Death. The biggest mystery of life.
The ones who smile the brightest hide the deepest sorrow.
Straight and fast.
– Looking for Alaska by John Greene
She was different
But they fought her how to blend in
Now they are all the same
I read because I have no friends
Some mysteries lie better unsolved.
Forfeiting a match before you even know the outcome.
It is the low way around.
The coward's path, the shortcut.
But no one can deny that it takes a ton of courage,
to swallow those pills,
to light that match,
to take the final leap,
to squeeze the trigger...
A hell more of courage than I have.
A cold heart can never learn to thaw.
An unheard symphony.
Whistling in my ears,
As it tousles my hair.
Feet leave the ground
Adrenaline coursing through my veins.
but still seeing everything.
I should be afraid,
But I am alive,
The roller coaster
Sliding into an abrupt halt.
I stepped off.
I had flown.
