The Soul's Dwelling

PROMPT: Geography of Home

   The room in which I lived in smelled of fear and pain. My soul had been trapped in those four walls and to this day, I believe there is still a piece there. The hallway in which I walked countless times, held only a few photographs of family or friends that are permanently implanted in my mind.

     Do you feel it too?

The growing fervor in my lungs,
greater than any type strength I had.
As if I’m in a great, open ocean
