Midnight, June 8, 2005. I woke up from a nap on the couch in my apartment and sensed some deep change in myself. I went to the mirror and staring back at me was my face with green eyes. For some reason, this one moment in time has stuck with me since then. My eyes eventually shifted back to their normal blue, but I never quite understood why it happened or why I knew something was different.
I guess that's just the mystery of me.
Jump back to present, and my blue-eyed self is still trying to figure things out.
When I awoke, I came into silence. The profound weight of life was made known to me as I stared in the mirror at a new me, a different me, a new living form sharing my eyes with death.
I want that weight again.
