Her aging, yellowed skin matches the color of the newspaper clipping she holds in her trembling hands. Ancient wounds feel fresh and raw. Why does she torment herself so? Studying the old obituary she remembers the accusation: “It’s all your fault!” It wasn’t, but she can’t make herself believe otherwise. Her internal war rages on.
Please feel free to ponder and leave your ideas in my comments section: Who is the accuser? Whose obituary is she studying? What are those "ancient wounds"? Is there a reason her skin is "yellow"?
