Listen

This is a straightforward experiment
to make you understand how I feel.

Step 1: Mentally, imagine these sounds.

  • Paper tearing
  • Glass shattering
  • Cars screeching to a halt
  • Styrofoam grating
  • High-pitched laughing
  • Things falling to the ground

Step 2: Isolate that internal convulsion you get when you hear these sounds.

Step 3: Add in the feeling of 3-4 paper cuts for good measure.

Step 4: Magnify that by at least 7 times (depending on intensity of feeling).
And this is what you might get just a hint of —

  • Eyes tearing
  • Trust shattering
  • Dreams screeching to a halt
  • Jealousy grating
  • Forced false laughing
  • Heart falling to the ground

Step 5: Now, you can wonder why with so much pain,
I can’t seem to move on.

[Hint: You can’t understand that from an experiment.]
