The Prompt - Solitary

Sorry if this post makes no sense, but I am letting my heart do the writing and I needed to get this off my chest. My fingers could barely keep up.

I can't stipulate what is over, but it is. It's over. It's really over. After all these years I'm 99% sure that it's over. Sometimes, well most times, when you know, you know. I knew one day it would end and I secretly feared for this day. I cherish those days when it was good, when it was easy, things were familiar and comfortable. And now I sit here, alone, mourning and grieving, losing what was never going to be mine but felt like it was mine this whole time.

Looking back at all those years and all those choices I made, I don't know if regret is the right word. Could this be time to live as an authentic true self. What made it okay, for all these years, to live any other way? It's over but it's not because I will have to continue to live with and fight with what has happened. There are reminders everywhere. Permanent reminders, everywhere and yet I am still in this alone.

Other times when I thought it was ending, it was different, I had more hope. I have little hope now. Such little hope to hang on to. Everyone gets what they deserve in the end which raises so many questions which I actually know all the answers to. I'm not sure what is worse. Doing this alone or the lack of closure that will come from this. There is no closure, there can't be, because I was in this alone from the beginning.

A third of your life, cannot be forgotten, which I will seek comfort in, yet the rest of your life is to come and I wonder what I will do. Now. This discomfort, this unease, that lump in my throat. I mean really, what was I thinking? What else was meant to happen? I rejoiced in your miseries. Your lonliness was my joy. My lonliness was your open door.

Learn Sarah. Learn. Never stop learning. Grow Sarah. Grow. It's time to grow.
BUT I DON'T WANT TO! Like a tired child resisting a much needed nap. I don't want to.

Do this alone. I don't want to have this on my shoulders. It's just too hard.

They say when one door closes another opens. But I'm not ready for this door to close. I would much rather burn it down and watch it go up in flames. Up and down, to and fro, excitement and anxiety. All at the same time. For all these years. All on my own.
