Misery is an unrelenting downward escalation. The heaviness of trapped energy becomes real weight, it drags you down and fastens you into position, a relaxed position, though you are not relaxed. Placed this way, you burn as unstable chemicals burn, fall as heavy objects fall when dropped by those who possess them. You are abandoned. Left to stew in this pit of flames. Those you danced and laughed with stop holding you hand, for who would wish to cling to a burning thing? This is why you deal with The Issue alone. Because those who claim not to need anybody are liars who wish to justify their solitude, who wish to bury the fact that their companions, when proven incapable of helping, no longer wish to help. Alone, you are disgusted with them. But now you understand. You do not act as they do when the black clouds part because you have gained more alone than they ever will together. And when you see the blue sky again and regain your ability to fly you will forever leave them and theirs behind.
