Our Vacant Illusion
"All the people we used to know, they're all but an illusion to me now."
Kate's life has not been a great one; but even with the recent diagnoses of her depression, her struggles in her past and her already broken self-image. She still tries though, every day, to mutter up the strength to put on a happy face... Nevertheless, that too, soon ceases, when something happens to the person she thought she would forever love. Something that breaks her past the point of which she cannot return unscathed by and be "normal" again; and something that contributes to her already drowning state. "Because being admitted means that she has to admit to herself, that she's already broken."
Meeting her downfall, she becomes a version she thought she would never be, and is pushed into a place that deep down, she always feared.
Even so, perhaps there is still hope. Perhaps the rim of sunshine around the dark clouds surrounding her, is reachable. And maybe, just possibly, the stranger who's attempting to save her as much as he can, while still trying to save himself, will make the darkness go away?
The question still stands, though...Will they be able to save each other? Or are they destined to be broken forever?
It's all, still, but a vacant illusion.
