~There is definitely something very calming about talking to strangers. Confessing your darkest secrets is now easier. If you turn back and take a look, all the memories that you chose to forget but couldn't are dark, humiliating or hurtful. Thinking about it itself can be as pain inflicting as reliving the memory. But when you're certain that you'd never have to face a person again in your life, you find the courage to open up. You are your nicest version to a stranger you just met. You know nothing about him nor he knows you, it's a blank page. Meeting a stranger is equal to starting new, what you say is what that person thinks you are. It can feel like redemption, a getaway from the sore of your reality. The conversation you start there, ends there. You don't have to worry about the lies that you just fabricated. Cause you really don't care if he bought it, what matters is that he listened. Talking to a stranger works the same way as scribbling your emotions on a piece of paper and burning it to ashes. We all fall for momentary things, we all fall for lies. @paulahawkins2010 's 'The Girl On The Train' was a good read.✨
The nearest station from home is only 10 mins away. And at nights when darkness and silence triumphs, you can hear the air horn of the passing trains. I heard one as I completed typing this last night.
