Sounds of Strength

     I no longer want to hear the voices.  I used to take comfort in the distraction.  I craved disruption.  The stirring up and upheaval taking me off task and sending me into worlds I could visit without having to participate.  Now, I desire to be present even in my loneliness.

Angst

     Sporadic patches of moonlight sprinkled her path beneath the trees.  He waited.  “You came back,” he beamed grabbing her hand.  They scurried halfway across the bridge before she stopped.  Her eagerness had overshadowed her fears only for a moment.  “No!” he cried as she leaped over the wall.  Gone, again.

Familiar

     “I love you”, he pushed out with a soft quiver.  His words warmed her ear like a fireplace, in a small room, on a quiet winter night.  Her teeth clenched.  She swallowed his scent. Both bodies vibrated.  They made waves like a ship as they eased toward the tower’s light.

Stamina

  They shared two nights of passion and a lifetime of confusion.  She loved everything about him. That scared her. She pushed him away.  He found peace with her but he was taught that girls like her were not worthy.  Having a child made it worse. But neither could walk away.

When It Hurts But You Stay

     She had a way about her.  A smile he couldn't trust. It symbolized dishonor and defeat. Her laughter traveled through the room and coiled around his neck.  Though he wanted to walk away, there was no leaving her.  He needed to stay. She’d love him better for it, one day.

Falling For You

     Before unlocking the door, Shelby took a deep breath. “Just stay cool,” she whispered to herself.  Startled, by her friend’s golden retriever, she ran toward the kitchen, slipped and hit her head on the counter.  When Shelby woke up, Leon was standing over her with an ice pack. She fainted.

Growth in Solace

     She saw herself in the trees.  Steady at the root. A strong core and skin as vulnerable as branches weighed down by snow.  The season had come for her to bare it all, leaving a bed of triumphs and tears on the ground. In due time, her fruit would show.

Edible Eros

     They say food is the best way to a man’s heart, Amelia stood on that belief.  She chopped up the apples she received from the old woman in the forest, hoping that the spell would work.  Amelia knew that deep down, Eric loved her.  After dessert, he’d know it too.

Home for the Holidays

     To avoid spending another drama filled Christmas with her family, Tanya told her boss she would work the Christmas Eve rush.  While lying on the ground with a gun pointed at her head, Tanya told herself that she was moving back to her hometown if she made it out alive.

The Veils of Consciousness

     Her face held the wisdom of the women who came before her.  If only she could see herself.  The world she was born into wanted her to wear labels.  She was hidden behind a mask made from the lies they told until the day she learned to peel the layers.
