It was a peaceful night for me to walk around the streets.
I walk through the familiar place which I once knew.
"What brings me back in here?" I ask myself.
There is a deep wounded feeling tugging at my chest every time I think of this place.
I told myself, "It won't last long for this is just a dream that was never told."
Suddenly, the beat of my heart turns to an achingly painful rhythm. "What's happening?" I wondered. I think I am about to faint. But that's what I thought.
This is so surreal.
I breathe into the cold evening air and remembered something I wouldn't want to. Somewhere in the corner of this street, I can face the reality of my life.
As I continue my journey, I catch a glimpse of an antique shop.
I started to walk fast until...
...Until I couldn't anymore. I stop dead in my tracks.
I lean towards the glass and saw dozens and more clocks hang in every corner. Ticking at the same... Same Time. Same Rhythm. and at the Same Time.
"Woah!" I am amused.
I reach for the handle but everything started to slow down. People starts disappearing one by one and I am left alone, standing in front of the shop.
I turn by the sound of my name. He is across me. Christian. The boy who broke my heart.
Now, we were both alone.
My heart starts to slow down. I blink at him.
"I'm sorry," he said. His voice is strained and tired.
That's your payback, my mind said. I knew this was coming. The painful hole in my heart starts to open.
The clock stops ticking. 9:00 p.m.
The time of our last date. The time he broke up with me. The time I died.
Memories are relived in my mind.
I am ready for the nearing. Let it be.
I closed my eyes and my body starts to break into a hundred fragile pieces. Everything has gone black. I am alone. I am in the afterlife again.
I saw the hidden the truth that have gone into a lie.
He did love me but he wasn't ready. I am one of those people. I was back for him to see me....
...To see me... ONCE AGAIN.
'Til and Forever.
