She was self-centered and wore horse-shades.

Soft come-hithers, 'it will be okay'


Anger unjustified.

Multiplying tears…

Fears of inadequacy running wild.

She feels like a small child –

Trapped in a plump body.

All she wanted was a hug,

But didn't take one.

This is a multi-faceted, anecdotal piece overflowing with emotion with a very large dose of reality. Good stuff, Ms Lee!

Makes me think, a plate of "big hugs" on an open buffet, what she REALLY wants but passes up, choosing instead various other ingestibles that don't do the trick. Interesting visual here!
