daylight rolls its eyes at me

The ocean

I remember the people I miss haven’t died. I remember the new people who’ve begun to pour the foundation of my safe places. I remember the darkness is temporary.

I remember Annelie said I am a fish and people are my water. Swim, Shannon; stop puttering on the beach. I remember it’s been 7 months. I remember sleep helps. I remember 24 hours ago I wasn’t consumed by this loneliness and all that’s changed is my penchant to drown in feeling. I remember it’s going to be ok. Even when the darkness brings loneliness again, it’s going to be ok.
