Honestly, i do really love living this life. It's been so good me, Really. But I keep on wondering how it will be when i die. I can imagine people updating their status messages saying "We'll always remember you" (As if they always do) and Comments be like ; "I still can't believe it", 'what happened?" Others be posting sad or crying emotjis while others just put on a simple "RIP" And I can also see someone logging in on facebook and checking their chats to see if i'm in... No! I am not. And quickly they go to messages, only to find that I was last seen about 19 hours ago...

Now there comes a lonely thought. "So he's really dead. Hm? But, why didn't he say anything before? This must be a joke. I know he can be cruel. A fool, He doesn't know it when he breaks other people's emotions... Let me give him a call" And then my phone rings for about 10 minutes until it's battery low. 17 missed calls. It's then they start to get convinced that I am really gone. No tears at all for that moment All I see is mind that is wandering, amusing facial expression and an unussual heartbeat. When their phone starts to vibrate, I see joy and relief on their soul. But it's all reversed when they find that it's a call from someone who's asking or rather confirming that HE.IS.REALLY.NO.MORE. And then I see eyes full of tears, and some shaking I see someone feeling very shocked and dropping that phone on the floor as if it is heavy. And suddenly, I see other people talking about buying some flowers Others talk about going to my home on weekend Others say they're not sure if they'll be able to come and pay their last respect That they'll see if they can make a plan Others get very obsessed with that image of me from distance... Now wait!..... Why's that? What's wrong with you? Do we have unfinished business, Do we have an appointment or Do i owe you something else? So what's with that sweet talks, pain, pity and tears? I never recieved those when I was still alive and yet my life was fine. Do you really have to cry? So you had something to say? Then it's a pity because crying can never bring me back to life.
