Walk of Happiness

They were walking side by side. The conversation vanished long ago but their connection is just evolving. Their steps synchronized and, once in a while, they look at each other. Those glances were full of shame but, with the acceptance that there was nothing else to say, became full of complicity. At the end of the day, there is only happiness. Although they can no longer remember where they were or what they said before the silence took place, they are not going to forget their complicity.

Someone's Flake

The smell should have been enough to give it away but I could only realize that I was in the middle of a crime scene when a freaking flake landed on the tip of my nose. There is nothing burning now but it sure smelled like there is. Well, something was a few minutes ago. Now I only see a pile of ashes on the ground and tons of them in the air. I suddenly realize that as I am breathing I am inhaling bits of people. This is not how I pictured my life when I joined the love of my life in a romantic trip across the country. I don’t know where he is and there are parts of someone that he probably killed inside of me. I need to get out of this room and run.
