I could not bring myself through it,

That singular moment outweighed any diversions.

The changing of the seasons held no esteem with me.

No matter what I did,

My mind replayed the event over,

And over.

The gnawing of hindsight ate away at me.

I stood alone.

Like a kids first day off school,

All I wanted now was an embrace,

Someone to say it will be ok.

What if I had switched venue?

What if I had acknowledged popular Saturday instead of evil Friday?

What if I had wore different socks?

My mind veered in differing tangents.

Grasping for controlled and honest reason.

Succumbing to my last tear,

My eyes began to see again.

Loss is immeasurable.

*sigh*
you're right... it is.

- And so it was that time stood still -
     (blink, breathe, stand, fight)
