October 8: Gimme Some Sugar

To the girl who didn’t need another bad guy…

She talked in love, but just enough to hide from the pain she once knew. One day she was tugged from the school bus and told to walk because the city had a skyline and views he begged her to see. The hold of his hand and the strength in his pull gave her an urged sense of exploration and fresh feeling of trust- until a sudden fork in the road left her to pave alone. As quickly as it had opened, the pathway was closed out of fear that this trail was permanently unsafe. Waking up the next day, she walked to the bus stop and peered down the street. The world stood still as she determined her next move. You’ve seen few too many skylines to stop now.
