My high school friend Denise passed away last night. Today I had been checking my email account and the webpage her family created incessantly to get some news. When I read that "We wish her farewell" my body jerked and I felt a rush inside my head.

I just feel tired and empty. I walked twenty blocks before catching the subway. I feel utterly listless, and selfish too. I can't believe this happened - it is all so wrong. This from U2 - it's all I can think of for her:

Beneath the noise
Below the din
I hear your voice
It's whispering
In science and in medicine
I was a stranger you took me in

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough of romantic love
I'd give it up, yeah I'd give it up
For a miracle drug
