I feel like a crumbling building, so I create.

I take paintbrushes and, even though I have no built skill in drawing or painting, I make bumpy edges to soft drawings with water. I smile when it resembles my reference photo.

I take my guitar and sing, sometimes songs that are already written and sometimes songs that I'm writing.

I take my pen and write poems, a stream of consciousness, or letters to her. I, like my brush, paint her in what I imagine her to be inside of my heart like some sort of caveman. It's a crude and strongly misrepresentative, but it's honest.

These are just ways to build more bricks, and so far today I've built more than I've crumbled.

Why the hell can’t I meet people like you? Where is your species hiding? If I could just find 3 people who have hearts the size of the universe and who are as sensitive and emotionally intelligent as me, I’d be in great fucking shape.

1. I'm only showing you, and the rest of the internet, parts of me. While I try to be kind, loving, and geniune, there are many parts of me that fail. I might not be who you imagine.

2. The kind of person you're probably think of is incredibly hard to find. It gets easier as we move from say high school to university, or from a small town to a large city, but people like that are still rare. Patience is usually key.

3. I'm in Canada haha!

And I spelt my name wrong, that's embarassing.
