sadness is like a cold hug.
it is tears running down your face
and you haven’t been able to smile in 24 hours.
it is laying in bed until you have to get out
and even then,
maybe you don’t get up.
it is wearing sweatpants because you don’t care enough
to look nicer.
it is listening to sad music on repeat
it is the only thing you can relate to.
it is feeling like you are alone
in a room full of people who love you
it is feeling lonely
at 10:30 in the morning
because the only thing that has hugged you in the past 24 hours
is your blanket.
Always remember you are not alone.
You are loved.
