It Hurts

How are you?
– I survive.

It hurts?
– What?

Feeling like this, in short, in the balance.
– Yes, but after a while you get used to it.

Get used to what?
– To the pain, to the tears, to the sleepless nights, to the silence.
Don’t you mind letting go?

-Sometimes letting go is the only way to not suffer.
Yes, but you feel worse afterwards.

– There is never an end to the worst.
Why don’t you ask for help?

– They’re all too deaf to not hear that I’m screaming in silence.
