A Farewell Letter To My Loyal Friend

It’s 3 in the morning. The sound of silence and uncertainty is sonorous, it startled you awake. Your eyes, wide open, darted at the empty space of the ceiling as you started pondering about your current state.

You took a deep breath and instead of positivity, you inhaled all the possible negativities that this lifetime could offer you. You didn’t want to, but you can’t help but welcome the feeling of being constantly dubious. Sucks, right? Slowly losing your control, you unconsciously became a marionette of anxiety, going to the direction where the thin and fragile strings tell you to. Trying your best to run through the right path, the puppeteer pulls you back to the opposite side. You looked up to check whoever controls you. There was no one but a huge mirror.

You glared at your own likeness and saw your eyes as it waters. And just like that, tears came gushing out like rain. Upon looking at your own reflection, you later realized that no one is stopping you from being genuinely blissful but you. Fears are slowly eating and leading you to sadness and misery. It is unfortunate how it is something that you simply have no control over.

In the silence of your heart, you deeply prayed, “Tomorrow another day starts anew and I hope to permanently say goodbye to you, my loyal friend. Goodbye, anxiety.”

Love,

Once A Marionette

When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.

You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.

You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
