after half of a lifetime
the curse is lifted,
and the girl is set free from her cutting bonds.
She stops thrashing, and tries to calm herself down.
Everything is so different and so strange.
She sheds a tear...
as she mourns those she must leave behind...
but despite her pain she can't help but relish the fresh air biting into her lungs,
the oxygen as it rushes into her brain,
and the bliss of complete freedom as it lightens her heart.
she runs... she runs...
free and wild...
she finds herself awake. suddenly.
again, she is free to dream.
Free to breathe deep,
Free to smile,
Free to leave.
Really, its a love story.
His love defeated their curse.
Fear was defeated in one clear stroke by
and yesterday is again put in its place.
Today starts life anew
as Spring is upon the doorstep.
There is no going back, only forwards.
(dedicated to the love of my life... may the dozen years we've had together be multiplied over and over. thank you for being my knight. I love you. always.)
