The Difficult Woman

Hello Wild Ones💖💖💖,

I hope you are well and doing great. My prayer is that you are loving yourself right. I am currently full of hope and grace.

It has been a while since I wrote a fiction tale. I tried to force myself to finish The Texts series but I didn’t have the psyche. After reading “The Restaurant“, I was inspired to try today.

The Sea

She sits on the edge of the sea

This sea that she has swam in before

It’s easy to remember the warmth of the water

But then the vivid view of a wrecking ship and sharks comes in view

Every bone in her body aches for sea

She wants to jump into this ship

She has the beauty of the voyage flashes before her eyes

But it’s never that easy after a trauma

How do you know that this ship right

What if it wrecks and leaving sinking at sea

May be you can’t survive this time

What if what if what if what if

It is really hard to love when you have been hurt

The Difficult Woman

She was walking around feeling like she didn’t belong in this world. (Lemme catch you up) After loving someone who made me feel like she was too complex, she always felt she was too much. She tried to be the most simplified version for them but still, she was never understood. My guess is that when you are not seeking to read a book, you will never enjoy it even when it’s smeared on you. She lay the cards for him but he would never play. The danger of love is that sometimes you refuse the worst in your beloved even when it’s laid on with concrete evidence. Like a great lover, she decided that hers was a poem too difficult and a story too long but he at least he stuck around, he must love her.

Difficult woman, average looks, just okay body so lucky to have this man beautiful angel from heaven. Isn’t she lucky? Difficult woman is loved. The eighth wonder of the world. The difficult woman got hurt by her angel but he is an angel. Difficult woman, you must have done something wrong. Average looking difficult woman buy new clothes maybe you will better. You with the just-okay body, he hurt you again and again but he says he loves me. With just a little fixing, you will be fine. Difficult woman is bitter and sad. Begging to be seen. Hoping to be loved. Difficult woman is broken and he has left. A difficult woman is broken woman. Broken woman doesn’t belong. (All caught up)

The Broken Woman

Broken woman just trying to survive each day stumbles other. He looks at her like she made a million dollars and for the first time in a long time she feels she is going to be okay. Not because he said it, but because his Pollyanna spirit was too infectious. His existence just sends ripples of hope and joy within her not the butterfly kind but the mature sensible kind. He resurrects feelings that were buried a long time ago and introduces feelings that are beyond imagination. Broken woman is a woman swooning. A woman impressed. But wait she is still working progress. Still reattaching her wings and healing.

So should she just jump on this ship full of promises or wait???

    Speaking as a difficult woman, I’m constantly gaslighting myself. Loved this💯

      I have actually been thinking, how easy it is to gaslight yourself and never hold yourself accountable for it. This is something we ought to unlearn. Thank you for reading

    I think I’m the broken woman made whole by the look on his face… occasionally, I find myself feeling like her again and have to remind myself of the blessings in life! For me, cinnamon buns not saffron, thank you 😛
