I'd like to introduce you to the person that lives inside me. She sleeps inside my chest right next to my heart. When she's awake, she'll start pawing at my heart. Playing the strings like a harp, sometimes even bouncing it up and down like a child with a bouncy ball except it hurts. Those are the days I bite my nails the most. Except she'll start screaming, saying that no boy will ever like a girl that bites her nails. When she's feeling adventurous, she'll climb my spine and make her way to my brain. She's in full control those days. We fights all the time, and everytime she wins and I give in to her words she grows. She's getting big now, I'm afraid that one day she'll outgrow her home. I'm not sure what happens when the person inside you grows to be your size. Is that the point that leads people to suicide?
