Girl in Progress

by lynnkennison

Enraptured

Captured

Held beneath his gaze

Longing

Wanting

Her heart’s seen better days

The upside of loss

Emotions moving up

The downside of love

Feeling too much

Her rivers wind down

Currents flowing smooth

Her skies clear up

Stars passing through

No reason to run

No reason to rush

When time decides to shift

Her world will open up

No pretending

Unyielding

Steady as she goes

One foot behind the other

Destinations unknown

No more thunder in her thoughts

No more rain behind her eyes

The morning sun slipping in

Filling fractures, healing time
