Sweet Sarah

Life wasn’t a bowl of cherries. That’s just the way it went for me. I made bad choices, and I apologise for them daily. Of course, no one wants to hear apologies when crimes such as mine occur. I don’t know what they want from me. I gave up my soul years ago, wrapped myself in the robes of the wicked, and thought only of myself. Somehow, along the way, I chose a way of life that disappointed all that believed in me, and eventually became disappointed in myself.

There was no set point that I can recall when I changed. I just lost myself. Each day, I spiralled down further into my own sinful thoughts, and drank heavily to dull the impulses that racked my mind, and eventually the line between reality and fantasy just blurred…

I know you are thinking I’m making excuses. I’m not. I am merely explaining how I could go from what I was to what I am now. The drinking was just a vehicle to make the trip easier, not a process to get there. I had no idea what I was becoming, I just… became. At some point, I assumed your silence was an indication that you agreed with me. I had no idea that you had just given up.

They have me in a room, thinking they control me. I take that medication they give me, but I know it can’t help what I’ve become.

I am coming for you, eventually. You can stake your life on it, sweet Sarah. Sweet, sweet Sarah.

But then, I think you already know that.

Sweet Sarah.
Sweet Sarah.
Dead Sarah.

I am coming for you.

Sweet Sarah

I’ve been away from writing for awhile, so forgive me if this isn’t as good as I would like for it to be.
