Most Quiet: Kayla Day
of soundlessly bold fantasies scrapping against the harsh edges of reality, falling deaf on steps untaken. within her there is a detached understanding about what to do, and yet, ever trembling are the thoughts of youthful uncertainty and self-belittlement.

'i just think you are so cool. when i was your age, i was not cool like you... you have all these interests, videos, and just how you express yourself and its so- it’s just so cool and so great. i just think you're a really special person - even if i’m not your dad, i would still think you’re a cool person.'
'...please stop.'

"basically, like- be yourself and don’t care what other people think about you, and just like ignore them if they’re being mean to you about it and everything will work out if you’re just being yourself."

a year passes, and then another. older, not wiser. less alive, more dead. nonchalant and apathetic. there's a feeling that there needs to be something more, and that i am ever undeserving of all that i have. there's a streak of coldness in the background of everything, saying that nothing matters, and nothing will ever matter. we're just fractions of dust in the universe with the audacity to think we should be anything more. and yet, a new day will begin until it doesn't, and i guess i just have to wait till then.

'don't tell my mum, her heart will break.'
faint recognition and suppressing her hurt in a way that she only knows, water droplets fell out of her eyes even though she didn't quite know why.

there are things you just have to accept. / if you want to succeed in society, you have to be willing to get a little grime on yourself. / you need to be the man who fits the scene.
repugnant laughs and seedy lights, the days mush together as turmoil builds. what had become of his life, and what was it that he was in pursuit of? of ambitions that once was and pressures of the present. somehow he'd walked on so long, he'd forgotten where he was headed, or where his intended destination was
a deadly tiredness and the ebb and flow of his fading conscience. it would only be so easy - and he knew that too. but still, an indignant hurt stirs from within and something seem to weigh down heavy on his shoulders perpetually. it only dawns upon him when he hears those oddly pitched words:
...are you a good person?

If you want to talk to someone who has difficulty reaching out to you, then you have to be the one to go in to them.

'why did you start boxing? was it to become stronger?' 'it was you who suggested I do boxing. i had never been bullied before. but you thought that i'd be bullied in high school...so, you suggested i learnt boxing.'
he barely suppresses a laugh, irony stinging within when he saw puzzled and adamant eyes of denial blinking back at him. how easily one forgets while the other had persisted. of youthful promises and stubborn pride, and yet he'd remember those words as clear as day.
'i apologize. if that’s the case, i must have changed your life dramatically.'
another puff of a light laugh leaves his mouth. if only she'd knew how much meaning those words held. perhaps his life had be thrown off trajectory from the moment she'd entered his life...and yet. he could only smile.
'well, it was your suggestion that made me start boxing. then, I suggested ogawa to do boxing... then, you met him and here we are now.' 'do you regret it?' 'i don't regret it.' '...but?' '...there's no 'but' about it.'

to people like me, people like us, this is a dream. if i could achieve it, i would pay any price. / it's not about fun, it's just that there's nothing else i want to do.

'they were nearing the surface, approaching the threshold, when, fearing losing Eurydice and impatient to see her, her loving spouse turned, and she was instantly drawn back. she reached out for his embrace and wished to hold him. her poor hands clutched only the empty air.
there is perhaps an understandable rage that rises within the reader, ever so hopeful for a happy end, to maintain a fantasy that reality was unable to offer. how simple it sounded, so reasonable it seems: he was only required to not turn around. and yet.
"he was told not to but he did, for no reason. he shouldn't have looked for fear of losing her. he was told not to do that." "there are reasons."
what would be a reason enough?
"he's madly in love. he can't resist." "he could resist. his reasons aren't serious."
if it stems from reason, then it was a decision made.
"perhaps he makes a choice: he chooses the memory of her. that's why he turns. he doesn't make the lover's choice, but the poet's."
she spoke a last farewell that scarcely reached his ears and fell back into the abyss.
"perhaps she was the one who had said, 'turn around.'"

see how my hands are placed / when you're moved, you do this with your hands / you know it all / we're in the same place
minute details etched in memory of what once was, it was always the littlest of things you'd notice about her. the way she places her hands, and what that meant. every expression, every word, every unspoken emotion that lingers within her eyes even for a silver of a forgotten second. how does one even begin to capture the sheer magnitude of these feelings?

'is that how you see of me? no life, no presence?' 'your presence is made up of fleeting moments that may lack truth.' 'well, not everything is fleeting. some feelings are deep.'

'you'll be free.' 'is being free being alone?' '...in solitude, i felt the liberty that you speak of. but i also felt your absence.'
they'd ignited a love unlike another, and naturally, they'd burn with a solitude unlike another - one that'd smoulder in the depths of one's being until the ashes of time. poignantly left in memory and in being, was a story that could only belong to them.
