Excellent storytelling and metaphors. I feel I am there listening to the stories myself. celluloid past, abject adolescent atrocities- also enjoyed the language. Thanks for sharing.
Absolutely LOVE this one! Opening line had me hooked. Vivid metaphors of scars and dreams. The tone is set early on for the sobering truth revealed in the last stanza.
So true! Frustrating isn't it. We can all relate to this. Thanks for sharing.
