we use to watch Fight Club together, because she said that it made her feel a little less alone, and i could never reply so i held her in my lap.

           and she told me she was kalea's dizzy mind.


and in real life, you would think nothing of anything really, because she watches the birds fly just like you do. the morning rises on the same side of her window, and she can watch the clock tick away hours, just like you.


          and she told me she was kalea's spinal cord.

i watched her pick at her fingernails for too long, and always decided i would leave as soon as they started bleeding. her arms are full of scars where she thought she felt something crawling up her skin, only to find she was still alone. i told her i was here, but she turned over(and i can still hear her uneven breathing)


        and she told me she was kalea's collapsed lungs.


it amazed me how everything reminded her of something. there was a time when she said her favorite color was orange, and a smile forced over her face. she was connected to the window the rest of the time.

         "Did you know that jack-o-lanterns are orange, and for even a little while, they are happy just to be. and then one day, their light goes out, and sometimes, you can never find that light again."


       and she told me she was kalea's broken heart.
i am kalea's shaking fingertips.

Very beautiful. I like how you gave the feeling that someone seems to be "just like you" when they have this problem.

This is... wow!
It captured my attention at first because I have done something similar (fight club reference)
But this is what could be described as heart breakingly beautiful.
You put the hurt into words that equal the emotion. which is a rare talent

I'm quite speechless to this prose:
it makes me feel sad
but it makes me feel like there's something that can be changed,
I want to cry,
but I want to keep strong and brave the things that torture me,
my heart seems to get smaller,
but I know, I really know, that it has to beat everything.
Even if it hurts, even if the tears come...

You sometimes speak for my heart, Kalea.
