“I am right behind you.” she said. Where once she stood, now there is only a patch of dry blood. I still can’t shake this buzzing in my ears. The doctor assures me it is temporary, caused by a grenade blast. It’s surreal standing in this intact room, when only few steps from here one life was erased.
Once we were kids playing in the same band, dreaming big dreams. Once we were best friends.
Today she is a casualty of war…And I am a stranger in my own life.
A new flag is raised above the city ruins. Nothing lasts forever.
I love Tears for Fears version, but this one suited my story more.
