And when I woke later, my face lying in a pool of mucus and saline, eyelids swollen to the point of numbness over my throbbing corneas, one last lazy tear dribbling down my cheek, I felt a coma of resignation take over. A long moment of silence, as if my loneliness were watching me flat line and calling out the time of death, and then slowly, painfully, I opened my eyes to the morning light.
