Drabble: Fragmentation


Time’s going by in shards and fragments now. It started small, like a flickery movie projection, but the intervals grew, time freezing, hanging on an image, then jumping to another moment to catch up with itself. Now, at times, it can be the better part of an hour before the next comes along.

This arrangement is not without its benefits. I have plenty of time to analyze every moment, and to do so in the moment, no filter of retrospection.

Some day, will I freeze entirely? Perhaps it’ll come down to one solitary moment. I hope it’s a good one.
