Talk To Me About

Talk to me about being sad. Tell me about the ache, the pain, the weight of fate that takes and takes until there’s nothing left. Talk to me about “Tomorrow’s another day.” As if you’d opened your eyes to nothing there, talk to me about being sad. Talk to me about being loved. Tell me [...]
