I fear the fireworks. It terrifies me so much that I cannot breathe. I imagine if I told them an ounce of how rude and horrible and mean they are, if I said anything at all ...
So I stay still, and quiet, and proffer my everything with my head bowed in the hope that they will one day see that they take too much.
Yes. I know.
I am broken too.
This is my entry for this week's Trifecta Writing Challenge, after many weeks of absence. In its way, it seems like a lifetime, but taking a small step back into the fray is, indeed, comforting. I've missed you.
As usual, we are using the third definition of a word selected by those crafty-but-cute Trifecta editors. I personally picture them with horns.
1: a device for producing a striking display by the combustion of explosive or flammable compositions
