‘This is my suicide dress,’ she told him. ‘I only wear it on days when I'm afraid I might kill myself if I don’t wear it.’ ‘But you’ve been wearing it everyday since we’ve met,’ he said. (Denver Betson)

And in the beginning, my lungs had too much air in them, whenever you were near, like I could never breathe out enough. And in the end, my throat closed, whenever you were far, like I could never breathe in again.

Despite my previous vain attempts at making bucket lists, my incurable case of laziness and my overwhelming lack of motivation to accomplish goals or anything else for that matter, I have decided to conjure yet another one of those so-called impossible lists. But just to spice things up, this particular list has to have a theme. Thus, this shall now be referred to as "Marielle's Impossible Senior Year Bucketlist (aka the list she'll just give up on after approximately two or meh three days but she'll try her hardest to do otherwise pinky swear)". So, here goes nothing:

  • walk through a drive thru
  • make a little video documentary of my last week of school
  • eat five burgers in the cafeteria in one sitting
  • eat a fruit that came from the campus gro...

"So she became impulsive, scared by her inaction into perpetual action."

  • i wanted you to stay, and i’m sorry that i make it impossibly difficult for you to do exactly that
  • but just so you know, you haven't been such a good sport lately either
  • shall we call it even then?
  • on to other (insignificant) matters: isn't it an awful shame to see everything you've ever worked hard for go spiraling down the drain?
  • not that i've never experienced that feeling before
  • trust me, if there's an award for failing most things consecutively, i'd be the obvious frontrunner (might even be first but i'd fail at that too)
  • i'd say that i was joking except that i'm not
  • i'm dead serious like seriously

  • what remains is absence
  • a perpetual nothing
  • my heart is an empty vessel that can never be filled
  • self-destruction is beautiful, in a sad and tragic kind of way
  • stop spacing out it's ridiculous
  • feeling nothing, and then everything, and then nothing again
  • blue is a nice color
  • your encouraging words meant nothing and continue to be hollow
  • lower your expectations of me, please i beg of you
  • realizing your own dispensability
  • lying in bed for hours on end thinking of what is sad or nonexistent
  • cold void filled with horrific overwhelming feelings of delusional frenzies and detachment
  • when will it end

n. the inexplicable urge to push people away, even close friends who you really like — as if all your social tastebuds suddenly went numb, leaving you unable to distinguish cheap politeness from the taste of genuine affection, unable to recognize its rich and ambiguous flavors, its long and delicate maturation, or the simple fact that each tasting is double-blind.
