She’s been here before
having confidently walked the path towards a lover, to friends
to a world of possibilities and bliss
that soon crumbled
its foundation set in fibs, malice,
malevolence and deceit

She stands still at the crossroads again
stricken with terror at taking a step
yet they have long been forgotten
-          wispy memories of  malice and pretention cloaked in bonhomie pushed to the fringes of the mind
the fear of deception is palpable
gripping her
rendering her immobile
momentarily she hopes and prays

She knows she’s learned her lesson
she knows what has to be done
-          it has to be done
this skiamachy must cease
she whispers her mantra
-          face Fear
and steels herself for the first step
