Broken strings & Pretty things

The world, seen through a young girl's eyes.

Rejection.

A sever to the heart. A boulder to the esophagus. A wrenching to the stomach.
For the tiniest moment, the world stops. Everything stops. The birds, the trees, the busy streets. They all suddenly pause in the midst of a heartbeat.
Silence.

Then, just as quickly as the emptiness fell, a catastrophic whirlwind dominates every face of the earth. Shrieks of terror and calamity flood the vicinity of your ears as everything once built-in the reality of your mind is uncovered and chortles at your naive misconceptions. Internal voices scoff at the ludicrousness of your ideas: that you actually thought that it was going to happen.
Don’t be silly, you’re not good enough.

A cold, hard reality hits the face with resounding tremors. Enlightenment of a much darker kind. Everything now slowly makes sense: the little pieces of the puzzle you never quite wanted to believe. The shadows that were only peripheral in the midst of your frolicking.
Silly girl. You should have known better. When will you ever learn?
