a story about restlessness

some stories, she’d say, the more you tell them, the faster you use them up.
those kind, the drama burns off, and every version, they sound more silly and flat.
the other kind of story, it uses you up. the more you tell it, the stronger it gets.
those kind of stories only remind you how stupid you were. are. will always be.
