Oh! How beautiful, nice, cool, gentle, kind he was (and still is). He was all I could dream of. I knew he would be my path to happiness even though he was my first passion.
Oh, yes, the uneasy heartbeat every time he stared at me or when we touched or even in my all-too-sweet dreams. It was as if it were just a matter of time to our wedding.
But he was cruel with my naive dreams...
I, being the kid that I was (in fact, I was the youngest of the class), tried as hard as I could to be near him, talk to him, touch him, cut a strand of hair so that I would have something to worship.
He got mad. He wouldn't even look at my face. And the angrier he got, the sadder and needier I got. I was digging my tomb. But I couldn't do anything else: he was my only deity, and I was his volunteer slave.
But then, as everything was turning darker and darker, and the despite for live was growing astonishingly and all my hopes were being demolished, I thought my most relieving thought: if there's no hope left and I admit I myself am rotten, then there's no doubt, it's time to save myself from all the suffering.
And so did I try, many times.
Nowadays, I survive only because of drugs. There's the lithium, to level my mood, there's the risperidone, to make me want to live, there's passiflora, to make me relax and, last but definitely not least, there's escitalopram, the famous "happy pills".
If you ask me if I regret having tried suicide, I'd answer you by saying: what a pity that I didn't succeed.
