“And this. This is a reality
I never wanted to know.
Tonight, let me get lost in you.”
Sometimes I think I’ve entered some kind of alternate reality. A place where hostility and open hatred, where intimidation and superiority reign. A place where history is attempting to repeat itself. A history I was fortunate not to know beyond books, television and history lessons. A history I hoped would stay in the past. But as a Hydra does, it has spawned anew — krept up like a fog in the night. And this. This is a reality I never wanted to know. I just wish I could get lost in you and forget what’s happening in the world around me.
Is that too much to ask? Just one day of peace, from fighting my own inner demons and constant pain. One day from the craziness outside these walls.
