I escaped in a boat steered by faith, until the hostile shore faded into a memory.
I breathed in the ocean’s salty exhalations as if it were the last air on earth.
I longed for the simplicity of the sea…
Actually, I longed for home.
The city spoke in a language that was alien to me.
There, they twisted the world to fit the shapes of their fantasies.
I thought it would be different–brighter, better…
The sky purpled to the color of suffocation.
Distant city lights blinked obscenely like fireflies’ sex calls…
Sick of it, I dove towards liberty.
