Between Fear and Hope

Fear ricochets across her thoughts
Hope echoing within her heart
Emotions vying for domination
Leaving her exhausted and confused

She want so much to hope again
To let her walls down and trust
To let love in and let it grow
And nurture and blossom and bloom

She's afraid of going back
Only to find things haven't changed
Of putting herself in the path of pain
And getting hurt yet again

Fear and hope struggle inside
Neither emotion strong enough
To claim victory over her future
And so she'll wait and do nothing

Arctic Beauty

This is my favorite so far - another Bob Ross.
The photo doesn't do the painting justice
I'm loving this new hobby!

Her lips brushed his
ever so gently
tasting of tears
letting go
