Day 4 of escapril —

I have very mixed feelings about today's prompt: the line between art expressing heavy struggles such as mental illnesses and romanticising them is very thin.
Though I would be a hypocrite not to say that I do use "writing" to talk about some personal experiences with this topic, I try to leave it as vague as possible, giving space to interpretation.
I hope, with this piece, I was able to stay respectful and unharmful.
