I remember running out of my room in my dad's oversize shirt to see her new haircut. I remember thinking that she looked too different.

I remember hiding behind the wall as I could hear my great aunt bawling. I will never forget how she wailed and how terrifying it felt. I can still hear her resounding in my ear. "What about my sister?!"

I remember Braden and Bryson hid the ball in the boys bathroom at the pool. They didn't think we had the guts. I remember Hailey and I winning and laughing as we both decided that these were the boys we would marry. I remember remembering that moment the day that she died.

I remember how poor her family was. But that night they took us to see Hairspray for the last day of my visit. For the last day I would ever see her.

I remember sleeping on the balcony so I could catch the Easter Bunny. I remember being completely terrified.

I remember my favorite place on earth: 6715 Canter Glen Court Cumming GA 30040

I remember the night Lexi moved away. She gave me a yellow rose from the bouquet she won at her ice skating competition. I remember I slept with that rose and cried all night.

I remember grandma yelling at me because I picked all the raspberries. I remember zoning out and thinking about how awesome of a grandma my mom was going to make.

I remember the night I found out about his addictions. I kept obsessing over trying to tie my hair back with that stupid elastic.

I remember how Braden held my hand in the hot tub after not seeing him for years. Our siblings talked about how fun it will be to hold hands. 

I remember getting the talk. My parents took me to Outback Steakhouse and all I cared about was getting another IBC root beer. Now every time I have one, all I can think of is sex.

I wish I could forget that moment where you almost told me 'I love you' for the first time. But decided to save it for Valentines Day.

I remember that last hike with Papa. I was the only one who stayed with him. 

I remember his funeral. I remember feeling bad for being excited to ride in a limo for the first time.

I remember when Heath finally asked me to dance in 6th grade. It was to the song "You're Beautiful" we were both shaking and smiling for the first half, then he asked me what color my toothbrush was.

I remember when I squished my hamster. I remember looking up at the garbage can where my dad disposed of it frantically mumbling: "I'm sorry I'm sorry" over and over again. I remember not knowing what to do with the blood stained shoe that kept telling me I was a murderer.

I remember how Kayla always had braided pigtails with pink balls hanging from the elastics. And I still remember how we smiled at each other after getting in trouble for talking during nap time. I then closed my eyes and was confused as to why I had a different color of skin than my best friend.

I admit it. I can't do this alone.

It was just sitting there. Waiting for me.
 Was I too prideful? Or maybe just too forgetful. Did I keep putting off this amenity thinking this virus could wait? I don’t know.
 I hated that this problem had silently infested itself into my life. But it’s become a heavy part of me. A dark place that I should never want to escape to. But I do. I do because at least it’s familiar.
All I knew was that I couldn’t let it go. I hope it’s just because I’m a coward, and not the host of a sick and twisted mind. Either way. Help was just sitting there. Sitting on that stained and chipped countertop. Rotting.
Not rotting. Gods help doesn’t rot. But it should have been. It should have been decaying with every day I ignored it. But no. It was perfect. Just patiently waiting for me to simply ask for it. Waiting for me to realize that it wasn’t as complicated as I maybe wanted it to be. Waiting for me to become strong enough to give it away. Give it to him. And move on.
It’s time.

Repeatedly robbing your love without penalties.      A new chapter is perception that life can matter.

Accidents present memory of life.                         The wild extended acquaintances.


I hope this old train breaks down
Then I could TAKE A WALK around
And, see what there is to see
And time is just a melody

All the people in the street
Walk as fast as their feet can take them

I just ROLL through town
And though my windows got a view

The frame I'm looking through

Seems to have no concern for now
So for now

I need this

Old train to breakdown

Oh PLEASE just
Let me please breakdown

This engine screams out loud

Centipede gonna crawl westbound

So I don't even make a sound
Cause it's gonna sting me when I leave this town
All the people in the street
If these tracks don't bend somehow
 And I got no time 
 That I got to get to 
To where I don't need to be

 Where I don't need to be 

So I

I NEED this

Old train to breakdown

Oh please just
Let me please breakdown
I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me please breakdown
I wanna break on down
But I cant stop now
Let me break on down

But you cant stop nothing

If you got no control

Of the thoughts in your mind
That you kept in, you know
You don't know nothing
But you don't need to know
The wisdoms in the trees
Not the glass windows
You cant stop wishing
If you don't LET GO
But things that you find
And you lose, and you know
You keep on rolling
Put the moment on hold
The frames TOO BRIGHT
So put the blinds down low

I need this

Old train to breakdown

Oh please just
Let me please breakdown
need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh PLEASE just
Let me please breakdown
I wanna break on down
But I cant stop now

-Jack Johnson
