Yevrah’s Song

“Can’t Find My Way Home”

This isn’t Yevrah. I’ve lost all photos of her—photo by Marissa & Eric on Unsplash.

She was a beauty, inside and out.

I’m gay, and I fell for her. I knew that I had to have her, if only as a friend.

We met at Chicago Lakeshore Hospital, a mental/substance abuse medical center on the North Side. We had been placed on the third floor — the floor with no escape. It was a place where you were watched very closely.
