Chaotical theory in motion.

Seek the ones who never stop caring, who break down your walls, and help you come back to yourself.

What most people mean by beauty is a kind of aesthetic acceptability, not so much character as a lack of it, a set of features and lineaments that hide their history, that suggest history itself does not exist. But the template by which we recognize the features and forms in the human body that cause the heart to halt, threatening to spill us over into the silence of death - that is drawn on another part of the soul entirely. Such features are different for each of us. For one, it is the toes of the feet turned in rather than out; for another it is the fingers of the hand thick rather than thin; for still another it is the eyes set wide rather than close together. But all sing, chant, hymn the history of the body, if only because we all know how people regard bodies that deviate from the lauded and totally abnormal norm named beauty.

Being southern is really funny cause we’re inherently fake as hell. “bless your heart” is THE shadiest sentence in the entire lexicon of americanized english  

I wish people would stop exposing me.
