A Bundle of Emotions That Even You Don’t Understand

Jump

The day I went back to the place I once felt so happy. The place that filled me with happiness and laughter. Even to this day it does the exact same, but things are different now. The air is different, the smell, the sounds; it’s all wrong. I just don’t know how to fix this, I’m frozen with it running through my mind at high speed, I can’t capture a thought long enough to use it. I realize time doesn’t heal a thing, we just simply live with it. We’re given second chances but things are different this time around, It’s not the same as it once was. I stand on the edge wondering what went so wrong within that time? I feel the breeze against my face, I glance down to realize there’s nowhere left to go. Who knows what’s down there, not you. Not me. If I don’t take my chance now I’ll never know. I take one more look around the place I once felt so safe and take a deep breath, close my eyes and jump.
