Whhhyyyyy ammmm IIII doingggg thissss????
Ok. Ok. Let’s try again.
I’M PUTTING DOWN IN WORDS.
These are the thoughts of Ziazan M. My words. My recollections of the days.
And I know I’m starting on day xxx but in all honesty this could be day 26, or day one, or day 9999. It doesn’t matter. All that matters is that I am recording my thoughts.
I am recording my thoughts because it is A Good Thing To Do. And it will Help Me Process.
Because if I don’t-
You see, the thing is, this is the day that I decided to come clean and open up and put down on paper the way I’m feeling but now...now that I’m here, fingers on keys, staring at the cursor with its relentless bip bip bip
Blotches of ink exploded on the heavy paper I use (used) for work; small mushroom clouds in pink, red, blue.
I’m sorry. I can’t do this.
