My Reflection


Their applause and encouragement were drugs to my blood. I was more active, happy and felt like i could do anything with them around me. Everyone around me encouraged me to sail along. Everything was in my favour, the pleasant sun, the cool breeze sailing past us, the beautiful butterflies feeding on the dazzling flowers, the chirrups of the small birds flying around - I was in heaven. I could see happiness in every eye that met mine.

But in that ecstatic state, i slipped. I was carried away too far by the encore and one mistake was all it took. There was dead silence all around.
I was lost.

With a bleeding heart, I looked around for a caring soul, for a loving heart, for a smiling lips only to stare at the emptyness around me. Tears ran down my eyes washing away any trace of euphoria that had once played along. Slowly the tears feel onto the river below me blurring my own reflection staring back at me in silence.
My only friend.
