    We'd lie in bed after the sex
    Your arms around me, my life line
    Then you'd joke and poke my ribs
    "nothing but skin and bones!"
    Where I saw fat, you saw thin

    I pushed you away, my life line
    Now you don't reply to my texts and I
    don't feel like I can go into the shop again
    For fear of what you now think

    I need you now, my life line
    To catch me before I fall again
    My wings are too tattered and broken
    to hold me up yet again
    But I pushed you away

    Our innocence is lost
    I opened up the door of my past just a little
    And you slammed it in my face
    Where are you now, my life line
    As I lie here, shattered, broken
    Where are you now, Nathan?

    I want to fix it...but I don't know how to. I text him, he doesn't reply. But I'm afraid to be open when we're face-to-face

    I wish I knew what would work in this circumstance, especially ones with many variables like this. Being open can be extremely difficult. What I'm trying to say is I can relate. This is a great time to wish you good luck in opening up to him when the next opportunity arises. You have my support when you try to open up to him in person.

    Sincerely,

    Alex

    It's hard though, because he knows about the cutting and the not eating
    But he acts like it's nothing
    He used to cut, he has depression, he belittles my suicidal thoughts
    But...I can see in him a pillar of strength
    But I don't know if he's strong enough for me

    I understand. I hope you two have a nice long talk that gives you a better idea of where you two stand.

    It's doubtful, since he's "closed off" to me right now.
