We all have that place inside us, don’t we? That inner haven where magic happens, where chocolate doesn’t have calories and copious amounts of wine is good for you, not to mention socially acceptable. It’s a place of moody skies and stormy waters, a place to calm the soul. We seek out that place when life gets to be too much. Too much stress, too much pressure, too much heartache.
But sometimes when we need it the most, that place is gone. Empty and barren. We count on it, rely on it, we need it to be there when we call on it; but one day, it’s just not there. Hopes and dreams live on, growing sour, more and more desperate as time goes by.
Foiled by our own self, we’re lost.
