The leaves of time fell gently as fall approached the mountains of home. Thoughts of tomorrow occupied the weary mind of all. The change of seasons brought to mind another time and place where all was right.
The weight of life lay heavy upon her shoulders as she sought to find the answers that she so desperately felt. At times, the beckoning of another overcame all sensibility. Within her thoughts she found a place to hide away as feeling took control. Her refuge offered time and space with which she could learn to accept that fate had dealt a desolate hand. Nowhere in the deck could an ace be found.
The Ace of hearts held her dreams and ignited the desires that only time could deliver. In time, nothing would be gained but plenty would be lost. The cost of such bore a heavy burden upon which nothing would stay. In his arms she could see the strength of his honor and the length of his desire.
It tempted her in visible delight but the power behind the strength overwhelmed even the faintest of time. Should she sacrifice the lessons of yesterday and take a chance or would she run into the freedom once lost. In a better time the seductions of the moment would be welcome but in the here and now, only time has been lost.
