Stolen InnocenceMore Like This
She spun in circles, arms out and glazed eyes to the sky. Her dress spinning in an orb-like bubble around her. People covered their children's curious glances hoping they wouldn't catch her flight of pure insanity. Literature and numbers were a foreign subject to her but she knew how to survive, a rare skill gifted to only the most fortunate.
The streets full of beggars like herself, knew her as the innocent girl that possessed only one friend, an unnamed, a rascal like herself, known for his protective stance and stature over her. A boy of her age and a comforting embrace when she remembered that she possessed no family nor home of her own. 'The lucky ones,' as he called them, looked over at her ragged pitiful clothes in disgust but she smiled and radiated in ignorant bliss. In this world of utter cruelness, she imagined herself to be a princess, one day to be found and rescued, all the while the little boy played with rats to help him ease the pain of society's bitter rejection.

I am cold.
Here I stand,
In the freezing cold.
My hands are freezing,
And I can't feel my feet at all.
Plus my legs and arms are shaking.
Here I wait, patiently in beatiful fresh snow,
Because I know that when you come back to me,
I will surely be warm again, just by the touch of your hand.

She had not the physique of a model. No bold beauty, no charming gracefulness, and absolutely no sweet innocence. Just the look. The look of a young lady, blossoming into a captivating woman.

Finally my day picks up from the hell it was left in.
I sit outside waiting around.
Thirty minutes in the humid heat, I walk my ass back inside the air conditioning.
Ten minutes later I feel the need to give up hope.
Two minutes later, a face appears at my glass door knocking.
I tell you all that's happened throughout the day as you send me an empathetic look.
Next I find myself reading your tarot cards.
They all explain how you're going to find a new love, relationship, and gain trustworthiness.
"What happens if I touch you while I go through these cards?"
I shrug unsure of what could happen.
"Maybe it might mix our energy. Wanna try it?"
I nod as you lay your hand over mine.
Sucking in a breath, I pray for what comes next.
You pull The Lovers.
My heart races.
