I wonder why it comes so easily, with those i care about being my inspiration, the words move smoother, my heart grows softer and my love of writing intensifies. Certain types of people bring out better qualities in others, where as some drive a passion so fiercely, the only way to manage it is to get the feelings out, written. Take your time when crafting anything. Patience is a virtue, nor can you rush art.
Her soft, grey eyes watering with a fresh roil of tears ready to spill, her pale cheeks flushed a bright red that touched the end of her small and slender nose. Her soft-as-a-rose-is-red lips, trembling as she let her troubles and demons swallow her whole, then come bursting forth with the force of a collapsed floodgate, utterly wracking her body with earth trembling sobs as the burden of tears flowed effortlessly down her cheeks and onto the concrete floor below.
He noticed soft, red rings faintly visible around her eyelids, managing to catch a brief glance as she lifted her sunglasses to dab away the last of her runaway tears.
