The Way Things Were

I remember those days in the basement of Hart Street, where our love was fresh and untainted. The walls were our canvas, and we painted our dreams on them. We would spend hours talking about our future, laughing, and dreaming big. Our love felt invincible. We had no idea what was in store for us, but we were ready to face it together. As the years passed, life took its toll. The entertainment industry had me in its grasp, and the alcohol was slowly consuming me. The dream of our bright future seemed to dim with every passing day. The walls of our once magical basement were now chipping, with cracks exposing the reality of our crumbling foundation. It felt like I was losing her, the most important person in my life. As our wedding anniversary would reappear, I couldn’t help but feel the weight of my failures on my shoulders. I wanted so desperately to provide for Brenna, to give her everything she deserved, but it felt impossible. The depression wrapped around me like a suffocating blanket, and each day was a struggle to break free. But in the midst of this darkness, a glimmer of hope emerged. Brenna and I were talking more, reconnecting, and reminiscing about our early days together. Those simpler times seemed so distant, and yet, just having her near me again reignited something within me.
