The Inner Circle

Standard

I stood on the ledge of the 80 story building staring into the black sky.
Behind me I could here Josh giving one of his damn speeches again.
“…it’s a fight for us, a fight for our generation. They took everything from us…”

I snorted. “It sure as hell doesn’t feel like it.
His hand retreated. “It’s too late to back out now Eve.” I heard the anger in his voice.
I closed my eyes.
“We’ll see.” I whispered
And jumped.

She sits inside her crystal prison, patiently waiting

Not for someone to free her

She had gave that up long ago

But for the sun to finally ascend

She needed to see what broken glass looked like in the light

Years of finding a way out of her misery

She was finally able to realize

That her prison wasn’t made by her enemies,

And with a smile upon her face
