Patience Runs Out


Patience runs out. Sometimes she can be persuaded to stay a little longer, but now is not one of those times. These days her fuse is so much shorter. She doesn’t know her destination, just that the direction is away. People think they have her, but that is only until the same old, same old unspoken words stink up the place. When she leaves, it comes to blows. That is because she travels with her twin sister, Grace. If one goes, so does the other. And without them, I am down to the wire. Then it is teeth against bone.
