“Drie Maanden Later"

Deze animatie maakt deel uit van de TED-Ed-serie, "Daar is een gedicht voor", met geanimeerde interpretaties van zowel oude als nieuwe gedichten die taal geven aan enkele van de grootste gevoelens van het leven.

"I'm Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz and this is "Three Months After."
To want to disappear is different from wanting to die.
To disappear and to not have to explain to anyone, to talk to anyone.
To move to somewhere where no one knows you, where you don't have to look at a single laughing face.
To elope with this grief who is not your enemy
This grief who maybe now is your best friend.
This grief who is your husband, the thing you curl into every night, falling asleep in its arms.
Who wakes up early to make you your cold thankless breakfast.
To go to that place where every surface is a blade.
A sharp thing on which to hang your sorry flesh to feel something, anything, other than this."
