sometimes, my head explodes

She said, perhaps April 19, 2010

I found one sparkling silver-white hair today. Amidst the ashy greys and the black that is slowly becoming overwhelmed, this single strand caught my eye. Like a prized souvenir, it glistened there full of memories… nights to forget bleeding into days to remember… broken glass and fingernails and hearts… a spine curved beneath the weight of a burdened mind… the soreness in a phantom scar that should have long been healed but never let go.

In that one thread- a life I treasure, regret, own, and belong to. All at once, there came sadness and a smile. Maybe it’s all okay.

    That was beautiful. I’m speechless and in awe of the mind that turned what many would curse about into something to treasure. You alone have changed my thought process. I no longer dread going gray and will remember your words each time I find one.

    Thank you.
