Daily Prompt: Silence

via Daily Prompt: Silence

Silence. It’s just something I’ve never been able to achieve in my head yet always wanted. My brain is always churning, burning with thoughts, fears, fantasies (oh, the fantasies!), here there and everywhere. Spinning, spinning, spinning. Everything but silence. I’ve made strides. It was a lot worse, back in my younger years when everything was always so serious, so earth shattering, so important. Now I’ve lived enough of life to have that “perspective”. Jobs have been lost, possessions have been stolen, best friends have died. Stacy’s laugh is something I will never forget. It zoomed through the room, ecstatic, joyful. Now, there is silence. The kind you just don’t want to have.
