Holly Golightly

I'm writing an article for the bold italic and was out doing some research for it last night. I was out for about three hours when I returned home to my kitting dying. I held her in my arms as I frantically tried to rush to the pet hospital but she died as I walked to the car. I couldn't cry. I was calmly shocked. I took her to my backyard and buried her in a soft mound under my apple tree. Here she will forever rest. I went to bed and had nightmares all night of murdering and death. I silently sobbed between my horribly, fucked up dreams. I had Holly for 19 years and every night she slept snuggled in my arms, tucked at my chest. Last night was the first time in nearly two decades that I felt alone as I slept. I'm utterly heartbroken in a way that seems so indescribable. Today, is the first day of a life a tad less bright, as a light in me has gone out. Please don't call me. I don't want to, I can not talk.

  • Oh gawd, this breaks my heart. 19 years is alot of happy times. I’m sorry it ever had to end. mah.

    “To spare oneself from grief at all cost
    can be achieved only at the price of a
    total detachment, which excludes the
    ability to experience happiness.”
