A sad weight lingers in the quiet
As memories overpower the present
Like a movie reel, constantly in motion.
Scenes flash by, each one with its own feeling;
Timidity, joy, sadness, love, heartbreak, uncertainty.
Unrelenting in their efforts to burden the viewer.
Tears slip silently from her eyes; watching, remembering.
Unable to turn away.
Wishing uncertainty would end.
