Heartbreak is my constant companion.
Dreams that didn’t and won’t ever come true walk beside me every day like ghosts.
Sometimes they walk quietly, matching my every step, brushing against me softly to make sure I know they’re still there.
Sometimes something gives them more strength, and then they shriek and cling to every part of me as they try to pull me down under the earth.
Sometimes I want to give up and let them.
