‘Find Me…please?’

VisDare55 Protective

‘Find Me…please?’

I am a shadow of myself, you can see it in my expressions, my eyes, my hunched back. Something dreadful happened to me and I cannot talk about it. But I yearn for the day, when someone I can trust, I can let in. Until that day comes, I am forever a locked box. This image of me is in the mirror each time I look. I am but a single ghost of who I was. But I want YOU to unlock what is inside me. Please reach me, I AM in here, just find me would you, I am begging you, pleading with you. Find me and stay. Here, I give you my key. Just unlock me. Because I know, I know I can trust You. So take me in your arms and tell me that everything is going to be okay. And soon, I will tell you my story.

      1. A great post full of emotion. The issues of life can be sometimes complicating. And may make one to withdrawn to one’s shell. The deepness of the feeling arose my curiousity. There supposed to be a bit of opening for the incoming person to have access to the key otherwise the task will be quite challenging. I hope i get the picture right

        1. Hi Akeem πŸ™‚ Sorry for replying so late, I got caught up in a book series I couldn’t put down!! Yes, even the most closed in person allows a slight window for the right person to come along and to let them in. We are after all human and have a need for contact with one another. I think everyone can be ‘reached’ whatever has happened to them, it just takes the right people or person to do it. Trust, I guess is the key, even then, rightly so, it’s a challenge. But it does happen – ‘Hope, Trust & Love’ πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Claudia, thanks for reading and commenting on the story. You do know this is a story writing site? That story was a work of fiction as is all my stories. They are products of my imagination inspired by the prompts I use. Maybe you are responding to the fictional person I am writing about?? It’s hard to tell. Just wanted to check that with you πŸ™‚

      1. You know…I kinda knew that. Writing is such a wonderful but deceiving outlet. Good writers can write very happy or very traumatic things, both believeable. Ive never tried tragedy for the very same reason..i didnt want people to think it was me. Your writing is awesome. I enjoy reading it.

        1. Hi Claudia πŸ™‚ Sorry for replying so late, I got caught up in a book series of four that I just couldn’t put down! I really love this comment that you left! I see your point, sometimes tragedy story’s can come across as perhaps from the authors personal experience; but it too can come from having been witness to a story of a friend or a friend of a friend, someone we know. I guess when writers start their novels with the line about the book being a product of fiction and not based on anyone specific they are just covering themselves, but it’s got to come from somewhere? I don’t know. But what I do know is how grateful I am for your words about my story’s! And happy you like them, well some!! πŸ™‚
