Tracey Emin: You Said I Was Beautiful (2009)
i think this is really cool because everyone can interpret it differently
me being the sour soul i am sees it as a statement of anger, confusion, and sadness wondering how someone who once called her beautiful could have left her so empty
but i can understand how someone else might see it as a statement of joy stressing how amazing it feels to be called beautiful
and then on top of all of that, nobody knows what the person who wrote it felt at the time or what she meant it to mean
i think the way you interpret this thing is how you feel in the moment and that is really.. wow
People always say that it hurts at night
and apparently screaming into your pillow at 3am
is the romantic equivalent of being heartbroken.
it’s 9am on a tuesday morning
and you’re standing at the kitchen bench waiting for the toast to pop up
And the smell of dusty sunlight and earl gray tea makes you miss him so much”
you don’t know what to do with your hands.
