Written as part of a challenge called Friday fictioneers,

My keen sense reminds me how stupid I am.  The signs are obvious to those outside.  Nearsightedness is a hazard in relationships.

I’m in my third minute of standing in silent treatment.   My eyes have already looked her over.   I have probed the body armor for weak spots.  The fences are sharp. No trespassing signs posted.

I surrender to the moment.   One sigh at a time.

“Have it your way then.”  I resign my post turning away

    1. It takes one to build a fence and two to remove it. Barriers have a way of growing. We work past them, much like a hoarder walking through a house with garbage covering the floor. Balance is a place where you should never need it. 😀

  1. Brilliant execution in style and the tension is so clearly felt. Perfect capture of one aspect and essence of a relationship – and definitely a great take on the image 🙂
