The warm spring air calms my mind as my feet hit the sparkling cement of the now wet main street bridge. The hood of my black jacket hides my face as I make my way to the top. Its 2a.m. and the city is dead silent. My phone buzzes continuously in my back pocket, but I ignore it. My mind wonders as I stare down at the black waters beneath me. Who will miss me when I’m gone? Who will think of me? I check my phone to see a familiar name glowing on the screen. Devin… I can’t help but shed a tear as I think of him. My best friend. We’ve had a lot of major problems lately, but he has been there for me through so much…
I slip my phone back into my pocket and swing my legs over the guard rail holding on tight and letting myself lean forward inch by inch.
Close my eyes.
The world is lost to the darkness that is the bottom of the river bed. I hear the water rush around me as I start to sink.
Fear takes over. I can’t do it. I kick and claw at the water until I finally reach the surface. I’m pathetic. I’m a failure. I need comfort… Why am I so stupid?
I show up at his door. He takes me in. He’s all I’ve got left. He’s like a brother to me. I adore him. My anchor.. The one thing that makes me want to live..
