It was that kind of day. You know, when everything seems rather mundane. You're going along doing your normal daily routines. There's a happy kind of feeling inside, and then you get hit with it! Words come at you faster than you can process them. It's not that "they" are talking fast, it's like that thing that happens during a car wreck, where everything seems to be in slow motion. Then it all speeds up, and you have hit the wall faster than you'd ever have imagined. And you sit there, bleeding from the head, pain oozing out of every pore. What just happened, you ask. What, what, what was that? I just didn't see it coming. I was watching, but it came out of nowhere. I'm sorry, so sorry, I don't know why I'm crying. I just should have known, I should have seen it coming. I should have been more careful. I looked away, just for an instant, and my dreams caught fire... and they're gone. Up in smoke... and there's no going back. I can never get it all back.
