Dear Denial

“It’s taken awhile, but you’ve almost disappeared. I just find fragments in the mornings, in a semiconscious state, while I’m waking but still tethered to a dream. Sometimes I am flying or dancing or lying in bed with Leonard Cohen touching my perfect body with his mind. My perfectly healthy body — with two swinging arms and two steady legs and a brain brimming with dopamine. That’s the body I have beneath these sheets. Before I’m wide awake. Before remembering wrecks everything.” - p. 78  Most Of Me
