Ligo Haibun Challenge – Torturous Love!

I Suppose

Lying midst scattered remnants of reality, I do not care to move, curled up in a fetal position, hugging knees tightly to my chest. The position, an instinctive leftover memory of safeness, I suppose. Am I fragile? I suppose so. Does a butterfly have wings that can be pulled off? Yes, I suppose this is true also.

The pain is overwhelming, you know. I don’t suppose you care. But if you did … if you did, the sweet sorrow from the tortuous pain you left me in, would be your undoing … or maybe not, I suppose.

my tortured soul
from rapture to exquisite pain
lies comotose

Do remember, this is a work of fiction everyone, I couldn’t be further from that state of existence if I tried. My days right now are full up with tennis (giving lessons), writing and drawing, enjoying family (baking) and the Autumn of things, and, of course, being online creating and inspiring others, along with you!
