ICU Registered Nurse. Atheist. Bookworm. Jill-of-all-arts.

My patient is intubated and sedated and is therefore my favorite person on the whole unit right now.

Just leave me the fuck alone. Please. I can’t be funny tonight and small talk is making me want to die.

There must be something strangely sacred in salt. It is in our tears and in the sea.

Currently crying over a sock, a cup, and an ashtray full of cigarette butts from September.

I am the most sentimental fuck on the planet.

“Do you remember the way the girls
would call out “love you!”
conveniently leaving out the “I”
as if they didn’t want to commit
to their own declarations.

And I agree that the “I” is a pretty heavy concept”

He exhausts me and I don’t love him. Only boys I love are allowed to exhaust me.

We’re all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing.
