and they will say that they didn't see it coming, but they did. and we'll all pretend that we aren't lying, that we weren't lying the whole time, that we didn't see it coming because really, no one wanted to. and like it always goes, she was beautiful and never lied and helped everyone right up until the moment nobody remembered to help her back.
and like it always goes, this is a bittersweet speech with tears and roses and everybody's lying the way she always did, and everybody's trying to forget like she always did, trying to forget that she was the only one that bothered and they never bothered back which is why they're all here in the first place. and they're at loss for words and the sky is too bright, and she wrote us a letter, and she wrote us to tell us that we were no better than she ever was, we were liars and when we read it, we couldn't lie anymore and it was kind of a shame, because we liked our lies. we really did.
and it was sad, but we can't do much better than just sit there and say how sad it all was. we're all sad.
