Shimmer: A Moment Alone

Sitting in that pale white room, my mind was a whirlwind of emotions. The sterile walls felt cold and unforgiving, reflecting the turmoil that raged inside of me. I had just left the law firm for the night, where I spent my days drowning in a sea of paperwork, shackled to a job that sucked the life out of me. The faces of my coworkers were like static on a TV screen, nothing but noise I couldn’t stand. My marriage with Brenna was falling apart, crumbling like the dry leaves of autumn. I couldn’t shake the feeling that it was all my fault. Each night, I would lie awake in our once-shared bed, staring at the ceiling and feeling the weight of my failures crushing me. But here, in this room, with my guitar in hand, I felt like I could finally breathe. The air in the room was heavy with tension, but it was a welcome change from the suffocating atmosphere that seemed to follow me everywhere. Nicole was there, her warm and comforting presence a beacon of light in the darkness that had consumed me. We had grown closer over the past month, and I couldn’t help but feel a twinge of guilt as I thought about how much I relied on her. She was my rock, and the burden of that truth weighed heavily on my conscience. But then again, she was the only one who could stomach my presence at that time. I strummed my guitar, letting the sound reverberate off the walls, filling the room with a melody that seemed to echo the anguish inside me. The anger I felt towards my situation with Brenna was palpable, a burning fire that threatened to consume me, but I refused to let it stop me from pursuing my dreams. I was dead set on winning, by any means necessary, and that meant using this time to further advance my career. The dark energy I had once felt in the Hart Street basement was back, and I spent my days obsessing over its presence. It clung to me like a shadow, a constant reminder of the demons I had yet to conquer. I wasn’t alone. The room seemed to be filled with the ghosts of my past, watching silently as I fought to regain control of my life. I could feel their eyes on me, their whispers in my ear, urging me to push forward, to escape the chains that held me back.
