driving home from work yesterday, i realized something.
i've mistaken the lyrics to my favorite song. for six years now.
and it's not a huge difference. just a pronoun.
but it filled me with a profound sadness and slight case of mistaken identity. who am i if not the girl who knows every word to passing afternoon? who turns it on when the clouds hang low in the sky and the highway is gloomy with the sad stares of people going home?
suddenly, even the melodic hum of the radio and the spin of the tires beneath my wheels wasn't enough to comfort me, and i rode the rest of the way in silence.
for silence never betrays.
