Too Close for Comfort

December 19, 2008
By Keegan La Schiava, Palatine, IL

Bitter, Rigid and Irate
She turned her back and let their harsh words fall
There was no way to escape the tussle
Trying to claw out of the battle unscathed
No sight of success near enough to grasp.
Her feelings decimated like a starved wolf that has just come across a naive rabbit Thrown across the room as she struggles to recompose, hitting the floor
She casts one final glance to her adversary and collapses into a heap
To tired to fight,
No will power left
She slips away from the hard ground
And finds she is finally able to end the pain they caused her

The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this was a fude I had with one of my best friends. She betrayed me and stabbed my heart out. Since that time, I have learned to let go and to not let her cruel mistakes change the person I have always planned on being- strong, indepenedent, and loyal.
