i owned every second this world could give

A playlist to commemorate the truly awesome week I had at Camp Sunshine for the 2015 FA Family Meeting. I met so many great people, and I just wanted something to bring back the feeling of being home.

I’ve never wanted to beat somebody over the head with a piece of writing and go, ‘Understand me! This is about this!’ because once you’ve written something down, you no longer own it. The person who reads it owns it and they, hopefully, will own something different to what you wrote, the things that fill in the space between the valleys and the peaks of the words on the page. Whatever you find, and whatever you own, I hope that the act of finding it makes you feel less alone.
Today.
Today has been the worst so far,
I woke up and I didn’t think about you.
Yet a few hours later, something triggered and I broke.
I think it was St. Andreas street.
Remember it?
The place we first met and had our first kiss?
Because I do, and after that, I just couldn’t stop crying.
—  It still hurts, but you don’t care anyway.
