drown.

Carmen, eighteen from Melbourne, Australia.

Hello there my love, may the earth kiss you with a never ending flow of kindness, because god knows you deserve it. I know living in a world so broken isn't easy, so please hold my hand and never forget that we are in this together. "I'm not interested in competing with anyone. I hope we all make it."

  • There’s a girl who chokes on tree sap
    and is learning how to breathe
    with both lungs.
    There’s a woman with a
    revolving door heart
    and an abandoned warehouse body.
    She wants to sprout wings. Grow claws.
    Use them.
    There’s a boy dreaming of carousels,
    of flying kisses and blowing rockets.
    There’s a man who likes
    to scream underwater.
    There’s a body that moves in silence.

    That same girl once felt like
    breathing was a chore.
    The woman has had a strong, sturdy
    elevator heart, before it began to
    spin off kilter.
    The carousel boy still dreams
    of Superman.
    The underwater man is trying
    desperately
    to break the surface.
    The body that moves in silence
    wants to be chaotic, wants to be loud,
    wants to get inside your head.

    There is so much we are yet to know.
    This is just a glimpse, a slither.
    There is no metaphor
    for their magnitude.
    Some people are just too big
    for language.

    “ The thing about sadness is that it never warns you that it will come back. You’ll end up with an aching heart again, minutes after laughing, and it will feel like you found someone in your house; someone who you thought had left. ”

    “ I let it go. It’s like swimming against the current. It exhausts you. After a while, whoever you are, you just have to let go, and the river brings you home. ”
