We get into the swing of things; meeting total strangers and telling them your life story because they would probably listen not judging you by default. For a moment they replace all the real people in your life and give you a safe of belonging, surely we are all victims of it.
Staying up all night, endlessly scrolling through her text messages wondering who to text

When all she’s ever really wanted was an attentive ear, proving shelter to rest in
Little she tells them, that she can see right through their skin…
