i don't know why i wear mascara when it always ends up on my cheeks by night.

the moon is full but i am not. i'm hungry but it's mostly my eyes. i want to eat the city and the lights, swallow stars and coins in the fountains.

instead i'm alone in my apartment, with no glass but small windows facing the brick walls of my neighbours. i am empty except for the bricks which weigh heavily and hollowly at once. i swallow nothing but city air and exhaust, fumigating my lungs in hopes of eradicating the lacke thereof.

i am full of tears that were locked up since i was sixteen, pressurised in the marrow of my bones to the point of begrudging congestion. bitterness is what makes eyelashes grow-- there should be no surprise that i can't see.

The whole thing's brilliant, but I really fucking love this line.

Love the last sentence--one could write a piece based on that sentence alone!

The idea of tears trapped in bone marrow is really beautiful. Very pretty.
