Somehow, there was no longer enough room for the emptiness inside me. Pure desperation to escape the void pushed me through the only door I knew to lead me outside. I walked, I stumbled, through clusters of stray leaves that crunched beneath my bare feet. I inhaled the brisk fall air that numbed my toes though what I wished it'd do was numb my memories. and then I ran; passion for escape swelling up like the thunderclouds above me until the rain breaks through and begins falling upon my face. The rain drops feel like truth washing the lies away. The water floods me like the realization that maybe I'm not running away. Maybe I'm not looking for to escape the emptiness. Maybe I'm searching for cover; maybe, I'm simply searching to fill it with you.
