    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I must've gotten this bad habit from my dad. I do it when I'm bored, scared, nervous or stressed. the only time my nails grow out is when I am truly happy in life.

    Black. I like to paint my nails black. Sometimes blue, red or purple, too. But, mostly black. It's a girly thing, but I like the way it looks.

    Never say goodbye when you still want to try. Never give up when you can still take it. Never say you don't love them when you can't let go.
