I don’t need someone to love me.
I need a painkiller. Someone who’ll make me forget everything,and everything I’ve gone through. Someone who’ll make me blank, siphon all the dirt away until I don’t remember it being there in the first place.
I need someone to help me breathe and teach my limbs to move and my heart to beat again. I don’t need commitment and passion and hope; I need nothingness, patience and someone to lose myself in and drown in.
I need someone to take me away from myself.
If that sounds like you: Congratulations, you’re no longer single.
