My First Diva Cup Just Brought Me Closer to My Period
As a genderfluid individual, who often ignores their female body, I never thought I’d form a relationship with my period. But there I was, at 26 years old, reaching my fingers deep inside to pull out the bloody diva cup- and surprisingly, I felt relief.
Behind You Chapter 20
Beginning | Previous Chapter ~ Time is a son of a bitch sometimes. When you’re stuck at an appointment, or waiting for the bus, time feels as if its slower than a sleepy turtle. But when you’re having a great time with a friend, or with a partner in the sheets, time flies by in barely a blink of an eye. It’s the moments you wish to hold on forever, when time just slips through your fingers.
The Salty, Sweet, & Shit List
--- I've always really wanted to use profanity in a title, maybe it started when I was ballsy enough to write "bastard" on my Grade 11 English exam. In university I wrote also wrote "fuck" multiple times to answer a question about literature and the Holocaust on an exam. But I digress, as an elementary school teacher I have to stay "professional". Though this is not the classroom. Thank fuck.
Behind You Chapter 19
Beginning | Previous Chapter ~ Something that never ceased to amaze me were those moments where Lilah and I would intertwine. I don’t mean just sexually, but also on the dance floor. The music pumping endorphins through our system, one heartbeat syncing everyone together. It was during those magical moments that I’d feel her engulf me in her protective feathers. I don’t really know if others could see her the way I did, but it didn’t matter; I liked feeling like I was the only one she chose to be vulnerable with.
Behind You Chapter 18
Beginning Previous Chapter ~ I felt the darkness creep into me once again. It was as if it was leeching its way into every possible crevice and I was suffocating on the toxins. I didn’t know how long I could continue on like this, the nightmares relentless, while living was possibly worse. Living without her. They kept saying that the pain would lessen with time, with patience, with the distraction of the agony of others. I did not believe that. This type of ache will never leave me until the day I die. Or until the day I find her.
Behind You Chapter 17
Previous Chapter ~ “Move in with us?” “Yeah?” “Yeah” “Okay” Most of you by now probably feel that everything has been perfect in the last few months, and honestly it really sometimes feels that way. It’s nice that things finally work out, don’t you think? I mean, for so much of our lives we worry about overcoming the closest hurdle and it’s so easy to lose sight of the whole race ahead.
When Worlds Collide
There weren’t always dragons in the Valley, but I got too tempted and too reckless. A broken heart could do that. Have you ever fallen so fast and so hard that your wings felt like they were going to catch fire before ripping off? No? Well neither have I until way into the future, and I knew it was going to happen. But the cause of such could be altered at any moment in the present time. Who knows why I might be falling. Maybe I jumped off a building, or got pushed off this said building. Or maybe I fell in love and then that person pushed me off a building. I should really stay away from buildings.
