Going Slightly Mad

Sophia feels obsessed by the thought of Dylan… something primal binds them on a soul level and she wants to find out what and why…

This is madness… I cannot kick him out of my head even if I tried… Our conversation keeps replaying in my mind… We only talked about the essentials, things that nobody else seems willing to discuss. I still don’t know what he does, his personal history, his daily routine or any of that… However, somehow I feel we share the same dream. Of Truth, of Freedom, of Love. He reminded me that about myself. Who I am deep down inside. I miss her. Where has she been all this time? Building a career, getting engaged, being lost in her very active social life, marketing other people’s art, being there for anyone else but herself. All Dylan wanted to know was me… and I feel like I have forgotten who I truly am. Somehow he reflects that truth so clearly to me, without even saying a word. His presence unlocked a vault inside me, where I have stashed all things too uncomfortable or too real. The feelings that cause unrest and apprehension, the ones you keep quiet about and pretend they don’t exist because others do not want to see them and don’t know how to handle them. Do I know how to handle them? Maybe all I have to do is to simply allow them to flow through me, like what I am feeling about him right now.
