the words have gone silent lately. it's not necessarily a bad thing. we wait quietly in the wings for the wind to change. we wear knowing smiles. we share sideways glances. there was a time when it seemed our whole lives laid in front of us. we take steps, slowly, and when we look back, time has passed and we're different from when we began. we've learned and forgotten, we know more, we know less. we close our eyes each night and reflect on the day before it vanishes into the ether, like all the days before it. we open our eyes each morning and reflect on the day to come. we blink and today is already a memory. we are wasting time, we are breathing fast, we are running blind. we are singing along and humming when we don't know the words. we are so very small.
