29 May 2011
The lights are out and my door is locked. In the background, a slow song keeps playing on a never-ending loop. Outside, rain patters softly on the rooftops, and the wind, ever present, breeze through the open blinds of my window and into my room before settling onto me.
I close my eyes and feel every beat my heart makes, and feeling no pain coursing through my veins, I smile.
