Lover's Embrace

By Frida Mehtala

I wanted your words to be true. Wouldn't see beneath the surface for fear of what I would find. But nothing hurts more deeply than a false truth. Yet two lovers seldom meet this way and turn the tide. At the bottom of the ocean everything is dark, and washed ashore lies the bodies of two beating hearts.

Frida is a storyteller and forest wanderer from the Northern hemisphere with a sweet spot for cats, books and all things odd and quirky. Her disabilities are anxiety and BPD.
