I don’t have visual voicemail anymore.

imbrittsimpson:

But someone mentioned to me in
Passing
That my mailbox is full so I
Called it.
And I punched in my code.

The first one was my friend,
Olivia.
You made us stop being
Friends.

The second one was
You.
You sounded cute and
Shy.

The third one was also
You.
You were whispering into your
house phone.
Because you got
Grounded
After leaving school and driving six hours to my house during a
Winter
Advisory.
People were dying on the highway you took,
You got into an accident.
Your parents were driving you to my house the next day.

But you thought I was mad at you because I fell asleep.
It was getting desperate and I didn’t even notice.

The next one was also
You.
You sounded mad and were saying mean
Words.
I got scared.

The next one was also
You.
You were screaming and crying and I could hear the train in the background.
That’s the night you said you were going to
Die
Because I left your house.

I stopped listening.
My voicemail is still full.

I deleted the folder on my computer today.
I didn’t look first.
It was chronological.
I didn’t want to see us break.
More than I didn’t want to break up.
But this I can control
Which is more than I can say for my
Breathing

Hindsight is
20/20

russia’s lake baikal, the world’s oldest, largest and deepest freshwater lake, freezes over for half the year, creating the clear, turquoise ice seen in these photos by (click pic) alexey kharitonovalexey trofimov, santorifotovalery chernodedov and dmitriy sharov. (see also: more russia and lake baikal posts)

Here, have some utterly fantastic beauty. Clearly we need it about now.
