Fuck you world

Dear world,

Suck my cock. Suck it down and choke on it until you die.

Everywhere I turn, everything I read, all I see is darkness.

Depression, separation, death, pain, suffering, misery, sadness, anguish.

So many people are writing about their depression or their pain. So many of my friends. People I care about fiercely.

Two weeks, I saw a plea for help.

Last week, I read about a relationship being questioned.

On Monday, I saw a retreat from the world.

On Tuesday, my best friend was broken. She’s rebuilding, but I fear that her optimism will never be the same. That her capacity for love has been damaged. That her light has dimmed.

On Wednesday, I got to listen to a close friend sob while she shoved her dead cat into her freezer until she could dispose of him the next morning.

I just can’t do it. I don’t want to see what horrors Thursday has to bring. But I have to. I have to be the boss. The friend. The spouse. The party organizer. The comedian. The consistent one. The reliable one.

And I will. Because that’s what I do.
