A slime takes over a city
They’ve licked from the underbelly
Of the unfortunate
The lion wanders around
Looking for its next meal
In the very young
Or the slightly slower.
He, like a shark out of water
You would think he would pose no threat
But he is dangerous to everyone.
Shielded from the ever present danger
In the form of a fire she cannot control
Even though she would tell you she is powerful like that
Fire has always consumed instead of tamed her.
Good thing she has a method
To her madness.
That within every relationship
There lies a story
Of where she fought them away
Yet they stayed
Just to leave.
In a yard strewn with leaves
Stands a woman
Willing to admit defeat.
She throws herself to her knees
Begging for something to come along
To stop the pain she endures
To stop the loneliness she feels every minute.
Comforting her is not an option;
She is tired of temporary
Tired of the ‘hard to get’
and ‘impossible to love.’
When she gets up
She turns around
And sees ‘him’
“But what if I am so broken, I cannot be repaired?” She asked
Blue eyes crying out to his..
He whispers to her “Then I’ll take you damaged.”
Thank you to GKE, that knows what to say, to make it all better.
