Favorite Quote:
Death is a terrible thing for anyone. The young, the old, good people, bad people... it's the same to everyone. Death treats everyone equally... there is no such thing as an especially terrible death. That's why death is so frightening. - Shikki


I don’t know what depression is to you, but…
To me it’s a bug that crawls under the skin.
I try to scratch it out.
I slice my flesh, hoping it’ll find its way out from underneath.
But it doesn’t. It stays, taunting me.
Instead of leaving, it sends a message.
Something red and numbing,
Liquidated and hypnotizing,
Letting me know it’s not going away.
