Haunting Voice

100 Word Challenge writing prompt

i’m tiptoeing into the sun
light almost blinding
after a year of being held captive
with the darkness of you surrounding me
stagger a little as i move ahead
forcing myself to keep going
i need to put a great deal of distance
between you and i, where i was
and where i am going
cannot possibly connect
not in my mind, not in reality
you set me free, let me go
unsure if should feel grateful
right now i feel the sting like being slapped
hoping your haunting voice
leaves my mind forever, yet
hoping i’ll somehow remember, also.
