her wrinkled pages

11.14.18 ⎟ 18:04

her story⎯⎯much of it damp and distorted by tears.

ink runs, smudges and bleeds underneath her shaking hand. she rushes to smooth out the imperfections but the stains begin to set in, the moisture wrinkling the crisp pages.

she wants so terribly to rewrite everything, to erase herself and reinvent herself. yet to lose so much would be… would be… to great to give.

so she turns the page and makes a new mark.

her hands will tear and scar⎯⎯will heal and find warmth. she will fill thousands of pages, each word she writes carries weight, and in the end, they are all her being.

ultimately, bruised and beautiful.
