Once the book is finished I will take my life back from Laura. I died that afternoon when I received the shocking and traumatic news of her death and I gave my life willingly to her.
Every year for the past three years, on the anniversary of her death, I have tried to say goodbye to her, I have tried to find life, but to no avail. She is still all around me, her sadness clinging to me, we have become one. Soon I will untangle myself from her, but she will still be with me, not in me, as I walk the final steps of my own journey.
