The Mag - 182

One love, one heart, one destiny." -  Bob Marley

Do you have any idea what she's doing?

Either she's dancing on water,
blissfully floating through the cries of a love-sick burden,
or, she's had her fill of days above this watery grave.

But, what if,


After swimming beyond her boundaries

and becoming a committee of one
she freed the red ribbons that bound her,
for her hero.
A hero is the one somebody
waiting on the other side
 out of the water.
All the while not knowing
 but willing to wait for her
to venture that first step
into the unknown, to join him.

This has the quintessential elements of a fairytale, the damsel in distress hoping for a hero to save. In order to find love we have to actually go outside not just literally but to crawl out of our shells and I think you have expressed that, Lovely =)

This has a mythological ring to it and made me hope that there was a happy ending for her.

Does a hero just wait, or reach in and rescue her?
