The Lonely Journey Forward

A journey,
her journey,
the encouraging words behind
growing more faint with each step
she took forward.

Looking back,
the distant smiles,
they were indistinct representations
rather than the sincerity once shared,
or had she changed?

Given the changes,
her changes,
maybe the journey before her
was a journey for her to make alone
and they couldn't follow?

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
