"i know how to walk from here to there"
okay, i muse back,
"so walk through fires with me, walk through"
i cant. i never have been able to.
the places that i walk from are the mouths of cavernous houses.
and from them ive only just realised i can leave.
"i will give you wings and a heart and a lust for the finer things"
good, i need an incentive.
"but you must act upon that incentive, grasp it by the neck and kiss it"
"feel an ache and know you're dying, tis the human experience."
i always ache,
my emotions ache. its strange to ache everywhere but physically.
ive been laying in the same position for years and my back aches.

My emotions ache too-overthinking everything.
