Where do we go to find peace when those we love continue to crumble and fall despite our best efforts or intentions? How to find solace when past decisions stand unyielding with fresh honed blades before every doorway but the ones we cannot imagine taking? How can a person be expected to say goodbye to friends that never became as close as I should have let them?
Wine swallows fast and only polishes pain.
I try to get lost in books but find myself reading Night again and again.
I never wanted to stay here but now that the end is coming I cannot stand the thought. The journey won’t kill me but the same might not be true for him.
And the hardest part is proving to not be saying goodbye. If the end would come, at least it would be over.
Hope’s blade is proving to be the sharpest and shallow cuts inflicted slowly always cause the most pain.
