Swings

[ photo via pinterest ]

sitting
swinging
singing

head bowed
arms hanging
voice low

thinking
blinking
shrinking

gears turning
eyes wide
shoulders slumped

where did it all go?

* * *

She doesn't want to look up, only for her eyes to find the dark and terrible surroundings she calls her world. She doesn't want to go back, to the dwelling where words were spoken and exchanged but never taken back. She doesn't want to sit there forever. But that seems like the best option right now.

While she swings, she listens and thinks, sings and sinks, the only company she has is the rag doll under her fingertips.

It looks worn--just like her.
And torn--again, like her.
And used--just. like. her.
Yet loved--a foreign feeling that has been wasted.

She lifts her head to look up at the dark sky, wishing the clouds would split apart and act merciless upon her. Instead, they seem as if to slowly zip open, lightly letting down a few droplets at a time. She lets a small smile slip from her lips, suddenly wondering why her mood matches the weather--dark and gloomy, overcast and sad. She doesn't have to feel this way. She doesn't have to act this way. Things don't have to be bad--and maybe they aren't as bad as it seems.

Something catches the little light that seeps through the storm clouds, and she feels her lips stretching.

It's the silver lining, she thinks. The silver lining that every cloud has.

24 Sweet Notes

  1. Well, Rosie, I'd tell you have much I simply adored this post of upliftingness, but as you recall I've been killed by your epic flawlessness. Tell me I'm still alive and I can say how much I enjoyed your post. But nah, not now. It'd take too much time.

    So xoxo from heaven,
    Lèslie

    1. WHAT?!?!?!?! ...oh yeah...I feel really bad about that...
      You're alive. I bet you are. * studies computer screen * You seem alive. * pokes screen * You reflexes are a little off, but I don't know you personally, so I can't tell. Plus, I'm pretty sure there ain't no wifi in heaven...or is there? o.O * dramatic music *

      ... *sniffles* I wish I could hug you.

      xoxo from earth,
      Rosie

    2. :: There's something I have to tell you, Rosie. I'll get to it soon. ::

      ...do you really think I could still be alive? O-o If so, life (real, true, earth life) is good again. But how? With your impacting, epic, flawlessness nestled deep within your soul and beaming with every word you write, the strength and beauty of it sucked earth life out of this mortal here. Me.

      I love meh Rosie more than I love meh horse. Which is a lot, since I don't have a horse. But if I did I'd love it loads. And I'd still love you more. Mmmm.

      To the point:

      *le me* reads: You're alive. I bet you are. * studies computer screen * You seem alive. * pokes screen *

      *le me* bursts out laughing. {I'm serious.}

      *le mon sisters in le background* "WHAT??"

      *le me* "You wouldn't get it".

      *le me* smiles huge smile.

      * me* Golly Rosie, you're wonderful.

      ....*sniffles* gee, I think you can.

      xoxo I'm BACK ON EARTH!!!!!
