Mistake

She sits in silence.

The afternoon sun filling the room.

She tries to still her mind.

You see, she made a grave mistake.

Earlier, wondering why she didn’t listen to music anymore, she searched online for her favourite high school album.

She smiled at the first riff.

Yes!

Then the lyrics.

Then the memories.

More vivid than a photo album.

Hopes.

Vows.

Sorrows.

She’s overwhelmed.

So… She turned off the music.

Now, she sits in silence.

The afternoon sun filling the room.

She tries to still her mind.
