Living In Your Hometown.

Living in your hometown is walking into the post office and being served by a boy that you went to mosque with, or going into a bar and the bartender being the guy that you once had a crush on, or going to a wedding and your cousin marrying the guy that you sat next to in class, or going into a pharmacy and having to talk to a girl that despised you for unknown reasons, or walking into a park that you loved as a child to find it having turned into a place where drunkards arrive to become merry.

Living in your hometown is strolling along the street and having to carefully evade people that won't let go of your old self, or walking into town and seeing children surrounding someone that you used to be best friends with, or leaving particular spaces because they remind you of old aches.

Living in your hometown is like existing in a backdrop that your body begs to forget, scorning limbs and confusing mind with every attempt to move forward.
