THE DARK SECRET
A new day had just been born. I opened my eyes but couldn’t get up. The heaviness in my heart weighed me down I could hardly breathe.
Swallowing that hard lump in my throat that refused to leave, I couldn’t hold back those tears.
I managed to get up, opened the window by the side and got welcomed by the sun. The sun shone so bright yet it couldn’t lightened the darkness that engulfed me.
Like a lamb to be slaughtered, I walked to the bathroom. No matter how much I washed my face, I couldn’t wash off the dirtiness I felt on my inside.
Who does that? How easy was it to pick up my phone, called him and told him of the cankerworm that had been eating me off for years.
“No! There’s got to be another way” there’s got to be another way to swallow this hard pill.
But no matter how heavy a situation is, it would be talked about still.
How would I break off this shackles that has held me bound for years?
How do I restart my life again to be normal?
There’s only one solution that hugged at my heart. “Call him, tell him”.
Well then, if rain would cease to fall, then fine. If sun refused to give its shine, so be it. Even if the world would stop spinning, let it!
I had to redo what was done.
I had to begin on a new clean page, and the time was now!
I got a little strength to walk out of the bathroom and did that which was seemingly impossible, to call him!
With shaky hands, I picked up my Android phone and dialed his number. My pulse raced faster, my icon heart almost stopped!
“The number you’ve dialed is busy now, please try again later” I heard and felt relieved. It’d take a lot of courage to re dial the number.
I took the bull by the horn and called again.
I froze at the sound of his voice.
