Moments

Moments in life only last for short seconds


But they can permanently transform to unforgettable flashbacks


The edges of her eyes crinkle when she sees her sister


But her eyes waterfall when she recalls the moments that she misses her


A specific date and time brings her to the basement


Finally seeing her sister brought to her face a glow of amazement


The glow quickly faded when she saw the marks


There were fixed red dots on her sister’s arms


She choked up and felt like she had a throat full of cotton balls


Tears ran down her cheeks like Olympic runners following their coaches’ calls


Screams of “how could you?” and “do you even care?”


Escaped her mouth and were followed by a glare


The physical marks that she saw at that moment were only temporary


But the mark in her mind is something she will always carry


These moments are thought of to only be in movies or dreams


But for this specific night and this specific girl, they are reality
