858 : Unfinished

never thought you’d read another line from this account. thought I’d post the last of the images I saved in drafts before I left. this isn’t a come back.

857 : Untitled

the only thing I can tell you is remain humble. don’t be so pretentious. there will always be people above and below you. stay humble.

I guess I’ve returned to a mantra of understanding.

Isolation is a way to know ourselves.
― Franz Kafka
856 : Cringe

looking back on a lot of writing I did. a lot of it is really sappy and embarrassing, but I won’t delete it. from the beginning I set out to write truthfully, or as truthfully as I’d allow myself to be consciously. I read the old writings when I started this relationship, and I cringe at the pure sap. I don’t regret feeling the way I did, in fact I’d like to think I feel stronger now, just not as vocal. I’d like to think that I’ve crossed a threshold of acting rather than speaking.

855 : Dissolve

I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve nothing to write on as I’ve done nothing since the break started. I’ve spent a lot of time dissolving in this room.

Having perfected our disguise, we spend our lives searching for someone we don’t fool.

― Robert Brault
We assume others show love the same way we do — and if they don’t, we worry it’s not there.
