Have you ever had someone you love
Take their own life?
Shock sets in first.
The feeling that reality is something that you left in the dust behind you.
And in the coming weeks, part of you will hold on to that.
Part of you will hold on to that so strongly that you will keep looking at the door every time it makes a noise expecting him to walk in, only to see that it’s another person – here to
remind you that he’s dead and gone express their condolences – when all you want is to forget that this is real. The shock never goes away.
Part of you will always be in disbelief.
You will want to cry – but you won’t.
Because you can’t.
You can’t cry over what didn’t really happen right?
Then, you will.
The tears will come suddenly. You will not be able to stop them, nor will you want to.
Get used to it.
Every little thing that goes wrong – every little thing that goes right – will bring more tears.
You will cry for hours, days, weeks, maybe even months.
You’ll hate yourself for crying so much, you’ll start to think that all these people – none of these people…
None of these people understand
You’ll be angry at them – at yourself.
WHY DO THEY KEEP REMINDING ME!?
STOP ASKING ME IF I’M OKAY
I AM NOT…
But I will be…
Goodbye dad…I miss you…
