Twittering Tales #143 ~Fixable #twitteringtales


Erin was sick again and I’m back under the VW. Kids get ill, you can’t stop that. I can’t fix my little girl and I feel damn useless in her suffering. Oil drips on my face whispering a silent comfort.
“You can always fix me” is what I know this car thinks and once again, I feel strong in my  worth.

FOWC with Fandago ~Her scarred role #FOWC,


A target at their table

Her role given in this newlywed game

Silently listening to her labeled failures

She is useless in his eyes only

Different space, different face

Spoiled now from this one’s wallet

But, her performance is his agenda

Playing whore in his sick wants

A stream begins bubbling within her

Seeing value somewhere in her soul

Her fingers bleed in escaping other’s agendas

Those who led her lead no more

A current dude at her counter

Another joker spewing garbage

She now stands immune over such pathetic romeos

Those past masks now discarded leaving painful echoes

A role now is hers alone to define

This scarred warrior embracing her destiny, finally as herself
