The agony of walking through these unfamiliar yet memorized halls is more than I can take. There’s a void in my heart.
I’ve taken refuge in these walls for ten years. My anxiety hidden from the world. Now the walls come down and I am forced to face what lies ahead — the unknown.
The fear is painful. I want to hold onto what is mine for only a moment longer. Why must everything always leave? Lovers, friends, family and homes. There is only ever one that stays: me.
Time to lay my head down and remember all that’s been. A prayer said to release the sadness of a passing life.
