Favorite Quote:
"Soon madness has worn you down. It’s easier to do what it says than argue. In this way, it takes over your mind. You no longer know where it ends and you begin. You believe anything it says. You do what it tells you, no matter how extreme or absurd. If it says you’re worthless, you agree. You plead for it to stop. You promise to behave. You are on your knees before it, and it laughs."
— Marya Hornbacher

you’re bad for me, i know you’re bad for me
but i still love you

i love you not for who you are
but for who i wish that you could be

i love you in spite of the pain
i love you for the fleeting happiness you give me

i love you in the way that i stand at the edge of a balcony
staring longingly down at the ground

i love you in the way that my knuckles whiten as i clasp the wheel
daydreaming of flooring the gas and colliding into a tree

i love you like i’ve never loved before
i love you in the same way that i hate myself

the day you left me i downed a bottle of sleeping pills
but that’s okay, i always liked you better in my dreams
