arteries will always hold a special place in my heart

Anxiety has made me do embarrasing things >.


Anxiety attacks are the worst because sometimes you have no idea why you’re crying or angry and you just think of everything wrong in your life and you can’t control it all you can do is breath in and out and cry it out


bare feet in uncut grass, abandoned houses, walking in the rain without an umbrella, empty train carriages, smiling at strangers, books with cracks in their spines, the first day of Spring, finding pressed flowers you’d forgotten about.

Phosphenes n. the stars and colors you see when you rub your eyes.


Mako stirs from sleep to a grey drizzle and brushes away the gravel pressed into his skin.  The city is slowly rousing from a sluggish haze too, satomobiles sounding like rolling waves in the distance. The newspapers he’d laid down as bedding last night are soaked, but the headlines are still legible. A child was born two days ago, on Air Temple Island, the whole world hushed to see if the spirits have blessed her with the gift of wind. 

He puts the papers away and goes to wake Bolin. It looks like it will rain harder later.
