Photo Challenge #170 – The Distant Boy

The distant boy floated

His thoughts on the girl

The one who nourished his waking moments

A girl precious beyond words

With whom he longed to spend his eternity.

Like a vagabond, of no fixed address

He felt himself descend

Towards the nothing, he knew he was.

She watched as he drew close to rock bottom

Reaching out her hand

She caressed him

Gave him comfort

Her strength keeping him upright.

Looking into her eyes

He saw the love he needed

To be him, her man, her love.
