Lines from my book, Ideas of Illusion.
This book was released 7 months ago and the first draft finished three years ago.
There are some lines like these throughout the book that bears eerie similarities to what we are going through now.
The book takes place in the year 2025.
Grab a copy via the link in my bio "Net Neutrality is the basic principle that prohibits internet service providers like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon from speeding up, slowing down or blocking any content, applications or websites you want to use. Net Neutrality is the way that the internet has always worked."
"What is Net Neutrality?
Net Neutrality is the internet’s guiding principle: It preserves our right to communicate freely online.
Net Neutrality means an internet that enables and protects free speech. It means that ISPs should provide us with open networks — and shouldn’t block or discriminate against any applications or content that ride over those networks. Just as your phone company shouldn’t decide who you call and what you say on that call, your ISP shouldn’t interfere with the content you view or post online.
Without Net Neutrality, cable and phone companies could carve the internet into fast and slow lanes. An ISP could slow down its competitors’ content or block political opinions it disagreed with. ISPs could charge extra fees to the few content companies that could afford to pay for preferential treatment — relegating everyone else to a slower tier of service. This would destroy the open internet."
▪️Over the last couple of days i’ve been getting questions centered around the idea of “how do you know when you’re vibin’ with someone and when it’s just nothing?”
▪️This seems to be a very frequent problem people run into and the answer I always give them is always to give me some reasons why you feel this way about a person. If the only reasons why you like someone is a guess of their potential, an assumption of who they are and not actually what they are doing. It is physical attraction. Which is a form chemistry but it is a form of chemistry that won’t bring long term satisfaction in the relationship.
▪️There are many different forms of chemistry. We already talked about sexual chemistry. The next is comparative chemistry. Comparative chemistry is a make up of about 2-3 other chemistries such as personality, lifestyle, spirituality.
▪️Have you ever met someone and you two just have a lot in common and you’re like 😍. It can be your interests, your morals, how you were raised, anything. That is comparative chemistry. When we find people who are similar to us in any way we feel a bond with them. This is because we subconsciously want to feel valued and by meeting someone who is similar to ourselves we feel that they will be able to understand us more and that is attractive in a relationship.
▪️the last chemistry is compatibility chemistry. Have you ever met someone and you found yourself just talking to them for hours? You feel very comfortable sharing your mind and your thoughts and you two even argue well? That’s compatibility chemistry. This one has nothing to do with similar traits it’s about how you two compliment each other.
▪️Now we know the three forms of chemistry I need to state that in order to have a very satisfying relationship you need all three. Be weary of what chemistry you have to because you can easily mix the three up. Especially with sexual. If one is missing you will be looking for it in somebody else later on in life. If you have the last two that person may be better off as a friend.

Tagging a few to write a story using the #words silver bullet, open to all
@asundermoon @melissammarieee @britt_youri @envy_you.blvck.emperess
it started in November,
in the midst of
at the end of the falling
of Autumn leaves
when all was gray
as burned ashes,
color of his pelt,
he had his
first taste of me
and for many months
after that one November
underneath the same stars
his rhythmic howling,
led me out of bed,
into the darkness of the night
which I wore as a dress,
tailored for our encounters only,
the only finery he required
besides the sparkle of stars
and every month
around the same time
when the moon was
full and silver
it came back
for more of me
as he grew stronger
I felt myself weakened
underneath his touch
with every encounter
he took pieces of my
heart and my flesh
clawing the life out of me
so I did what had to be done
in my trembling hand
the cold shaft of a gun
handmade out of silver
liquefied with my own hands
with one pull of a trigger
I took my life out of his hands
with one silver bullet
I blew the life out of him
this is where the story ends (typo in image, hope to be forgiven for that 😬🙏🏻🖤😇) #poetry#me#photography me
You let someone hold you, and because of their carelessness, or because they're just tired of how heavy you can be sometimes, or for "no" reason, they drop you. Your heart's broken. Your vase is destroyed, shattered into many pieces that you can't possibly put back together on your own. They go- "oh! I was cut! She's in the wrong and I'm innocent." 😸 What about the poor flower? What about this poor flower? You got cut. You got cut but I died. Sorry to you but adieu to me. I don't bleed, I'm a flower, but I can get very badly hurt too. Also, I've not been resting in perfect peace; I've not even been resting in one piece.
I was in a bad place when I wrote this. 😹😹😹 It wasn't funny then, but as soon as one releases the painful feelings that give them sleepless nights and puts it all behind them, the past becomes quite funny. 🌾
One of my long term goals is to help end the misconception that love is always natural. I'd like to think that there are practical ways that you can LEARN how to love someone the way they want to be loved. That takes effort...like everything else that is good in this world. -@im.justjustin •
