They say the other side is dark, so dark you cannot see. But, I've found a glaring light, nearly blinding me. So deafening was the constant sound. No peace, no solace could be found. There was no concept of linear time. My thoughts were jumbled, my voice shook. God only knows the effort it took to live my life, instead of hide until I was back safely on the other side. Although my vision is still somewhat hazy, I'll be damned if your abandonment will drive me crazy.
