    Last Night

    I bite them all last night. Annoyingy. I'd just gotten them to a nice length that was managable, but not short. Of course, I had to forget that I'd agreed to play football today. That's english football by the way. Seeing as I tend to fall over my own feet quite alot. I managed...

    wrapped up in your old coat. locating this memory-- follow your eyes in silence. as i lay down upon your pulsing warmth. yearning to settle in between your ribs. The strong safe beat-- located within me, too.

    It Tastes Like Ear Wax

    My mom would put that stuff on my nails. It was so bitter. How do I know what ear wax tastes like? Well, it wasn't intentional. At least I never ate my boogers.

    And All the Skin Around Them..

    I often start bleeding because I always bite the skin around my nails away. It looks soo disgusting. But I just can't help it. I always do that when I'm nervous.

    Biting the Nails

    I have a habit of biting my nails. I can't stop. I even bite my nails if I have nail polish on them. Nothing will stop me. I even tried putting fake nails on but it doesn't work. I chew right through them.
