Memory in My Pocket

I found a memory folded in a paper. I read it and it hit me. The memory was not meant to meet me. It was draped with words that were very loud. Terse and cold.

Naively I searched around for Rosie.K but the wind made my eyes wet instead. I read and re-read the memory as if it would reveal some more of it through magical words.

My friend said that same happens with her, especially during the exam days. One thing or the other comes up to distract us- the sincere ones. And then we laugh on our brazenness. So anyways, this is a puzzle shared by all, I guess. What do you say?
