College was supposed to be a fresh start.
A new beginning away from my suffocating past.
Far away from the parents who were more concerned with what I eat than me.
Miles away from the friend who let me down harder than those parents ever did.
Out of reach from the dark secrets that haunted my dreams.
But some of those secrets refused to be left behind.
Some followed me to my new haven, creating havoc.
Some forged new ties with new tormentors, making my life a new kind of hell.
Some forced me to face a past that I could never run from.
Some found pleasure in my agony.
