unkind, why, fate

(no subject)

When movies show people receiving news of their friend's/etc death, they always go "Oh, no! There must be a mistake!"

That's not real.

What's real is the shock and then the coming to a second later, your chest heaving, tears sliding down your face and more tears flooding out your eyes. It's when you can taste the salt from the tears hours later on your lips.

That's real grief.
