I’m awake II

Once upon a time…

 

they were folded wings, going all along her back, in silver and white patterns

huge and multicolored and beautiful

this tattoo had taken a few weeks to complete

a lot of pain

but it had been worth it, in the end

as she dreamed, she slept in her dream

and awoke

and felt an itching on her spine and shoulder blades

and as she walked towards the mirror, she noticed her shadow was different

larger

bulkier

and in her shock, her muscles spasmed and she swept around her room trying to see her back

she couldn’t

but she could see, on either side of her, massive wings, quivering with her tension and unfurling more and more as she watched

…the end

maybe she’s still sleeping.
