Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.
I want to say more, but don’t know what the words are supposed to be. I feel such a tenderness for these vulnerable nighttime conversations, the way words take a different shape in the air when there’s no light in the room.

But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more.
