It was harder. After she left. The abandonment had been shocking. Although, he had yet to reason what he had expected. She was a free spirit.
And with his scars, he was anything but free.
For the first few weeks home, with her, he’d found them easier to deal with.
The shell shock was real and terrifying.
She’d given him a sense of comfort.

“You've got to learn to act like God.
You rule the world.
You give the word
and if someone should fall behind
just let their suffering slip your mind.”
