Free from What I Used To (Daily Prompt)

“What do you find more unbearable: watching a video of yourself, or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?” – Daily Prompt

Their laughs ring around the room. Loud shouts and ear-piercing screams only because of a cell phone one is holding. A muffled sounds and drunken voices can be heard. I just close my eyes as I sit at one corner, deflecting any humored-covered eyes.

I breathe deeply. My blood stops flowing through my veins and my mind is possessing incoherent thoughts like death and suicide.

I’m not one of them, but I decided yesterday and I hate the outcome. I can’t bear the video they’re playing, how I freely lose myself just to follow the sea’s waves.
