The Places I…

These are the places I used to run away to. They look and feel so different now. Maybe because I am not here to escape anymore, but to revisit the past. The places feel so empty and I realise they have always been this empty. Back then I thought that all I needed was the sights, smells and sounds, and after a while the boredom got to me, and neither my body nor my brain was challenged any longer. I look at the places I’ve sat in, slept in, made love in: they do not move me, they do not make me uncomfortable. I do not need to escape – I see the places for what they really are.
