She had witnessed more of them being put down than anyone should; the televisions played it constantly. They were everywhere; being so small, they could hide in sheds, behind rose bushes, inside of mailboxes. Exposed, they were caught on a billion camera phones, their last moments a blur of pink and red, of whistling screams, of the slightest punch that rendered them inert.
Like popping bubble wrap, Sheila said.
Joy shivered, and hoped she would never find one on her own.

In a lone bar, a shot fired.
She dropped her glass, hid and stared: she hoped he hadn’t seen her, and her heart raced as the glass shattered through the room. Cash in hand, he cried over the dead body.
Too distracted, he hadn’t noticed her, but she was probably the only one who noticed him.

She say on the stand as she pointed across the room. He did it, she whispered. Her voice shook wih fear as the men in the back of the room stared her down. She’s never fee safe again. It’s too late to go back now, she thought. She witnessed the crime and she told the truth.

And it was that one moment in time that it all came together. The realization of what it really was…. what it meant. I had witnessed it long ago, a feeling i had felt before. But now the memories swoop through me and leave me bent. I never knew i could love again.

I am a hairspray in your mouth, a witness of your bad breath. Some tomatoes claim the right to be myself but I don’t understand words from tomatoes neither words from myself.

She could not eradicate the vision. The whole thing kept playing in a constant loop, over and over again. How long would it take for this harm to cease?

It was strange, she thought. one minute, living a life where she barely thought of this type of thing at all…and then, bam! On the way to the corner coffee shop to get her daily half venti mocha, everything changed.

I witnessed my life with you flow through my eyes in an instant of a second which turned into an hour and then a day. My life is revolving around you and my mind is spinning. I’m waiting for a meteor to stop this orbit.

What I witnessed that day would be burned into my past, present and future. All I will ever do from now has been altered by the events that transpired on that fateful evening.

Glistening witness, what’s going on in that pretty little brain of yours? I haven’t slept in 3 days and I’m waiting for a Strawberry favorite.

That thing we witnessed we won’t mention – we’ll go along with a hitch in our hearts, talk about our mundane jobs, our white noise days, and how awful they are, the damage they do to our psyches – we’ll tell each other what we’d like to do to the people who hurt us, and when we get to the killing, we’ll look away, but we’ll know what is meant and we’ll suffer for it in our dreams.
