Just a college student working through some things.


Sand. Small, negligible Forgotten. Until – It creeps into everything you Own. It attacks Negligible spaces. Every Empty Crevice – Filled with invisible irritants. It breaks everything you Love. I am sand. I am everything you love. I am small. I am negligible. I am forgotten. I am Owned. I am – loved. I have been crept into. I have crept into everything you Own. I have attacked negligible spaces I have been Attacked. I have broken everything you love I am everything you Love. I fill things with invisible irritants I am Full. But – It wasn’t until after I swallowed a fist full of assorted pills that I realized I want to live. It wasn’t until after I was dead that I realized I was alive. It wasn’t until after I lost all passion that I was truly passionate. It wasn’t until after I was righteous that I felt true guilt. It wasn’t until after I gave permission that I realized I had been stolen from. It wasn’t until after I put others before me that I realized I am worthy. It wasn’t until after I looked in the mirror that I didn’t recognize my own face. And I don’t know what creature has wrapped itself around me to create this face. This. Shell. I Love you. I Own you. I Break you. I Fill you. I am loved. I am owned. I am broken. I am full. but I cant be the only one thats why im still breathing

This made my heart break a little bit, then fixed, and then broke again. Such beautiful words, Cait x

Makayla, This is unusual but I am drawn to its brevity and honesty and style. Write more. Thanks. Keith
