a lot of my writings are long.. here's a short one.
pretending im invisible in a crowd of people is now a proud pastime of mine while i seem to have no trouble making conversation with myself over tv dinners. it took me a while to understand a bad day never really ends. we just give it new names every time the sun licks the dark off in poor attempts to stay hopeful. i used to get up early, smell the morning and say today will bring something to hold on to, i can feel it, just hold your breath and keep your chin up and keep the tears away. i don't do that anymore. yes the sun licks the dark off but more light only means more heartbreak. i cover myself in blankets and give in to the salt that runs down my face. i avoid saying hi to people now, i am scared to establish new relationships i will have no energy to take care of. no i can't promise you best friends. no i can't promise you forever. don't get used to laying your head on my shoulders because i am temporary and i feel like all the love i ever have to give is accidental.
i used to think that distancing myself for a little bit could fix it all but i looked back today and everyone feels so far away and things keep turning into dry landscapes behind me like sand seeping through my fingers and i can't hold on and i can't be still and i'm still walking away from everything like it's a good way to feel tangible. at the end of the day, shy evolves into comfortable and insecurities are my best friends and i only turn the lights on to make sure there's still life out there, that i too will have the strength to look at the sun one day. </ljcut>
