three word wednesday - Her Life

HER LIFE



She was caught in the web of love
long before she knew the difference between drifting carelessly on attention
and enjoying the comfort of a soulmate.
She lost herself in his refined playfulness,
untill he took her childhooddreams and everything she could become.
In a last fragile attempt to gain control for those she loved
she asked him for money to buy a crib with dreamy lace and fluff,
but all she got was a second hand bed that collected her tears.

Untill that morning, when she found her baby,
tangled between the sheets and the blanket,
like nature had woven a cloth to show her her fate.

The blue-grey face rested in her hands
when suddenly she understood that nature paints the stories of lives
with large strokes on the canvas of the earth.
