The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable
~James A. Garfield
someone told me the truth tonight… at least the truth as this person perceived it.
and it was not pleasant.
it was actually so painful.
it was delivered quickly, firmly, and unapologetically.
it made a cut, and i bled.
i bled for a few hours, actually, in the form of not being able to catch my breath and crying every last tear out of my big, swollen, puffy eyes.
right now there is not much left inside me. my heart is pale, it has bled so much.
it’s still beating, though.
still hanging on.
