In response to Sue Vincent’s weekly #writephoto prompt of this week: Web
It was my suit of armor, the web of lies I wove. Couldn’t let them get to know the real me for then they would surely leave. I was a more interesting person with the lies. I felt powerful.
Shield yourself from the pain of rejection. Never allow them to walk away first. Don’t give them the power of thinking they have your number!
When I choose to, I can peel off the armor and free myself of the weight of it all. But who am I fooling? It’s just another lie I tell to make myself feel strong.
