stacks of books & unfinished checklists. forgetting to take time for yourself. filling days with too many drugs and not enough sleep. being between the top of a waterfall and the surface of a pool. ice cold rain that lasts for days. rediscovering love for an old hobby. sung tongs and two hits of LSD. the warm embrace of loved ones. long drives and the kindness of strangers. drinking alone in an unfamiliar place.
sometimes i'm afraid to die, but other times i'm not.
