We do for others because we don't know how to do for ourselves. We do for others because we feel it is the only way to make up for the damage we feel our craziness is doing to society. We do for others because it makes us feel good when nothing else in the whole world does, not even pills. We stay quiet and sit in the corner because others seem so much more needy. We require so little, you and I. A fact which does not sit well with others who would label us as too much to handle. When in truth, all those such as us really need is a bit of understanding, a bit of reciprocation, maybe a touch on the cheek once in a while and a sly wink. The rest of the world is needy. I'd rather be crazy. ~~Aimee

Swept Away



Shallow winds dance around me as I stand in the mist. 
Watching the leaves twirling and dancing as they kiss the ground before being tossed into oblivion. 
A silent observer of their sacrifice. 
I wonder if I too could be made to disappear so easily.
If somehow the wind swirling about me could reach inside of me and pull that which is me out,
then toss me away.
My meaning and existence snuffed out in one quick puff.
As the wetness of the sky falls upon me  I close my eyes
as the coolness of the wind dances through me




This is for 100 word prompt at Velvet Verbosity. Prompt is STORM.
