Marah is an 18-year-old living in one of Syria’s besieged cities. For her own safety, she writes here under a pen name.
Losing family, sleep, friends, and ourselves.
Lots of change, and it’s slightly disconcerting.
What does love feel like? And other questions.
Happiness is hard to find.
Everything is so much clearer than before.
What’s new? Everything! And nothing.
Bodies in pain.
Who knows which way to go?
Making it work.
No dreams, new dreams, old dreams, daydreams.
