the song was too much to bear.
i sent you a message.
i went to the blinds, separated them with my fingers, peeked outside. nothing but darkness and quiet.
seems the world is alone tonight.
i’ve rubbed my eyes so much my face feels like it’s peeling off. the burn is real. it hurts. it hurts all over.
i hit play again and look over.
the blinds are still swinging.
