She had a friend.

Just me. My life. My reality.


You want to know what's seriously sad?


What really makes me balk?

A few short months ago, I spent every possible second awake.


Sleeping was worse than anything because the nightmares.


They left me feeling hollow and like I was oozing with thick, black goo.


But now?


Now I do my best to sleep.


Because even the nightmares are better than this life.


At least in the nightmares I'm not alone
.
In the nightmares they talk to me...


Everyone is willing to show up and tell me all those awful things, or do even worse things..


. But you know what?

They still show up.

They still talk to me.


They're still there and It's become reliable
.
My nightmares aren't my saving grace, but they're certainly around a lot more than my sanity and they've become my new home.


A dark, broken and lonely home that only I live in.


But it's a home.


That's all that matters...
I'm home again.
