Renounce – #YDWordPrompt May 7, 2020

Written for YDWP:

He sees me differently

I hate to think I’m fat 

There’s so much more than that. 

He knows that I am smart 

And really good at art. 

I know that myths are bad 

I’d renounce them if I had 

More faith in my being 

Just like he is seeing.

Chalk outline of dead body on asphalt road texture. Overlay vector illustration.

Walking through the empty streets, Marcy had an eerie feeling of being watched. No one had returned to this part of the city since the shooting, there hadn’t even been any rain, so the outlines of bodies were still visible on the pavement. Marcy had lost count many streets ago.
