Dear Stranger, I often wonder what it feels like to die. Does it hurt? Is it quick? Do you slip peacefully into nothingness or are you forced to fight your way to something else? These thoughts plague me from time to time. And what of the idea of God? Is there someone holding the light for you leading you to eternal peace? And on the other side of the coin is there someone else forcing you into eternal suffering? Stranger I have not thought these thoughts in quite some time. When she finally couldn't take it and left is when they slowly crept back into my mind. Now I not only think about death but it makes me think of my death. When will it happen? Will it be soon? Will it be painful? Will I be the cause of it? I've walked that road before, I've taken the blade to my wrists as I had planned it but the outcome was different. I didn't die no...but I wasn't exactly saved either. I have not thought about that for some time. I've done my best to forget the coldness of the blade on my skin, the weeks I spent in that god forsaken hospital, the tears that were shed on my pillow every night, the screams I muffled every day and the smile I faked as well. I thought I was truly past all of that stranger, until she came into my life with love...then left with cruelty. Something feels broken stranger, I do hope you can help me fix it

All of my love, Noah.
