The Turn

By Maria L. Berg

She couldn’t help but blame herself for “the turn”: the inevitable moment when everything that was going right went wrong; when everything wrong became her fault; when the most recent person she dared call friend plunged the knife in her back. She felt stupid every time: stupid for opening her heart; stupid for letting herself forget; stupid for letting the walls she meticulously rebuilt deliquesce.
