To me

You are beautiful and strong. You are human and you do the best you can with what you have been given. The world is a nasty place. You won’t always have someone to stand up for you accept for you. You are all you have. So take care of yourself, love yourself because you are worthy of all the love there is out there. Keep going, don’t stop believing and keep your heart soft because it is good. You are good. Remember that…

Exposed

“But then you’ll see,” she said, hands protectively over her heart.”I want to see,” was his cryptic response, his eyes appealing, begging to see what was lying beneath the protective barrier.

And so she shakily lifted her hands from  the most precious part of her. He saw it…

 She could not read his expression as he turned around, without a word, and walked out of the room leaving her confused and exposed…

Dust

“I want to be a better writer. Help me,” She pleaded. She wanted her words to touch someone. She wanted someone to connect with her ramblings.

The best advice she gave was no different to words of wisdom for the walk of life. “Keep writing… reading also helps with that.” 

And so she must keep scribbling on the page as best she can. Keep turning the page until the ink dries and soon, they will connect…

Flutters

“Stay close,” he mumured, “Don’t move too far away.”

Knowing that she had his affection made her heart flutter. It flutters often at the beauty that flows from his heart and out of his mouth.

Who knows why they work. And who cares really, because it only matters that they just work. They mesh and mould into each other. It feels like home wherever they are are together.

She’s his best friend and she revels in taking care of him… They don’t need each other, they want each other and therein lies the need- to want and not to need…

The flutters overwhelm her sometimes. But it is no longer a fear of loss but… Gratitude. Gratitude for permission to fly. Gratitude for the ability to still feel this way. Gratitude for him.
