I want you to hug me, I muttered to Sadness.

For a moment, I want you to be still.

I want your friend, Reality, to slap me so hard. 
And crumble my fragile heart about the truth that his love has faded.

Tell your good ol' pal, Memories, to walk past me.
And standby in my rumbled brain to decipher the fact that he left me--alone and hanging.

Why do you want us to remain? Sadness replied.

Because then and only then, can I ever feel that someone actually stays.
