Destiny
Briony Carvalho

The paint peels slowly from the walls of her mind

She tries to cover the cracks with her hands

Huddled back on the floor the futility hits her and she lets him

Again and again and again

 

Tendrils of dirty fog creep into her and slow her movements

She knows her life is happening without her

Senses numb she scrapes her nails down her arm to feel alive

Again and again and again

 

A trickle of light snakes in through the attic burning her skin

She fears the change, crawls deeper into the corner

The room ever expanding, the door getting further away

Further and further and further

 

A blast of light and she’s thrown blinking and gasping for air into a bright white room

The walls are new and clean and each holds a hundred doors

Destiny is there behind one of the heavy doors, a glowing light seeping from under the cracks

The way back a twirling slide into the familiar gloom

Which one
