Trippin all night long, to the break of dawn.
I remember one time my senior year
I was in the middle of a breakdown of my own at 2am.
As I was having a panic attack
my friend called me crying and asked if
I’d take her to the hospital and not tell anybody.
I pulled myself out of my own forest fire and went to pick her up.
When I got to her house she met me outside and
the sleeves to her sweater were bloody
and she was quietly crying,
but when she gor in the car I didn’t ask any questions.
I didn’t need to.
The silence spoke for both of us.
I stayed beside her in the hospital for 9 hours,
Held her hand,
and I hugged her a few times.
She saved me from my own demons
for the night
By allowing me to save her from her demons
for the night.
