The Turns

As the wheels turn, she feels both strong and weak. Riding uphill, she found the freedom that flying didn’t offer.

She wished the clock turned back, to leave those words unsaid, so that their relationship wouldn’t have taken that turn.

His solicitude followed her in all turns of their lives; Both returned back to normal, but that’s a new normal.

The last two tiny tales above can be read collectively or also be treated as individual ones.

      I agree, Shweta. However, it isn’t true only with harsh ones. Sometimes, even sweet words hurt. I’m not sure if you could associate this thought with the tales, but they’re written from one such perspective.

      Thank you for your warm feedback, Shweta!
