You want me to be a tragic backdrop so that you can appear to be illuminated, so that people can say ‘Wow, isn’t he so terribly brave to love a girl who is so obviously sad?’ You think I’ll be the dark sky so you can be the star? I’ll swallow you whole.
One of my professors told me that the most intelligent people are often the saddest and most depressed because they actually understand how shitty the world is.
Thank you for this post…
