Want leaves a hole.
I grow weary of swimming to its edge.
Hunger never fed
because of something someone said.
Tired, I sink to the depths.
So be it then.
Better to face a social death,
than to waste an ounce of breath.

This piece resonates to my core, hitting every nerve I have. The tremendous impact of words is absolutely unmistakable. They're powerfully piercing and can be used to cut and purposefully maim when being wielded as harsh brutal weapons while at the same time they're able to caress, soothe or excite to move hearts, minds and souls, deeply.... It all hinges on whoever's wielding.
I hope you're able to find some peace and resolution, my friend
I don't wish that kind of strife on anyone.
Best wishes sent your way... ✨

You laid down some pipe Jay.
Wouldn't want to get in your way.

hello dearest Jay don't let it get to you just be yourself
and fuck them if they don't like it
I've been very popular here then rat packed
because one person didn't like me sticking for myself
so if we are villains let's be the best ones we can...
I care about you so stay strong...

This resonates so much!! (Am socially phobic, but it would even if I weren't). We all have those holes sometimes, and are capable of spiralling downwards. I suppose the way forward is to work out how to fulfil some of those needs and start on an upwards spiral, but it's OK to stay there for a bit.
