Writing Streak Week 2 Day 2 - wistessence

July 21, 2020



wistessence is the essence of wistfulness. slipping into conversations about the past and inspiring a craving for the future, it is heartache in the most unassuming way. it doesn't hit like a car accident or runaway wildebeest herd. no, it paints itself all over the quiet memories. this is the color of a sharp breath inwards as you wish for more while telling yourself it's impossible. but wistessence tells you that maybe you should try anyway; leap out of the nest and join your daydreams in the sky.
