Tigress

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2019

I used to be invisible, an eroded heart and peeling skin. I allowed my own happiness to dissolve me into an abyss of nothingness; I should have known people are temporary, promises meaningless. I was alone, but I told myself I would grow back stronger, a tigress. Now I am invincible, a heart of stone and skin of thorns. Snow turned into fresh-cut grass, and I thought I gained confidence.

Shorter than the next
We remain undiscovered
Beautiful ambiguity
 
I am
My father’s daughter
Image of my mother
A loyal friend
Always thoughtful
But I am

The outside
Is picture perfect
