Today

I'm a year older.
I'll walk in the middle of the square and stand still for moment, thinking about how 365 days ago I was standing in this exact same spot.
That day feels so far away. The ones in between seem weightless. Still I remember living them as though they were incapacitating burdens that I would never shake off. I can't say when they gradually shifted into lightweight puffs of hours, minutes, and seconds and I can't remember when the days began to float off on currents of air.
But they did.
And today, here I am, a year older.

  4. Happy belated birthday, sweetie. I hope you enjoyed it, as well as I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I know how that feels, time seems so impossible to understand, some days pass as if they never existed. It's painful somehow.

  6. Thank you for suggesting, I'll try to find it and comment about that novel)

    Byt the way you're no just older. You're one year wiser. Better. Every day/week/year you're becoming closer to the perfection
    So you mustn't be afraid or upset. Nothing happens for bad things
