She Heard It...

10.05.2009




She hears it.  She tries to open her eyes but they are cemented shut leaving her to view only the lovely slideshow that causes the corners of her mouth to slowly journey upward. Her chest grows tight and her throat closes up causing her to, slightly, gasp for her next breath of air. The hair on her neck lifts itself upward pulling bits of her skin with it creating tiny bumps, and she shutters. Her elbows lock but her fingertips soften and her hands relax. Her stomach feels like she was just dropped six stories, and now there is a faint burning. Her legs lay heavy, burdening the rest of her body. And she tenses at her feet, curling each toe with a flirting forcefulness. She's lost control. Because she heard it. She heard his voice, and she's in love.

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
