It only took one second. One frozen moment in time where everything fell to nothing. Where everything crumbled before me. One second. It's crazy how time works. How fast it changes or stops. How in the time it takes for a dime to hit floor, your life can swirl into an unavoidable pit of despair and darkness. And how everyone expects us to run like nothing had ever happen.
