dense wood, rocks, and seashells

The wind reminds me of her…

By David BrandyPublished about a year ago 1 min read

Frayed rope holding chunks of dense wood, rocks, and seashells knock together. The wind reminds me of her…

My teeth tear through flesh and my mind skips a beat... I offer her some… Fire fills the cabin, my mind fills with panic. I run for the door but there he is, blocking me. I shout with smoke in my lungs masquerading as oxygen.

He fears her.

Dense wood, seashells, and rocks save me. I wake up to the cabin unburnt. Hand still offering no one a bite of rabbit. The wind saved me… because the wind reminds me of her….

    This is so atmospheric, David. I'm not totally sure what's going on but I don't think that matters because it's like a dream - indistinct and yet, vivid simultaneously. I liked it.
