one night you screamed at me until I had a panic attack and kept screaming

̶I̶ ̶b̶r̶o̶k̶e̶ ̶u̶p̶ ̶w̶i̶t̶h̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶,̶ ̶c̶a̶l̶l̶e̶d̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶b̶e̶s̶t̶ ̶f̶r̶i̶e̶n̶d̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶c̶a̶t̶c̶h̶ ̶m̶e̶ ̶w̶h̶i̶l̶e̶ ̶I̶ ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶s̶t̶i̶l̶l̶ ̶r̶e̶e̶l̶i̶n̶g̶

it felt out of nowhere, the tidal shift in you. you apologized. I forgave you.

̶i̶t̶ ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶a̶ ̶b̶i̶l̶l̶o̶w̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶r̶e̶d̶ ̶f̶l̶a̶g̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶I̶ ̶i̶m̶m̶e̶d̶i̶a̶t̶e̶l̶y̶ ̶u̶s̶e̶d̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶a̶ ̶p̶a̶r̶a̶c̶h̶u̶t̶e̶ ̶ ̶

then I began to lose myself, body moving, mind sleep-walk dreaming

    Very deep, I felt this one. Great job and I love how the options are crossed out in lieu of what was chosen. I hope this gets a top story spot.
