HellI remained motionless for a time in the nothingness. I cant even say blackness because it wasnt black, or white, or any colour at all. I could have been there for half a second or a millennium; I had no way of telling. There was nothing. Then I felt myself begin to fall head first. I must have been upside down.Righting myself, I landed on a large, flat, smooth rock. My body ached but nothing felt broken. Looking round, I saw myself surrounded by high red rocks, lava seeping out from holes in them. Above me was blackness if there was a ceiling, it was miles away. A grey stone door in one of the walls caught my attention as I heard it creak open.A tall figure in a military uniform stepped in and began the long walk over to me. When he was close enough, I had a horrific feeling that I knew who it was. I still didnt know where I was, though Id had a pretty good guess, and if this man introduced himself as I thought he would, I wouldnt know whet
I rememberI remember taking long walks in the parkMy friends and I would spend the day bitching and laughingWhen it started to rain, we'd head to someone's houseThose times will always be some of my fondest memoriesI remember spending nights in the local barMy friends and I would drink ourselves silly and forget our worriesLouise would always drink too much and we'd carry her homeThose times will be where I go when I reminisceI remember loafing round the common roomMy friends and I would listen to music and gossip about each otherIt was a guilty pleasure because we should have been doing workThose times are remembered with fondness
Then And NowThen, we would do the same thing every week.Now, I do something different every day.Then, university was something in the distance.Now, it's very real.Then, I was in denial.Now, I accept it.Then, all their worries were my worries too.Now, I couldn't care less.Then, I didn't appriciate what I had.Now, I regret not making the most of it.Then, people were always busy.Now, people are always free.
