"An Invitation to Let Go" by Caroline Rothstein
An Invitation to Let Go By Caroline Rothstein Do you know of the heart’s pulse – its rapid penetration, crowding up against chest walls when words are no longer enough to capture the gut-wrenching shrill of a lover’s presence? Is it not magnificent? Are there not layers of childhood fantasy lush enough to abolish any marauding thought of doubt, relentlessly pushing its way into your skull,...

heartandchaos asked: I really love your poems. They make me so happy. I also love your explanation of Fat. It makes me love the poem even more now.
Anonymous asked: I ask about fat acceptance because of your poem Fat(which I totally love and helped me a lot when I was living in relapse after years of recovery, and still helps). I think it's part of the process of recovery, especially in the beginning, to deny ones fatness, because our ED's (and society) tell us so much shit about how bad being fat is.

warsanshire: I don’t know when I first realised that I could eat whatever I want and then vomit it out, the knowledge was stunning and soon everyone loved me more; my mother, my friends, the men in the streets. Beauty is a strange place, a road sign in the distance that you never actually reach. The term… Just read this. It speaks for itself. So loudly, so poignantly, so necessarily.
