Medicine & Faith

There are two types of sadness. There’s the kind of sadness we ignore and try to get rid of it by finding new things to do, or we find someone to talk to by blatantly avoiding any type of conversation about feeling sad about having any feelings at all.

You try to break love to a science. All in an act of defiance. You both broke each other’s heart. There’s a pull in your conversations that makes both of you grow weary. You broke each other’s resolve.

Perhaps you’d realize there’s some semblance of truth between hope and faith found down that trodden path where it’s not easy finding a soul and a heart in the stars. You understand that everything is real. Not the cocoon you’re used to.

It’s the way you feel, that this is real to you. You can’t explain a love that feels like what you had.
