It started with a pill. Just one. That’s all it ever takes. One pill to take the feeling away. One pill to stop the pain.

Warnings were sent, but you said I was treating you like an addict. Kindness was tried, but you said I was being mean. Toughness was tried, but you didn’t listen.

You didn’t listen, you didn’t want to. You wouldn’t let me help you. I tried, you didn’t care. I was there, you never noticed.
