Entry for booksie contest

 

The satin shield kept the wind from scratching my back- my mind began to wonder.  

 

It was this day, ten years ago; that I tried to jump.

 

Something kept me at bay.

 

Was it the intrusive thoughts that lead me to this place?

 

Or did the burdens of the world police my thought process entirely?

 

I am here.
