On another cold Sunday morning and up alone while everyone else sleeps, I made my way through some photos from only a few lives ago.
Damn it. How can it be that so much has changed?
No longer little girls, smiles have been replaced by the brooding of young adulthood (oh could I have stopped time and taken a number amongst the long line of dreamers who’ve gone before– like I’m covering some new ground here).
Where are they now? Locked away in their thoughts; comprehending the slights and arguments that the passing of time slowly uncovered.
I was a hero then; maybe. In my own mind. The delusion made it easier to go on.
Now what? More tears. The passing of time is a mirror which haunts me.
And today it’s speaking back a little louder than usual.
