Invisible Prison

 

Memories fly in front of her eyes, like a movie screen come to life. Scenes play out of past memories of them together, good and bad, making her heart ache with a pain deeper than the Grand Canyon. These moments hit her when everything is quiet, coming to her mind to make her feel over and over again what it was once like to love. A heavy memory flies by; her laying in his bed, cool sheets tangled about their hips. He looks at her with lust in his eyes while ghosting his fingers up and down her sleek back. The action meant to be comforting, but makes fire burn in her blood for him. The memory pushes through her eyes, forming salty tears that bleed from her eyes and trail down her cheeks. These type of memories, flying through her mind, form an invisible prison around her brain. Trapping her in her own head, forcing her to feel and think and regret. She was scared, she thought she was doing the right thing for both of them. He would have been unhappy being with her, hell! she was unhappy being with herself. So, she made a choice to end it before either of them got in too deep, before heartache turned into soul break. But sitting here now though, she wonders if she let it go to far already because she’s feeling more broken than just sore. Thoughts rage of ‘what if’s’ breaking her heart into a million pieces. Did she make a mistake? Even if she did, it too late now. The look in his eyes as she left was soul wrenching, disappointment, pain, and anger all mixed into deep blue eyes. And now, those eyes and these memories would be her invisible prison, her own private cell of solitary.
