They say when you die, your whole life plays over in your mind like a Hallmark movie.
A rose-tinted reflection to remind you what a great life you’ve led. For me, that wasn’t the case.
There was no romantic, nostalgic ending for me. All I had was pain, darkness, and despair on the day I died, dragged by fire into the depths of hell. That’s where I live now. A shadow of the man I used to be. A ghost living in my former life.
Life goes on, but not for me.
She burst into my world with her smile and her sledgehammer, ready to smash down my walls. She thinks she can save me, but she won’t. I don’t want to be saved. But I’ll play along. After all, that’s all I have left now, a life of pretend and a world of lies, where I play the role they want me to play.
Zak Atwood. Son. Brother. Friend. But boyfriend? That’s never going to happen.
How can I live that life when all I feel is dead inside?
