Hi isolation, do you remember me. We haven’t talked in awhile and I was just wondering if you were okay You See, you left me at a young age, an age where I didn’t know any better, so I always assumed you would come back Instead isolation, you left me broken and scarred, you left me to pick up the broken pieces of my own damn heart I keep telling myself to let go, but how do you let go of something that’s a part of you. I always told myself that I was never going to be able to move on. I pitied myself and most days, I prayed for a relief. Something to take my pain away. I was so angry that you didn’t tell me how you were feeling that you were drowning in an ever pulling darkness full of sadness and temptation. But I was more angry with myself because I could not see, i could not see the signs that you were so desperately trying to display. But then I remembered you told me how proud you were, you were proud that I became such a strong independent woman, something you would never admit to unless.....well anyways today isolation i looked for signs. I made sure that when I reattached my broken pieces, that I would also help others with theirs.
