I wish I was a bigger person
I wish I was a bigger person; that I could see your happiness and revel in it, but I’m just a little too small for that, a little too flawed for that, a little too hopelessly enthralled for that— you deserve to be happy, but every time you bring him up I can’t help but wish I was a bigger person.
Tanaga on anger and hate Burning like a wildfire, uncontrolled, growing dire, the flames climb ever higher; hate fuels the blazing pyre.
