It’s been twenty years since the darkness captured me. Why can’t it just release me and leave me be? People say, “Get over it!” or “Let it go!” I don’t know how. I did not get my closure; the closure so many say is the beginning of letting go. I live my life one day at a time; keeping the pain at bay. There are nights, such as tonight, that pain sneaks up and tarnishes my smile, reminding me of the deepest loss I have ever had to suffer. His face haunts me with the distant stare in his beautiful brown eyes as he left me here alone; to go on without him. I have been searching the world over to find what I lost, only to be let down because what I lost died with him; my innocence.
I have loved since him, just as deeply and purely, only to be destroyed again by someone else’s hand. This curse needs to be broken. There has to be a way to make this shroud burst into flames and the ashes blown away in the wind. There is someone out there to ignite the darkness that has consumed me; to break me free.
There is hope. There is a way to say good-bye…….
