Happy Valentine’s Day to those celebrating. 🙂 And to those not, well, we can ignore it together with a FridayPhrases post. Check the link for info on this Twitter microfiction event.
This week’s theme (which I loved): In denial
In denial about the truth of her heart, about the dark corner that was slowly spreading, taking her over. Denial can only last so long.
She shuts her eyes. Denial. Block it out. Pretend it doesn’t exist. But it does. She’s going to have to look. Face it. One day.
Denial is the bones showing through her skin, the hollows of her cheeks, the dullness of her eyes. It is the pain in her empty stomach.
