Leaving

There’s much twisting and turning before mom yanks us from grandma,
the way you would a loose tooth still hanging onto skin.

It’s a bloody mess~

The swelling of the leaving~

Another goodbye.

(Trifecta’s challenge word is tooth.)

  1. Nice job using the tooth pulling metaphor to describe the anguish that comes from having to leave someone you love. God bless Grandmas everywhere. 🙂
