so sad

“i wasn’t sad,” she’d later state plainly, as if that should have been obvious. “i was in shock.” i believed her completely, yet i also knew that in some small way she was lying. i knew because though i was also shocked, i was also a little sad. it wasn’t part of our plan. we were supposed to have more time together. just us. we weren’t ready to move on. to watch that life fade to a memory belonging to burning throats and warm bellies. we weren’t ready to be that grown up.
