“Small, short bursts of prose?” Yes, delightfully succinct. Nods. “Clearly brilliant.” Advertisements
Connection wanted, needed even.
Fantasies fulfilled create a warm shield of protection.
But a damaging interlude pushes itself into and through our sanctuary.
Full-on, satisfying love speeding towards being barely loyal.
Distance is welcomed, disconnection required.
Wounds need healing.
The psyches teeter, the connection as well.
Alteration, on every level, begins to occur.
Layers of learning.
Life is not a restriction.
There are no standards.
Seeing you again offers up visions of days past.
I thought you were lost then.
I knew you once; who are you now?
You were the designer of a better future me.
Is the curiosity worth the investigation?
Picking up where we left off, mixing past and present, a risk worth taking?
I feel like I have control this time. I choose no.
Thoroughly breaking down flesh, abusing and
Harshly applying damaging blows to a body.
Results are a bloody carnage, the evidence is atrocious. It’s
Actively and intentionally hurting with cruel weaponry.
Sinister, name of the abuser; doling out
Hurt that is unimaginable.
My being is expressive.
It’s not complicated, just hardly understood.
Listen with your eyes as I ripple towards you.
I love, it’s a smile.
There’s anger, it’s a scowl.
Shiny eyes, I’m laughing with you.
Tears falling, there’s a devastation occurring.
Reaching for you, I need your touch.
Not making eye contact, you’ve lost me.
If the last thing you see is my back, I’m gone.
