Sometimes you need all the distractions to keep you alive, because you have tasted the saltiness of the sea just as you started drowning; you can’t let the emotions do their thing; you won’t survive that.
Sometimes you need the blaring music to deafen you, because the screams of your own soul terrify you.
Sometimes it is necessary to stay in the dark; the hidden ghosts can do you no harm when compared to your own shadows.
Sometimes it is necessary to listen to your mind against your heart and walk away, because even if you stay, the other person won’t; they probably won’t even turn back. The 3 over abused words “I love you” are the most powerful in this world, but they can leave you devastated, if not said back.
Sometimes it is necessary to watch yourself bleed, and feel the pain- really live the pain because it will stop you from cutting yourself again.
Sometimes it is okay to desperately believe in the lies because the truth will burn you alive.
And sometimes it is easier to be lost, to be the unknown face in the crowd, because being found means having an identity- a name- a past- a story that you want to forget, and if you don’t, you won’t remember anything ever again!
