Strange but true

Being home after a long time and discovering the loss of friendship and how empty one can feel around them.

Strange but true

The empty feeling inside is haunting, like you have died inside and you are nothing but an integument of your former self going through the motions. I know it well.

I went to a coffee shop with a couple of old friends...should have been all kinds of fun, but almost as soon as it started that feeling crept all over me, in the midst of people I felt alone. I wish I had the answer. I was staring through them, across the boundaries of the sea, through the dimly lit lights of the boats, glancing towards the stars in the dark sky...

Often I wish I were a kid again where friendships could be started over a new toy or video game, or even when met accidentally in a picnic island. Now the world feels fake, like everyones wearing a mask. It's as if no one is real anymore.

Slowly, I am trying. Yet,I am lost.I am trying to find myself. A stranger in my hometown, that's me.
