Experiencing Interruptions?

Wasted Memories

Trapped in his past, a boy reminisces about what used to be.

Blake lay awake at night, staring at the ceiling. While his room is shrouded in orange light, he reflects on the purple wonderland he used to call home. After this session of recollection nearly brings him to tears, he attempts to suppress these thoughts until he indulges in them once more. Realizing that he will never be free from the grip of nostalgia, Blake cries over these wasted memories.
