Walter Pater, Pico della Mirandola, in: The Renaissance. Studies in Art and Poetry, 1871

i regret talking to you on that midsummer night, offering help when you’re in dire need of a way out, spent time prioritizing you instead of my own needs, like- what on earth was i thinking?

it consumed me slowly, you narcissist. isn’t it hypocritical to say and shame people that acts the same as you do?

these realizations won’t do any change with what already happened however, it can, help avoid future complications. thanks for the lesson sir, i’d glady take notes.

starshine and clay,
my one hand holding tight
my other hand; come celebrate
with me that everyday
something has tried to kill me
and has failed.
