The burdens on this chest
The vessel of these words
Sinking under tension
Drew afterthoughts and hurt
I used to recognize myself
It’s funny how reflections change
When we’re becoming something else

Need condoms? Right there in the fucking aisle in a supermarket or CVS. Need female birth control? Nah bruh, need a prescription and the consent of the lord Jesus Christ amen
Not to rain on everyone’s parade, but hormonal birth control really needs to be prescribed because…
THIS! Hormonal birth control shouldn’t be taken lightly, it seriously increases the risk of thrombosis and strokes, not to mention the formation of breast cysts, a very common side effect. You should take the pill only because you suffer from a medical condition, like dysmenorrhoea for example. There are a lot of contraceptive available that won’t put your health in danger, so please make an informed choice. And if you decide to take it, ALWAYS do some medical exams first, hormone dosage isn’t the same for every person, and every pill is different, they’re not interchangeable.
Have you imagined for one moment what this has been for me? An unforgivable transgression that has marked me for life. You think you’ve suffered? You think you know blood? You think you’ve walked on corpses? Spread them from here to the horizon, and I have walked further. You weak, foul, lustful, vainglorious man. How dare you speak to me of death?
