"Do not make
out of people.
This will leave you
and sad,
missing arms that
cannot hold
hearts with
shaky foundations."

"Love, our meeting was strange,
and we parted, each a stranger to the other.
I would take refuge in my tears
but find only flame instead."

Bryan overheard Josh and I talking at work, about you, and the reasons I’m so upset. He destroyed me with his analysis of your behavior and why you’ve been acting the way you have.

He says that you are just keeping me as a backup plan. He says guys just like to have options available to them, even if they never plan on acting on them…. He destroyed what was left of my heart with that.

He says that’s just what guys do. And Josh agreed with him when I asked him if he thought Bryan was right about you.

Is that really all this is? Is that really what all this time has been about?

It makes sense. It explains so many things. I don’t want to believe it of you… Did I really misjudge you that badly???

Everyone looks at me with so much pity…. There are so many I told you so’s on their faces and in their words, I can barely stand it 💔

I don’t understand. You act like you care, then you act like you don’t, then you do, then you don’t…

I hate how this feels. I’m drowning in anxiety. I can barely breathe, my entire insides are on fire and under so much pressure, i’m stupidly emotional-! And so lonely.

i just want to be ok :/

"Like brittle pieces of broken shells barely put together by sleep, there was nothing to fill her out, nothing to hold her together."

"A gleam of sunlight was lining the edge of her world as she woke up to a perfect stillness that saturated the room. It was quiet, like a stagnant silence leftover from a storm that leaves you huddled in the dark wrapped in a blanket hoping the lights would eventually come back on."

My soul is shredded, tearing itself apart, destroying me from the inside out… The pain is never-ending

I feel worthless. And stupid. And alone.

Self portrait
October, 2014

These past weeks I’ve been thrown between sanity and instability. Plagued by nostalgia yet wanting to feel reborn. It’s hard to stay in one place but there is no motivation to leave. Nothing feels tangible. Everything is unfamiliar.

 Renaissance Metal Art - Victoria and Albert Museum, London

Etching, derived from an ancient Germanic word for ‘eat’, uses corrosive acids to bite designs into hard surfaces like metal. The background can either be eaten away so the design stands out in relief, or the design itself can be bitten into the surface. The technique creates a shallow relief making it possible to create highly decorated objects without compromising the structural integrity of the metal making it suitable for items like weapons, locks and tool. Between 1500 and 1750 production centred on southern Germany and northern Italy where etched armour was a speciality.
