too tired for words

It's been a long time since I've cried this much.

And I don't think I've ever cried this much in public. I tried desperately to maintain my composure, but I couldn't control the steady flow of tears.

This entire week has seemed so surreal — the fire and then, Monday night, the unexpected death of a friend.

There is so much I want to attempt to put into words, but I've spent the last four days putting out a 14-page paper and a 24-page tab, preparing for a mass distribution next week, going to funeral homes and funerals, and crying.

My eyes are so tired they hurt. Maybe after a good night's sleep my eyes, and my soul, will be able to bear putting it all into words.


  1. Sleep. You need to sleep and eat. Just shut down for a while and let it all go.

  2. i have to agree with maria.

    you're in our thoughts. xxx
