Oh, how selfish of myself to always say that it was more than I could take, like it was pain I could not shake, like it could break me with its fingers, throw my body in the lake, and I would slowly sink away, but the truth is it was sorrow that I made and would not face.

I am terrified of all the things I feel but cannot see.
