Stay #MentalAwareness

Stay #MentalAwareness

Her eyes wrenched him from the clutches of reality
He was plunged to the very depths of fantasy
Their softness
Their fragility
It lent him strength
It woke purpose within desire
But alas when you wade too deep for too long,
You find things not meant to be found…

In those trenches of beauty there was fear
A dread that the outside was superficial
And the inside would always be empty
A panic that when the petals fell,
When the beauty withered,
Loneliness would remain

In her nightmare a dream took root
Sown by his pledge
Warmed by companionship
Watered by commitment
He would not abandon her to that darkness
For he had always known;
“From her heart grows a tree”
And it blooms through all seasons

I hope you enjoy this. May we never abandon anyone to depression or despair.

It’s no secret that I hugely admire Amy Rose’s photography. I got permission last month to use her images linked above.

I’m also adding a branch to Melanie’s quote prompt“from her heart grows a tree”

Stay safe everyone, Stay loving.
