The other day I emptied my pockets and gave what was in them
to a homeless man: some bobby pins, a little bit of loose change,
a few ticket stubs, and a handful of notes written to various strangers.
One of them I found taped to the hood of a car;
it said If you’re reading this, I’m probably long gone by now.
On another, which had been floating in a bottle
by the side of the beach, was scrawled
For Lorna, the only woman I ever loved. You were my reason
to get up every morning; now you’re gone and I’m left
with a thousand reasons to sleep.
This man accepted all these little trinkets, all these odds & ends
of my soul with open arms, and never said a word.
When I was in ninth grade I moved through more hospitals
than my own skin; my mother once joked
that I should have a permanent collection of hospital gowns
in my closet instead of dresses.
She never understood how much that hurt,
or how, even to this day, I long for one of those anonymous notes
to be for me, just for me, for once,
for ever. How terribly beautiful it would be, I think,
if I were at the library one day and found a book there
with a folded piece of paper tucked inside, something that said
Dear Stranger, You think you deserve all this pain,
but one day you’ll wake up to the sound of someone showering
in the other room, and they’ll kiss your mouth full of soap,
will be beautiful again.

have you ever known somebody so shitty they completely ruin that first name for you?
Why are you so angry about JLaw's nudes being leaked? I thought you didn't like her.
- i am angry because this is just another example of women being shamed for taking nudes instead of the douchebag who spreads them being shamed for violating someone’s privacy like that
- i am angry because nobody deserves this, regardless of how i feel about their personality
- i am angry because this is pure misogyny and shows how women aren’t respected in our culture
- i am angry because she did not consent to having those pics posted everywhere but they still were
- i am angry because on the VERY RARE occasion this happens to a male celeb he is not shamed but rather the perpetrator is and it’s forgotten quickly whereas this will haunt jennifer for years and years to come
- i am angry because this was a sex crime and people are treating it like a joke
- i am angry because she is being exploited/objectified and some gross dudebros are probably jacking off to those pics
- i am angry because people are CONGRATULATING the fucker who did such an atrocious thing to her instead of being appalled
listen i may not like her personally but the fact remains that as a human being she is entitled to body autonomy and to choose who sees her naked body and who doesn’t
