Read her eyes,

For speech had,

A reputation to lie,

Emeralds hidden,

Under auburn covers,

Could not.


Read her body,

Piercings, scars,

Curves, tattoos,

Showed troubled,

Story — whole history.


Convinced her it didn’t

Come down to his story,

But hers, her(story).

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
