I never spent that much time on this poem. It just... it described the way I felt. My sister was seriously ill at the time and I'd been worrying and worrying for weeks to the point where I just... wore a mask around my pain. I thought of this on the car ride to the hospital to visit her, remembered it later, and wrote it down.

I'm sorry for your loss.. I guess you can understand how hard it is to deal with this then. It's so easy to break down and let it overwhelm you, but for her sake we have to stay strong and positive. Thank you

@callmeSPONGEBOB *hugs you* I wish her and your family luck. My friend starved herself to death *sings Tied together with a smile by Taylor Swift*

@BreakingTheCliche She isn't better yet, she has an eating disorder, but she's at least out of the hospital for now so.. I'm thankful for that. :)

This is sad, yet good. You wrote that your sister was sick in the description, I hope she is better or getting better </3
