea-stained bedsheets that leave a mark on your heart when you look at it too long, into the ether when the time calls, with the thud of your heart, memories that slip off your mind like a piece of clothing you discard (memories you want to forget, like the one time your heart broke and you never thought you’d be the same again) (memories you want to relive, like the one time⁠ ⁠- ) i used to be like you, once, she said, the undertones of her smile laced with a feeling that i knew all t

Lorde — Solar Power

Solar Power, Lorde’s sophomore album, has been one of the most highly anticipated albums of this year, especially with the artist’s nearly four year long hiatus. The resulting album is not what we expect from a Lorde record, and is in no way comparable to her earlier albums, Melodrama and Pure Heroine.

‘Revolutions are Happening that Refuse to be Ignored’: Why Does the West Ignore the Suffering of Sri Lanka? — Heroica Women

By Hesandi Jayasekara Sri Lanka, once one of the most prosperous countries in the South Asian region, has rapidly become one of the least successful in the last few years due to the Rajapakse dynasty that came into power in 2019; they showed how far they would go in their quest for power, leaving a shattered country behind in the process. Their actions and the aftermath – millions of people left without food, fuel or electricity – have frustrated the people of Sri Lanka, to say the least.
