you know, i used to love reading quotesโ€”how beautiful words sound when you put them in the right place. but i donโ€™t think theyโ€™ve ever helped me. because when you read them, you imagine yourself in those magical momentsโ€”the ones you stay alive for and hold close at night, with people youโ€™ve already lost. and you carry that in every waking moment, wondering why youโ€™re so sad and how stupid you were to let them go.

they make you dream of a better life.
