Writing

Inevitably Tethered

A part of me was stolen, pinned to the sky, a cynosure for all to see.

He was kind and I was completely besotted by his velvety words.

There were no warning signs in his sapphire eyes. I should have seen the ice that resided past the warmth of his gaze.

A novice heart like my own never had a chance and somehow, a part of me always knew it wouldn’t last.

I danced and sang to the beat of his song. Entranced, I let the master of my heart take me beyond.

I let him crawl inside my body, and there he became Amadeus and I his symphony.

Wildly, passionately, he played every inch of my being.

I never thought to Pause for the slightest moment.

My body, a betrayer to my heart, responded to his lies with ecstasy.

Desire left me blind and cold in a labyrinth created by a love I could never control.

Forget what you think you know about love.

It’s much like the ocean, beautiful and mysterious, but ultimately, a deleterious path for anyone swimming with their eyes closed.

Life, Writing

Two Young Girls

Smiles and laughs. They

Sing and dance.

 

Jumping with glee.

Young girls of ten. Curly

Heads bobbing, lanky legs

Stomping, tapping.

 

One short. One tall.

Two young girls, promise

To be together always. No,

Not knowing.

 

Not knowing, this love

Of two young friends

Will last evermore.
