Night Mist - Adrian Von Ziegler
Do you know what it is to love? Do you know what it’s like to need someone? To hold on to them so tight that the only way you could leave was if you cut off your hand? To be so close to someone you two were like conjoined twins.
Do you know how hard it is to lose someone like that? To say goodbye to forever. Do you know what it’s like having to cut off your right hand and act like it doesn’t hurt? To have to become alone, to stand by yourself.
Do you know what it is like to wear a mask every day? To paste a smile on your face and act like everything’s okay. Do you know how to keep your tears from falling and keep your hurt from surfacing? Do you know how to act like you’re not tired when really you could sleep for years?
Do you know how to keep your pain locked inside the prison of your smile. To be “fine” when you’re dying. How do you act like you don’t feel anything when your drowning in your pain and burning in your depression? How do you pretend to be happy?
