Can I still reach you at the second last turn in from the bottom?

Chelsie Dysart, 24

Can I still reach you at the second last turn in from the bottom? At one point, you were one of the most important things in my life. We grew apart, but life always had a way of bringing us back together. Now that you are gone, can I still reach you?

This work is the exploration of the loss of a very personal, childhood friend due to suicide. This individual aided in me becoming the person I am today. Without him, I wouldn’t be me. The memories surrounding me of this individual being the person I stepped into my teenage adolescence with, whilst all I can remember is his pet rats in the foreground.
