He took me to the highest point in town. Look at all that smog.
You know when something really gets you down? It engulfs your entire being.

I was not being ridiculed for being different.
I was not being hidden away so no one could see us together.

I breathed, and for the first time, I felt safe.
Teetering on the cliff of what seemed to be the world, I was free.
Nothing can hold me down.
No one can hold me back.
Not even a stupid, ignorant person who was undeserving of my kindness.
I sighed. I let it all go, and we moved on.
