How to Be a Fictional Character
exist. you are a blank state; and the love you feel will never be enough.
make poor choices. your sense of justice is surely misguided.
fall apart. your story is romanticized and your tears fall on desensitized ears.
die. was it even worth it, you'll never know.
return to the living. if it's your brain or your soul or something else, you'll breathe again.
be confused. you don't understand these misplaced memories or fleeting feelings, or the decisions you think you made.
understand. it all comes falling into place, where you had been, what you were. it's like electricity in your blood.
let go. this is your redemption and now you have to move on.
let go. your world is gone.
let go. it's behind you now.
let go. they're never coming back.
