Post "The Feast" - February 13th 2021, 10:25 PM

I drown myself in fantasies these days.
I gorge myself on the hope that it will all go away in an instant.
I feast upon the desire to live a life that I can never have.
I chug the hope that one day I'll wake up and feel better all of a sudden down every day like a shot,
The feeling burning my throat.
I take pitiful bites of self love, care, and hygiene.
Repulsed by the taste.
And then I bury the flavour with harm, hatred and hopelessness.
What a shameful diet.

Though it's either this, or starve.


The sunshine trapped in our hearts, it could rise again
But I'm lost, crushed
Cold and confused
With no guiding light left inside


Autism, Depression, Anxiety

expect this signature to change extremely often, i can never settle on one for long....

I really like the way this reads. I could almost hear it being read in my mind with aggression and emotion and I really enjoyed reading it. I particularly like the last four lines, which I think are really familiar to me and probably many other people. Honestly really well written - thank you so much for sharing.



A paradox:
The things you don’t need to live—
books, art, cinema, wine, and so on—
are the things you need to live

I can feel the frustration and anger in this, and it's extremely relatable.
