A Thriller: If Only I Knew

only

October 2020

the sky is a never-ending swirl of twinkling stars and mystic navy blues
I work quickly, noticing how the clicking of my keyboard
overpowers the silence in the small bedroom

March 2017

a smiling girl passes by me in the bustling halls of my high school
she has blue eyes, blonde hair
skinny
perfect

April 2017

at lunch, she brings nothing to eat
I offer her my snack
she refuses it, smiling once again
only now her cheeks are sullen
her face is grey

from that moment, I should have known that something was wrong
but instead, I innocently backed away,
unaware of the course of events 
that would soon demolish my life

May 2017

the girl does not sit at lunch anymore
nor does she go to school
instead, a hospital keeps her inside
a breathing mask on her face

tubes flowing into her wrists
her glistening beauty replaced with blank hollowness
and when she pulled up her sleeves
you could see the bones poking out of her atrophied arm

and the red scars that littered every part of them
doctors attempted to explain her disorder to me
but I could not hear them over my despairing sobs
that seemed to fill every corner of the twisted room

October 2020

my surroundings become familiar, and I find myself in my bedroom again
the blonde girl stands at my door, sweetly smiling at me
before her face morphs to bone and her wrists begin to bleed
and all that I can hear are her agonizing cries

I put my hands over my ears and shut my eyes before opening them again
only to find that the blonde girl is no longer in my doorway
instead, I look up to see a red puddle of blood trickling from the ceiling
it clashes against the floor 
and soaks into my carpet

removing my hands from my ears, I hear the sound that the blood makes 
as it beats against the floor
drip
drip
drip

paralyzed, I shut my eyes and briefly open them again
only to see that the blood was never there
the dripping sound never existed
and the girl at my door was only a hallucination
nothing remains

I look down at my glowing computer screen, then at the mystic navy skies
realizing that I am exactly where I was before
yet, the gut-wrenching silence persists
and its existence infiltrates my veins
my soul
my guilt
my existence

“pain comes to those who deserve it.”
thus, I sit in the silence and the pain it brings me
“if only I knew.”
