Favorite Quote:
be more than just alive


never the outside,

you 

and me

and my silence drowned on your chest,

listening to your heartbeat,

memorizing how it beats,

memorizing how you breathe,

don't

turn the lights on

because they feel like darkness

keep the lights off

because they feel safe

be there

be around

close

shut off the noises 

shut off the world

don't me

my numbness

but be there

be around

there's moment in life where you can only save yourself, but someone's presence feels so safe
