I don't have a coat.

Every time I go outside, I shiver and hope that my destination is close.
My phantom limbs and memories almost keep me warm, but not quite.

Today, I realized that I treated you the way my father treats me.

In the end, it's important to acknowledge that the strongest feeling will always be the one of self-need. Beyond love, beyond concern, the utterly human, and utterly horrible feeling of need comes first.
We try and control the ones closest to us for that very reason.

I treated you like he treated me, like his father treated him, like I treated him, like we all treated each other.
