You Look Like You’ve Seen A Ghost by Valerie Parente
It’s very surreal
when the thing that haunted you for 10 months
is confirmed to be real.
It’s very relieving
when the thing that made you question your sanity
was worth believing.
It’s very humbling
when the thing you swore you knew beyond a doubt
was not for nothing.
It’s very comforting
when the hurt and the heal and the hope you achieved
has a little company.
