"They were careless people...they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby


you can’t be by yourself

you can’t be by yourself
they kept you in the dark
in a room with nothing sharp
until you were well
you told me that you were so
scared of what they know
but love isn’t afraid
love is using your first name
in the poems that I wrote

Guess who’s back,
Back again,
Oh yeah that’s right. It’s the low swings and depression. That’s who’s back. Welcome.
