Safely, #November Notes Day 4

#November Notes Day 4, Song: Between the Lines


She safely practiced life. Bandages ready for wounds not made. Smooth routes chosen, no bumps, no cliffs, no surprises. Decisions for love loomed; she hesitated, taking time she presumed existed. She heard him speak the other’s name off-handedly, filing it away under miscellany. Choosing love, choosing him, too late because while she’d been planning for what ifs,

he lived.

  1. I love that last phrase about how while she was planning the what if’s, he lived. There’s so much truth in that for all of us I think. So many spend all that time thinking what if’s instead of living and being in the moment.
