“I. I was the first person to teach you that love was not always a white light to a ship lost at sea.
— I wrote out six messages, then erased them all (via pacifism)
II. On my worst days, the sky was a festering wound that wouldn’t heal. I didn’t want to be that to you.
III. On my worst days, you were the only word I could say without clenching my fists.
IV. I really did love you, I just couldn’t claw my way out of the ground to do it properly.
V. None of this was your fault.
VI. I’m sorry I was your lighthouse. I’m sorry you couldn’t see the wall of rocks on my shore.”
This is incredibly upsetting to me.
I don’t want to come across as mean or rude, but ever since I first posted this I keep getting notifications of people getting upset over this picture, and saying things like “that’s no way to live”, “the government should do something about this”…etc.
Does no one realize the picture was taken on a lean? The houses are built on a hill, they actually stand straight up. The photographer has been VERY bloody clever, and turned their camera to make the road look horizontal.
The houses are perfectly sound, perfectly vertical. So take a deep breath, calm down, and appreciate the creativity in this piece of photography.
lol more people need to go to san francisco , actually don’t…. we don’t want you
