  1. It’s sad when people get into that head-space, it’s the sickness that makes them blind to their own value, to themselves and other people. I don’t think I have ever seen a suicide (and sometimes even an attempted suicide) that wasn’t like setting a fire bomb off on all the friends and family of that person. It hits everyone.

    1. I totally agree. No one person is left unaffected by a suicide – no matter the circumstance.
      It’s just a tricky space to be in when you can’t trust the accuracy of your thoughts and feelings.
      I, for one, certainly find writing helps a great deal…🖤

  2. I read this two different ways and maybe neither is correct. One reading suggests that the narrator is ending something like a personal or professional relationship which the title aptly reflects. A second reading suggests–as the other commenters noted–a narrator with suicidal thoughts which then the title suggests the narrator’s own view of a harsh truth. Dark, but great writing either way.

    1. Inciteful as always…
      Actually, either of these readings work – although I guess my original intention was the darker context. It wouldn’t be me otherwise…
      Thank you for your kind words 🖤
