Suffocate As big as the dawn of day is, it is nothing but rising after the flood of starry skies and illumination. It likes to suffocate into blackness even when tomorrow comes; the same way I do. I’ll tell you what suffocation is: It is the cries in my mind trying to reach out to my tongue the same way the sun sets at sea— they never meet. It is trying to talk to God, just to find out you’re crazy because you’ve been talking to a wall and you expect it to answer you back. It is bending my back without my spine popping out and I can bend over backwards all I want, try to stretch my pain out of my lungs and into your heart, but by tomorrow, I will be flexible. I will learn how to navigate through our problems like hurricanes do and we can destroy everything. We can destroy our favourite songs till we can no longer dance out of our shoes. We can destroy our favourite cups of coffee until it no longer tastes like magic but instead bitter. We can destroy ourselves with tight rope necklaced onto our throats until we no longer know each other. But I promised myself at nine, I’d learn how to swim, so that I would never have to choke on water. Yet, I still do.

I think a part of me knew. Hence why I was feeling so helpess and so discarded. I felt it. I tried extra hard to hold on but in the end love was not enough.
This will be everything I posted during that time period.
