i will not tire of you.

Shards of pain:
My god mother used to live in Zhi Hui's share house and she had a dog (maybe even a bit like Cinnamon). This both breaks and heals my heart...our uni had a Rad Sex & Consent Week last semester and yesterday in a haze of dissociation I wrote in my diary: consent is not rad - it's a legal requirement!...my joint pain has flared again (toes, ankles, wrists, fingers) and I forgot how painful, exhausting, frustrating and disabling physical pain can be...my eyes are too sore to write more than a few lines today. I'm sorry.

Your body
Hurts me as the world hurts God.
