Since you left, I just have been running.
I know, the world's round and there is no escape from who you are and what you did, but if it's any consolation - I still hope for better things.
There are times I sit alone and ask these weird questions to myself full of what ifs. And the answer never seems to petrify my soul, like making handmade cards for you did.
Have you heard about Ariel? Shakespeare said that even after being a ghost, he was loyal to the one who saved him. I am even worse. I am a human. I was never to the only girl who saved me. Ariel's loyalty set him free, and ours always kept us caged. There is this temple in my town, if you go there you'd remember the first time we had an official date when we rang the bell together. I never could say, but you looked beautiful in that red t-shirt of yours. And that day, I chose to worship you.
My dad says I am never silent, I never hear my thoughts. How do I tell him that doing so would undo all these years I have been trying to survive in a world with you? So I just stay quiet, with my head down - listening to my thoughts that scream your name. And the silence of that scream is deafening. So I play the music which he stopped, knowing that I can hear his scoldings but not the turmoil of my truth.
I never really visited the temple since you left. I miss the sound of bells. Would you care for an evening prayer today?
If you come, wear the same t-shirt. ♥️
