hello, and its nice to meet you.
im me, and you are you and lets not elaborate, for now, i just need you, anyone, to hear me.
as a person, because i am a person, right?
or is that the reason ive been struggling so?
and having said that what is it that i need you to hear?
the rest is so overrated and expected.
we all know what comes next, a breakup, an outage, a heartbreak, a new love, hope.
we are just going to use our overused phrases and pretend someone cares.
and some of them do, because lets be realistic.
because, shouldnt i be realistic, if i tell people im a realist?
so what do i tell you?
what can i tell you that you havent heard before?
explain this concept to me and then disregard me and delete it.
i dont want to hear your response, i just want to pretend.
pretend so many things.
i guess its sometimes easier that way.
but goodness, im being awfully pessimistic.
dont pity me.

i think you just managed to p

i think you just managed to put what i've been feeling for the past couple of months into words, something i've been unable to do.

reminds me of talking to my crush after months of avoiding her

Though we used to be really close...

Are you hanging on to something useless just because you think it's beautiful?
