current read
march 23, 1914 i never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other peoples minds as something strictly fluid and non perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person. -Franz Kafka

My writing was all about you; all I did there, after all, was to bemoan what I could not bemoan upon your breast.

Tw: anxiety.
“To what purpose, April. do you return again?”
Tumblr media
I’ve been cold for a very long time. That I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to shake the remnants of all the winters I went through…
As years passed by I managed to accumulate enough icicles to replace my own heart I like referring to this as anxiety.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
It saddens me to think of how as a child i lived without naming a constant in my life. But that’s not my point. April is.
April, for a month of hope it reminds me so much of an anxiety attack… It even starts with a lie !
If you ever experienced, or even witnessed an anxiety attack I’m sure you’ve heard something along the lines of: “Breathe !” “You’ll be okay” or “Everything is going to be fine”
In the couple of times I allowed someone to hold me through one, I convinced myself that they’re lying to calm themselves.
Focused more on the desire to squeeze my heart cause maybe just maybe, my tears will wash out all the dirt and then I’ll breathe again, I’ll exist again.
But the fear of freezing my hands by touching my heart always stopped me.
Tumblr media
The earth is shaking it’s heartbeat is so loud.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Oh, to be that child again. To Let the light wash over me even if it can’t survive inside.
Cause now that I’m older and I know that
"I exist, In thousands of agonies--I exist.”
I wish I knew what to do to bloom just like the earth.
To start all over again, isn’t it my time yet ?
Tumblr media
I don’t care that I’m surrendering to hope once more and it my hurt me again, I’m only human, i want to heal.

More Kafka.
“April 27. Incapable of living with people, of speaking. Complete immersion in myself, thinking of myself. Apathetic, witless, fearful. I have nothing to say to anyone - never.”
“People label themselves with all sorts of adjectives. I can only pronounce myself as 'nauseatingly miserable beyond repair'.”
“This tremendous world I have inside of me. How to free myself, and this world, without tearing myself to pieces. And rather tear myself to a thousand pieces than be buried with this world within me.”
“2 November. This morning, for the first time in a long time, the joy again of imagining a knife twisted in my heart.”
“I feel an unhappiness which almost dismembers me, and at the same time am convinced of its necessity”
“I am more uncertain than I ever was; I feel only the power of life. And I am senselessly empty.”

 Forget everything. Open the windows. Clear the room. The wind blows through it. You see only its emptiness, you search in every corner and don’t find your-self.

[ID: August 12. Didn't sleep at all. Lay three hours in the afternoon on the sofa, sleepless and apathetic; the same at night. But it mustn't thwart me. End ID]

I am tired, I don’t know anything. All I want is to put my face in your lap, feel your hand moving around my head and just stay that way forever. -Franz Kafka
