"I left that house with nothing, not even my clothes. I had nothing to my name anymore, not even my own emotions, which I keep locked tight in my mind. In a daze I stumbled throughout the town, the night air smelling like smoke and the feeling of it all being numbed by the sensation of my crushing mind. I didn't notice it at first. Invisible, it sat there not making any moves and just chipped away at me. Before I knew it I was a changed person. My family saw the state I was in and wanted to help me, but I pushed them away thinking I could handle it on my own. It was too little too late though. Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months, months turned into a full year, and by the end of it all everyone was gone. My connections to this world were severed, and all that I had was the husk of a body I was put into. I let it in and it took everything. I let it in and I never came out. I let it in and now the time seems slower than once before."
