Fracture Me

Val Garayhas quotedlast month
My eyes are filling fast with tears and I blink and blink but the world is a mess and I want to laugh because all I can think is how horrible and beautiful it is, that our eyes blur the truth when we can’t bear to see it.
Val Garayhas quotedlast month
I am an hourglass.

My seventeen years have collapsed and buried me from the inside out. My legs feel full of sand and stapled together, my mind overflowing with grains of indecision, choices unmade and impatient as time runs out of my body. The small hand of a clock taps me at one and two, three and four, whispering hello, get up, stand up, it’s time to

wake up

And sometimes I think the harder I try to hold on, the more she tries to break away.

Yes. Good. Let her stay behind where she won’t get hurt.

Of course she has no idea what’s happening

A weak link can bring everything down with it, and I don’t think this is the time to be taking chances.

It’s not good to make her think she can do this kind of thing when really, it’ll probably get her killed. She’s not a soldier; she doesn’t know how to fight; and she has no idea how to use her powers, not really, which makes things even worse. It’s basically like giving a toddler a stick of dynamite and telling him to walk into a fire.

It’s raining like hell.
It’s cold and wet and muddy and shitty and I hate this.
