I would love to say
weak in the knees
to be quite upfront
make my body
it has knees

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up.

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
