she saw inside him…

wasn’t ‘fraid of anything…that was his weakness…he’d take on any man…bar room fights…argue with jealous husbands…played chicken out on the stretch of road north of town…just wouldn’t back down…

but he was scared to death of her…thought she had powers…could cut right through him like a blade on butter….she saw what he was…and he knew it…couldn’t hide from her…tried with a lot of macho bravado…that only went so far…

she saw inside of him… this man who’d leave her one day…take off to rob gas stations…holdin’ up check cashin’ joints…a modern day Jesse James…goin’ off from town to town endin’ up God knows where…just runnin’…always runnin’…

looked in his eyes and she saw fear…a real genuine fear…the kind that don’t go away…some kinda’ desperado…a lone prairie man who once he left her…would be on his own forever…no lovin’…no peace…just a torn up gut cryin’ out in silence…

she saw inside this man…she saw inside him…

The writing is based on my surroundings and what I've been surrounded by. This language is coarse and politically incorrect; which I make no apologies for. These characters are not nice and to use any other dialogue would be disingenuine. That being said, I choose to roll the dice. dm seay
