Brian’s Thoughts
I don’t know what to think… I feel her hugging me and crying with me. Does she even get that she’s killing me? I can’t sleep. I can’t stop thinking about her and me together.
Sometimes I get wasted just so I can black out and get some relief for a while. Is that what being dead feels like? Huh, maybe dead is the way to go.
