Flash Friday 55: Do I Scare You?

Do I Scare You…
she seemed to whisper
into his mind 
as he stole a glance
her way
looked away

God, yes
he thought,
terrified he was
when their eyes met
So many “whys”,
“what ifs”,
catching him off guard.

Questions fade,
fears eased,
releasing  tethers
strangling his heart,
when

she reached out to him




I am participating in Flash Friday 55. This weekly meme is brought to you by G-Man over at Mr. Know it All. The object is to write a story or prose in exactly 55 words. Come join us and link your 55 over in Mr. Know it All's comment section.

Love it!

I hope not to lose followers when I transition over to WP. I hope that I can still be seen in everyone's Google Reader. There's a glitch they are trying to work out with that. We'll know soon enough! Lol!

And, sorry I didn't get back to you about the radio show, I'm actually about to post a recap now of last weeks show.

It's so hard to remember what it was like, to meet someone so tentatively. Nice capture of the moment.
