Wewie it’s been a busy day as I prepare for a trip this week but I can’t go without giving at least five minutes to writing. So here’s my Five Minute Friday post with the word prompt of the day: Crowd.
beat, Beat, BEAT, BEAT!
So many people
closing in on me
sucking all my breath out of me
I am suddenly just another drop
in the vast ocean
Who am I now?
Soon the doors will open.
I’ll cling my baby close to my heart, kiss his sweet cheeks, stroke his soft hair
grasp my luggage tight
hold on for dear life
as the crowd of unfamiliar faces
smells waft up and engulf me
fill me and try to overtake me.
BREATHE! Breathe, breathe….
I can do this.
We can do this.
