Irrevocably Changed

He reached for me. I hoped my flinch would be imperceptible. It wasn’t.

“Why won’t you let me get close to you?” He asked.

“You don’t know me,” I said. “I’ve done terrible things.”

He looked at me kindly; not with the scrutinising gaze I expected.

“These things,” he said. “Are you going to do them again?”

“I hope not.”

He pointed towards the full moon.

“Each time we see one of those, the world has irrevocably changed. Become the person you want to be; not the person you were.”

He reached for me again.

I surrendered to his touch.
