Here we are again! I hoped you got lost in the nothingness of all the days that have passed since we last stood face to face, separated by darkness only. I can feel your breath on my neck and in my mind I am begging you again to let me go.
I feel your shadow surrounding me, your musty scent poisons the air around me. Like a bad sin, you never stay away for too long. You call it 'love', I call it 'curse'.

I raise my arms to the sky and I know I am where I belong. If this place would actually exist and have a name I could probably call it 'home'

No longer the exhausted body that strives to look beautiful and thin to please those who can only see.
No longer the smile that shows up every time insecurities surface to impress those who judge.
