I’ve things to do today:
I must crush memory down,
I must turn my heart to stone,
I must try living, again.
Anna Akhmatova, The Sentencing
And it’s not that I’m so unhappy I don’t want to live any more. That’s not what it feels like. It feels more like I’m tired and bored and the party’s gone on too long and I want to go home.
Nick Hornby (via endangerment)
I am not a sad story.
I am trying to learn to stop living like one.
Some days I still think this is poetic,
and I hate myself for it.
I am going to write a love poem one day,
and it’s going to be all about myself.
