in my 2 month long stay with my family, devoid of friends and broader community, i felt i lost my coping mechanism. i felt i didnt know how to navigate the confusion and emptiness that overwhelmed me. i didnt know how to relate to people in other parts of my mind.

i regained it gradually when i returned back to this place i call home. and now, i wanna know what it is, lest i forget again, and be thrown into transitions that leave me feeling trampled.
