The coldness lingered through my system as I tried reaching out for the light. Save me. Save me from the monster inside my head. Someone, save me. But nobody said hell is transparent. Nobody said suffering is infinite. And the inevitability of pain is stronger than my weaknesses. No one was there to save me, and the monster still keeps on telling me to face the darkness I have — even my own fear.

So I tried saving myself instead. And dear, I just succeeded.
