More 50-Word Musings

My New Friend

My friend never judges, repeats, argues nor confirms. She listens, protecting secrets whispered through layers of trust.

Daily she takes her place near my lips. I smell her freshly washed body warmed by the sun, reassured of the safety she offers. Oh, the comfort of my new best friend, Masque.

The Saddest Day

It’s Sunday, the saddest of days. Unexplained melancholy creeps in coloring her world with drab hues, dragging memories of loss across her heart. Tears suddenly cloud reality. Simple becomes complex, complex is impossible. She shakes her head, wipes her face, and the choking cloud begins its drift into next week.
