75 (who?)
I’m spending most of my time
not crying, and I’m sorry,
but I don’t think I’ll ever love anyone
as much as aspirin, or lullabies,
or the cheap wine  sold for two dollars a bottle,  
or overly-apologetic letters bending over backwards
to make a point of themselves, or the pink petals
blooming on my wrists like flesh and blood miracles,
or the songs named after women
worth loving.

Radical acceptance
is understanding
things may not change,
but you will have to.

I am most alone
surrounded by people

and the buzzing in my head of words
that should have lost their meaning

back when I discovered
they never meant anything
at all.

Dedications are only relevant
to people who appreciate shitty poetry,
or you.  Insanity is writing the same thing
over and over and expecting it not
to sound clichéd.

and as much as anyone will swear otherwise,
I am a statistic. A number, an example,
a case study in the manipulation of
narcissism and moving on. Yesterday,

I dreamed. Today, I became
my greatest fears.
discarded title: sertraline epiphanies

I'm sorry if this is really presumptuous and pretentious but I think maybe I am right now, too, so oops

really biting and honest.

you say things here that I believe a lot of people think/feel...but of course you say it in ways they couldn't quite.

a mark of a great writer, I think.

Oh my god #3. That hit me like a punch in the gut. I feel like that so often, and I'm sorry that you do too.

I hope that it gets better. :heart:
