Life can be a strange place. And sometimes it even feels like it doesn’t belong to us. Living in a pandemic has changed us all. We have had to adapt to living in an unusual way, a year has passed and I feel like valuable time has slipped through our fingers. And still, I had the Summer of my life.
I miss exploring the world. Feeling people’s affection, their closeness, their sweat, their fears and longings. To kiss a cheek without feeling dirty. To bathe under a waterfall. To run through the countryside. Throw myself in the snow. Search for crabs in the rocks. Going down to the floor in a gote.
No matter how hard I try, living in here for too long alienates me. My heart just wants to fly far away. Going back to my friends and loved ones who live apart. Feeling free again. Just sharing the present.
