She was one of those stars, a bright dot in blackness, without home, without a companion, in eternal cold and silence.

Anonymous: hi han. I hope you're doing well. lately, I've been felling really sad. I feel discontent with my life and who I am. I'm beginning to hate myself. what should I do? by the way, thank you your blog helps me out a lot ♥

Hello. I’m sorry for the late reply, but I really don’t know what to answer to these kind of questions anymore. But I couldn’t leave it unanswered… I can’t seem to find strength, petal. I’m still finding pieces of myself everyday and I don’t know where to put them. I feel as if my ache will rip my chest open quite soon, my heart is aching so much and my eyes can’t restrain my tears anymore. Seems like we’re on the same boat aren’t we? I’m really sorry, I can’t answer you with the typical postive Han answers haha. Try and contact koreyan, she knows how to soothe your soul. Good luck, my love. Oh and I’m glad my blog helps you <3.



It was particularly nice today :)

We almost made it.
I almost called you “mine,”
And you almost called me “yours.”

I think we almost loved each-other.

But the only thing I was sure about is that
wasn’t good enough.
