Our Little Island

Our Little Island:

We sit on our little island – six feet by two – fearing to leave it. It is our haven, our sanctuary, our place of peace. Our island holds us, keeps us upright. If we leave it we may fall, anger or even die. We cannot leave our little island. The world is cold and hard around us, affording no peace, only noise and confusion. And pain. We dread the pain, more than we admit. But the island is not our world, and eventually we must go back – to our lives, anger and pain. But we must always remember our little island.

Awww, I just saw that you commented on my writing blog!!! You're so sweet.

I really like your stuff! I'm feeling the island -- I like the way you describe it.
