3days. I was a year awhile back now I'm back to days




Life is too

Short to spend

It at war with

Yourself.

I’m catching stars in the sky because I am fixing the soul within me. May it be from the heart a girl broke years ago or my soul simply repairing itself as it was shattered on my walk on this earth. May the stardust fill those cracks within my soul making me brand new, but never forgetting who I once was.

6 days and 15 hours. Had multiple close ones today of picking up blade then putting it down. Of having urges in the form of images and stopping myself from acting on it. It is like trying to get a goat to not graze on someone else's grass! Self discipline and even more- disciplining something that is wild and has a mind of its own.
