"Let people feel the weight of who you are and let them deal with it."
"I stopped going to therapy
because I knew my therapist was right
and I wanted to keep being wrong.
I wanted to keep my bad habits
like charms on a bracelet.
I did not want to be brave.
I think I like my brain best
in a bar fight with my heart.
I think I like myself a little broken.
I’m ok if that makes me less loved.
I like poetry better than therapy anyway.
The poems never judge me
for healing wrong."
"Otheride" by Red Hot Chili Peppers
How long, how long, will I slide
Separate my side, I don’t
I don’t believe it’s bad
Slittin’ my throat
It’s all I ever
