a lot of love,
a lot of blood

"On the whole I am inclined to think that a witch should not kiss. Perhaps it is the not being kissed that makes her a witch; perhaps the source of her power is the breath of loneliness around her." - Emma Donoghue

S., 24, Italian. Kate is my internet handle and you can call me that. People scare me so I'll probably never talk to you even if I think you're cool, and if I do it'll be very awkward. English is my second language; I apologize for any mistakes.

I love a lot of things, including fairy tales, mythology, ladies who make music, ladies in general, history, languages. I watch a lot of movies and tv, I ship all the things, and I love Pokémon a lot.

oh, I’ll make it
oh, I can take it
it’s nothing more than
love and war

this is it, love, where the shadow meets the light
I can’t speak now
I can’t find an honest sound

I’m a ghost and you all know it
I’m singing songs and I ain’t stopping
my hair grew long so I fucking cut it
and when you looked away I snuck those trimmings in your locket

dig up her bones but leave her soul alone
let her find a way to a better place
broken dreams and silent screams
empty churches with soulless curses
we found a way to escape the day

won’t wait in a cage till someone comes to rescue me
I thought maybe I’d stay here but I can’t let myself be weak
the devil dressed herself up in a handsome, loving smile
and she’s been pulling the wool over my eyes for all this time

cause you can’t always save a drowning man
especially if he don’t try to swim
and if you choose to reach out to him with your hand
there’s a strong chance that he might drag you in


favorite singers → Gabrielle Aplin

you are the avalanche, one world away
my make believing while I’m wide awake
just a trick of light to bring me back around again
those wild eyes, a psychedelic silohuette
I never meant to fall for you but I
was buried underneath and all that I could see was white
my salvation, my, my, my salvation

you are the snowstorm, I’m purified
the darkest fairytale in the dead of night

he’s a dog, but he’s dressed up like a sheep
he’s got bones all through the backyard
but he likes to fool me
and I travel through the doorway
I thought I’d be fine
but it’s not the way it’s gonna go this time

daddy, why don’t you protect me
someone’s gonna hurt me
there’s nothing I can do

then he came, and stood by my window
told me it’s safe, that he’ll carry me home
why, why do you sit by the window
I’ll take you out, aren’t you sad on your own?
we went and did the things you don’t
the devil and me, and you don’t know
I’m glad I didn’t do what I was told


favorite singers → Anaïs Mitchell

you and your pity don’t fit in my bed
you just burn like a fire in the pit of my bed
and I turn like a bird on a spit in my bed
how long, how long, how long?
how long? just as long as I am your wife
it’s true the earth must die
but then the earth comes back to life
and the sun just goes on rising
and how does the sun even fit in the sky?
it just burns like a fire in the pit of the sky
and the earth is a bird on the spit in the sky
how long, how long, how long?

drifting, land in sight
never nearer the marina
did they curse old serafina?
still we will not stand ashore
we should dive in, I should dive in
not spend my only nights trying to keep calm
far below deep waters’ rising, rising

they left me here with a ship to sink
queen of a wide open sea
I kissed the captain but the cabin boy was the one that did for me

went down with the waters
a thunderstorm caugh us

lights can shine too bright, dear
nobody can see
hide safe behind your light, dear
but understand it won’t blind me
and I know it would do no good
but I’d hurt you if I could

I once saw a dragonfly
caught in a spider’s web
as I looked at her once more
I thought that she was dead
so I left her alone and went on my way
and I was dreaming of paris and pierre boulez
but she called to me with a beat of her wing
she called to me and said free me

she said come and fly away
with me tonight

I went into the woods today to see what I could find
I saw an owl and he told me that he was wise
I went into the woods today to see what I could find
I saw a fox and he told me to run away and hide
he said take your chances, run and hide
