It’s the infinite moment. When you know you’ve made a mistake, and all you want to do is take it back. But you can’t. The damage is done.
………….The infinite moment. It’s disbelief at first. Acceptance slowly washes over you like a rising tide, and as it rises, it gets harder to breathe. You feel like your drowning, but there’s no panic. Because for that airless moment, you really wish you really would stop breathing. You pray for it even. But the moment passes and you inhale. And as seconds unfold, you witness a nightmare come true.
…………..Disbelief makes you question every action you made, every passed event. You deny the truth like it was a lie, and you review everything in your mind over and over, trying to find something to prove it all isn’t real. Over and over, from the beginning…
