When another tragedy sneaked its way into her already fractured world, she tried to pick up all the pieces and hold them together with a scotch tape. It held remarkably well for the longest time.
World moved on at its usual pace and she fell behind. With time she mastered the smiles of reassurement, avoiding those awkward moments when people ask you how you feel, hoping you wont break down in front of them.
Although the scotch tape still holds her together, few little pieces are irreversibly lost and she wonders when will it all fall apart.
For Irena…always and forever.
