“You don’t ask people with knives in their stomachs what would make them happy; happiness is no longer the point. It’s all about survival; it’s all about whether you pull the knife out and bleed to death or keep it in…”

“Sometimes all you can do is try. Here are my hands, here I am sharpening my fingers into claws, here I am scratching at the wall. Beating my head against the bricks. I’ve forgotten how to make myself transparent. To be ghostly, to float through ceilings and floors. I don’t know how to escape the weight of my body anymore. Here are my organs hanging inside this closet of flesh, here I am feeling slaughtered. Raw and much too human.”
— Anita O. // Déjà Vu
