My life has so many sounds.
The sound of my heart snapping.
My nerves fraying.
My universe being ripped from my hands.
The blood pumping in my ears.
Friends walking away.
The unnamable sadness shuffling in.
Tears dropping into my hands.
My shell to the world cracking.
The adrenaline rushing through my body as I prepare to show everyone the naked, true me.
