Silent Witness

She still had time before the dreaded engagement with aloof acquaintances.

After the suffocating train ride, the city was intriguingly blissful, despite the hundreds of strangers.

The near by park, with grounds lusciously covered with fallen autumn leaves, was calling her. Shortly, she stood right in the middle of the field, with the leaves beneath her feet, making delicious rattling sounds; swiftly taking her back to happy childhood memories.

She then intuitively gazed to the right, just to witness the moment she’d been summoned to see: two human silhouettes, locked in an embrace, relishing togetherness, and a kiss that sent shivers down her back. She froze in time, drawing upon the energy that lit the entire park. Reminiscing in silence the connection she once had with her own lover.

After some time she spontaneously started walking back towards the city lights, ready to face the desolate reality again.
