The Fruit - Tasting the loneliness

“I can't face losin' ya, Riley. Yer all I got left in this world.”
That brutal honesty again. He'd peeled away more armor, and this time he'd exposed his heart.” ― Jana Oliver,
Forbidden


Words from a great author and friend, I thought you, my intelligent readers, would enjoy this:



I found this fruit.

I ate from it.

It was the most beautiful thing,

To be taken in small bites,

Taste in moderation,

Because a flavor so strong could destroy you quickly.

It was so beautiful, I couldn’t keep it to myself,

I had to share.

So I found you,

and we shared it.

But then..

You stopped picking it.


And I was the one left to muster a lonesome bite.

-R.S.L.S
