Vis Dare Challenge # 9 – Alone

ALONE

I avert my eyes from
looking at you
shedding your tears
that meld with the rain
and hit the ground
I do not cry
There is nothing
you can say
to make this right
leave me to my
musing
I am alone, but I am
strong, just not today
or at this moment
my universe will heal
being without you
shall not let me
linger in this pain
I experience now
I don’t require
your penitence
I need to sit
gather thoughts
to toughen
to block
further weathering
to my heart
trust me
I’m a survivor
no need
to complicate it
any more with
your words
stop saying
you are sorry
I ask you
be silent
like the walls
Stupidity
on my part
assuming we
could be
more than
friends
We can’t
you said
so life goes on
don’t stay
and beg
forgiveness
I won’t remain
anchored
as the monument
I will move on
without you

THE CHALLENGE: Set from http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com

Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end. (No one will be ostracized for going over or under the word count.)

He startled me
in the beginning
reaching out to me
a strange land with
arm outstretched

Take hold of my hand
though it seems
forbidding I shall show
you where to go
I heard him speak

I am anchored unlike you
but I know what
you seek
I am willing
to show you the way
do not be frightened

He was cold but yet
inviting
frigid solidified
but still
comforting reassuring
asking to trust myself

I was led as I held
this hand of a statue
led to believe that
anything is possible
I just had to trust

I took…I did
