can’t wait until i can leave this shit show; your voice has a tendency to ring in my ears until all sanity has left my body. the only thing left these days is the volatile frustration that fills my every pore, polluting the air we all breathe and choking the life out of this pathetic excuse for a home

The New World Shopping Mall has been abandoned since 1999. It shut its doors after being condemned by local regulators. A few years later a massive fire destroyed the structure’s roof. Not long after that monsoon rains flooded the lower floors.

i don’t know when the hours between midnight and sunrise suddenly scored the monopoly on bouts of insanity and noticed emptiness, because I’m sitting here in the rays of the sunset wondering why i haven’t gotten better yet
