are you an emotionally stable person?
I do what I want….so no. Because what I want is usually not good for me.
I only learn through my cries, never my sighs. I only learn when I fracture, never bruise. My lessons learned have left scars that seasonly need restitching. And for the most part, I stubbornly march upstream always testing my limits. Life is dull when there is no hurt to contrast the pleasure.
Missing you comes in waves.
Tonight I’m drowning.
I am myself. That is not enough.
— Sylvia Plath, excerpt from “The Jailer” (via slutstatus
Do you still perform autopsies on conversations you had lives ago?
I believe pain breeds wolves
and joys give rise to moons.
We grow forests in our bones
so our memories can’t find us.
I believe we hide and haunt ourselves.
I’m not surprised that you don’t have a boyfriend. I don’t want you to take this the wrong way, I just don’t think that very many people, especially your age, would be able to keep up with you. You know you are and you know what you want to do. Your eyes light up when you talk about your passions, and you’re not afraid to defy social norms and be who you are. And all this, this scares people.
