THE FACE OF YESTERDAY~by Heather Burns


 

 

THE FACE OF YESTERDAY

(prose)

As she ascended the stairs. Pausing
for a moment. Standing on the balcony
reflecting on yesterday. She turned
momentarily, her eyes scanning the
crowd of beautiful people, gathering
for a lovely evening.

Music was softly playing. Couples
were swaying to the music.It was
a magical scene.

Suddenly a pair of eyes were looking
back at her. Someone so famaliar
someone from yesterday had stepped
out of her dreams, emerged into this
life time.

He was dancing with a lovely lady.
She was visibly shaken, turning away
to regain her composure for a moment.
Thinking she must get closer, take
another look, speak to him. Somehow
capture his attention.

As she approached the stairs, she
turned once again to find the face
that eluded her so many times before.
The face of yesterday.

The lovely lady was standing, talking
with friends.Laughing in merriment.
The famaliar face was nowhere in sight.

It had vanished into the night. As if a
vapor. Was this reality or an illusion?
Her heart sank in despair.
