The wind groans and tears at my walls. The darkness stretches on, taunting me. I want nothing more but to evaporate into space, never to be seen again. I shrink farther into the corner. One of the shattered pieces of my heart scrapes at my consciousness. The tears no longer roll down my raw cheeks. My nails leave craters in the rough carpet. A scream rips through my chest. Why did he shatter my heart into a thousand jagged pieces? Why did he leave me with empty promises? My sanity escaped from me… All I can do now is shrink farther into my corner and give into the smirking darkness.
