Prevention is Better Than Cure
Because letting go is easier said than done.
I sit alone on my bed looking sadly almost longingly at the gloves
that lay beside me. I should be happy, I can touch now, but i'm sad,
sad for all my lost time, sad that i'm leaving tomorrow. I can't
remeber what touch is like, nearly my whole life i've been wrapped
in a world of fabric, no texture except the soft worn insides of my
gloves.I'm scared that people who know me will turn me away because
i'm not a mutant anymore, scared, still scared of touch, scared that
it won't change anything that everyone will stil fear my bare skin.
Only one way to be sure, i wlak out of my room, making a mental note
to grab hold of the first person I see. It happened to be Bobby, I
grabed hold of his hand and held his warm skin tightly, skin on
skin, it was a feeling I liked. I cried, they say prevention is
better than cure, sometimes that's true, sometimes its not, but I
know one thing for sure, letting go is so much easier said than done.
