" Keeping your head above water is exhausting
Especially when all you know how to do is drown

" I’m beginning to miss you horribly. It’s not yet sorrow or anything tragic, it’s more like some food I’m lacking: I’ve enough just to vegetate, but always with an empty feeling in my stomach and a certain languor — whereas with you I used to be vigorous. "

I cannot live in this body anymore
This heart is for someone else who can take care of it better than I
This mind is for those who can think for themselves and make the right choices
These hands were meant to hold another’s hand out of love and compassion
Not to hold this face while tears are streaming down
I cannot live in this body
