A backward glance and tears spill relentlessly on the inside. Trying to focus forward as ghostly figures catch the corners of my view, reaching for the me that used to be, that no longer remains. Outside I remain cold, indifferent to the pain, aching not for what was left behind but stepping fully into the present that will build my dreams to come. Hope carries me forward while old memories attempt to drag me under. Desolation lingers along the path I have walked. Fate cannot leave me abandoned to the destiny of destruction which has seemed to linger for so long. The answers lie hidden amongst today’s choices and tomorrow’s opportunities while the timeline of life beats raggedly, leaving a stumbling trail impossible for most to follow. Exhaling the breath of hesitation that I’ve held for so long; my lungs breathe in air laced with traces of happiness as confusion clears and the future changes shape.
Oblivion has released my secret pirate ship and I find that I am not its only passenger.
