Peanut Gallery

A Place Among The Trees

She carries her mistakes like a prison sentence. No ones perfect so logically she would never be free. Surrender reality for disbelief. She fell in love with the idea of being in love. All of that now seems so long ago… She wanted something more. When everything in her environment was saying settle for less….
