Ten things they’ll never tell you.
- It’s much, much worse
this way, like how can
being surrounded by family and friends
feel so god damn cruel.
- You’ll miss the smell
more than the existence.
- It’ll get better, but hell comes first.
And it lasts long.
- You’ll realize
how Alice felt when she fell.
- Even your energy drinks
start asking if you’re okay.
- And just like that last line,
- Your heartbeat feels like that.
- They never stop coming. One after the other.
All at once.
And you fight. And fight.
