My North

The moment I saw you, I knew you were my North. Nevertheless, I kept going south. I didn’t want us to be, because I wanted it too much. What really scared me was that I saw myself changing and when I looked at the mirror, I couldn’t recognise that girl anymore. You made me feel like a stranger in my own body. And that was terrifying.

I stumbled and fell many times. But I kept walking opposite to you. I look in the mirror and I know who I am. I look into my eyes and I find you there. Forever a memory I can’t forget. Forever a pull I can’t sever. Forever the only home I have ever known and the one I so quickly ran away from.
