Escape..

  The house looked forlorn, it’s once magnificent walls now covered in ivy and the winter snow lay soft on the ground stirring something deep within my soul. I unlocked the huge wooden doors and stepped inside and a sudden feeling of loss overwhelmed me, pulling me down with it to bottomless dark pits that plunged my whole world upside down. Five long years away from all that I had loved, away from her haunting memories, away from her bittersweet presence...I walked up to the beautiful portrait and leaned my head against it, no longer willing to escape, as I heard her soft voice whisper...


  It’s Christmas my love. And you are finally home...

  2. Quite a poignant picture of going back to a home someone has once lived in. The cold wintry scene adds to the dreariness, and sadness remembering a parent or grand-parents who had owned the house. WELL DONE !!!
