“What people don’t know, is how hard living on the edge is.
You spend all day, happy beyond belief. Nothing can go wrong, and if it does, you brush it off. You admire the beauty in how the clouds shine pink for a few seconds as the sun disappears. You laugh at the group of duck quacking across the road. You are full of warmth and love for where you are and everyone in your life.
And in a split second, that crumbles.
Suddenly you’re in tears because the sky has never looked so blue and the colour consumes you. You mourn for the constant chase the moon has with the sun and you sob over how nature is so beautiful and you are not.
One minute, there is no edge and you have nothing to fear.
The next, you’ve slipped into the abyss and the faux happiness you were living in breaks under the pressure of the black clouds in your head.”
