I tried.
i swear, i tried really f*****g hard.
i tried to get up and walk again.
i tried not to sit there in the corner and cry anymore.
but you were really good at it. you made sure to inject self loathing in my bones so deep that i couldn't come out of it no matter how hard i tried.
i lost everything. my family, my friends, my own soul. i felt like a d**n ghost in my own body.
it didn't feel like home. nothing did.
but then i took to words. i penned down every single emotion on paper and let it fly off in the wind. i started writing like crazy. like i had to pour everything out or else i'd die. like it was my only saviour.
i wrote in the hope that someone out there will catch hold of these papers and would send some love back to me via this same wind. after that, whenever i felt wind caressing my cheeks or playing with my hair, i felt loved.
everything changed.
everything seemed bright now.
i wasn't jumping and dancing and singing but i wasn't drowning anymore.

so i realised that a day will come when your days will be unbearably too long, your nights will be too quiet, and the floor will feel too cold on your skin, and you won’t have any other choice but to pick yourself up, kick your feet up, and rise up again.
because really, how long will you stay down, waiting, crying, and moping around when you’re the only one who can decide to save yourself?
