Day Three Hundred and Sixty Five: 23 July 2013

it all began a year ago today
brewed under the comforting blanket of night
then daunting in the stark light of day
a silent screaming challenge
a pinky finger promise
issued from me to me
a test to be passed or failed

forward suddenly 365 days
and hours of introspection
buckets of tears overflowing
boxes of broken crayons piled high
reams of tactile handmade paper
floating in the cyber-cloud for all to see
but not to touch
