Sunday Scribblings #45 - Composed


(Photo by Daniel Southard)


Unable to steady her throbbing heart
Nor to stop the pulsating symphony in her ears,
Despite quivering fingers, and
A million larvae in her belly,
She took a chance.

RAW exposure.
Enamel flashed.
Self-confidence oozed from fingers and toes
and lips.

She remained composed.
Rocked the house.


"Brace yourself for a never-ending date with uncertainty"
