Burn your pictures now
While there’s still rage in your heart
Or they’ll end up on a shelf in a box
In your closet you can’t look in anymore.
Because the hate fades
And it won’t insulate you from the ash of the flames
The joy fades too
Once found in old memories
You have to let go to live free.
But the best advice is that
There is no advice,
No google pages or “experienced” friend
I am your experienced friend
You’re going through where I’ve already been
And I have next to nothing for you
The only thing I have to say
Is to keep living.
There’s no secret
No special healing potion.
Death means demons win
Don’t let them defeat you
If you can stay alive,
You will smile again.
