Adventurous, not reckless, her boldness recounter to her from an outsider’s perspective like a fish out of water. Her objective was the rush, but even sirens need rest from being wicked. Swimming or sinking, she was thinking she should stay on dry land. Didn’t fairy tales always say change for your man? She found her grip but lost her guts, a sea of what-ifs and misplaced trust. Caught up in the middle, part of his world and her former. On the corner of love and lust, wishing to be what she wasn’t but the waters too murky to decipher an answer. (Lust is a cancer but love’s the silent killer.)
