"Sad girl takes a walk to clear her head and never comes back. Sad girl evaporates. Sad girl nicks herself on a needle and discovers she is full of smoke. Sad girl’s epitaph reads, “Died in bedroom after forgetting to leave.” Sad girl choking on the lump in her throat. Sad girl not being able to Heimlich her words away. Sad girl still. Sad girl stolen. Sad girl staring off into space mid-sentence. Sad girl having to remind herself to breathe. Sad girl not so sad anymore. Sad girl just kidding when she said that. Sad girl as the punchline. Sad girl unsure of the joke. Sad girl talking about her almost “goodbye”s and going deaf at her mother’s sigh. Sad girl just selfish. Sad girl just young. Sad girl burden. Sad girl not easy to care for. Sad girl not wanting to feel like this anymore. Sad girl grow up. Sad girl shut up. Sad girl not enough. Sad girl falling into difficult love because it’s all she’s known with herself. Sad girl turning over and hoping her shaking doesn’t wake them. Sad girl staying even when it gets really bad. Sad girl toying with the idea. Sad girl disappointed that nothing happened. Sad girl imagining getting into a car crash. Sad girl not looking both ways before she crosses the street. Sad girl just a statistic. Sad girl just a smokescreen. Sad girl so sick of saying “I’m fine.” Sad girl okay. Sad girl smiling. Sad girl making herself laugh. Sad girl more than her sadness. Sad girl no longer ashamed of her emotions. Sad girl not asking for your pity. Sad girl only needing a phone call. A text message. A hand to hold. A reminder. A “I’m still here. I’ll come in. If you let me. If you let me.”"
