Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
— Advice to Sylvia Plath, from her mother (via tellmefive)
I feel like ripping apart my skin,
and searching for a reason for why
I feel this empty.
Maybe my veins are tangled,
or something is lodged
in my ribcage.
Because it feels like
something inside of me is
missing or broken.
