I wandered into the room, my mind drunk with the exhaustion of a day's worries and random thoughts. I crawled in bed and hoped sleep would come soon so I could slip into that warm and blissful darkness I had been using lately as a kind of refuge from reality.

I laid there for hours, painfully awake. Why was this so difficult? Why couldn't I escape?

Why couldn't I forget?

And if I can't forget..

I would give anything to start all over again from the very beginning.

Anything at all..

Because these memories... are turning out to be too much for me.
