I am Alizarin Rose, The Red Passionate Bitch, but you may call me Rose.
I chose to be born on the 25th of February, in the year of 1979. My life is an ongoing train wreck, so I write about it.
I am a survivor of years of sexual violence.
I went to college, but I never finished because I hate school.
I paint pictures of mournful women standing beneath soulful trees, and I crochet things no one want’s to wear, and I sing in funny voices when I think I can’t be heard.
I love music, and it is the only thing that grounds me sometimes, and my absolute favourite musician is Kate Bush.
I read a lot of fiction, and Jane Austen is my favourite author.
I smoke to many cigarettes, and sometimes alcohol and Lady Ganja are the only friends I feel I have.
I was a junkie for ten years, which is why I lost custody of my son.
I survived colon cancer, but now I shit in a bag.
I have Bipolar II disorder, so everyday is a struggle to remain on the path I feel Fate as set forth for me.
I call myself a pagan, but I adhere to no faith in particular, I simply believe They are real, and that They live within me.
I don’t relate well with others, but despite this, like any other human on this Earth, I long to make meaningful connections with people, and to give and feel love.
I am lonely all of the time, and because of this, I decided to share my story, because it’s someone else’s story too, someone who doesn’t feel they have a voice at all, and as long as there are people who feel they can’t be heard, I feel I have a responsibility to speak.
