Each exit from the path was a risk

You never knew how people
 would react 
to a girl stealing to save her pointless life

Smoke whipped and curved from this chimney.
She imagined it was her house before she broke all the windows.

A single dash
a leap
and she could take
a neat rock through the window
able to warm herself just with the thought
what wonders and fears 
might await her 
on her next twirl.

It was a walk in the park 
the whispers 
of leaves in the trees
the clouds part 
and the sun beams 

It was almost as though 
they were trying to speak
 but did not have tongues 
How very many times 
has she declined the offer
to take a stroll with Mr Craven.

'I don't know if I've ever been so very bored or boring,' thought Fanny
For 16 Weeks 
she had be going though
 the courting motions 
the motions of courting 
without the emotions
of love 

You don't like me do you Fanny?

Her sisters had 
teased her so
 about his attentions toward her

but it was not until 
she had read of her beloved 
Mr Rainer having
 run off with some rich mans wife
It was then
 that very day
 she excepted to offer

What a bad case
how sad it is 
to have lost the dream 
her dream
the romance with Mr Rainer seemed to be dissolving 
and she could, 
would and did
 directly blame Mr Craven now 
she could see him
 right beside 
her acting as if he had know idea that she hated him.

And then

and then
He's going to bite me 
I've a mouth full of pins
I'll stick pins in his mouth
 if he tries to kiss me 
he'll be in for a shock

Oh god he's bending down
No No NO
I'm stuck I'm stuck I'm stuck I'm stuck I'm stuck

without the bother of elemental exposure 
Admiring the woman in a bell jar
he could stare at her for hours
safe both from herself and the elements 

how long he wondered could they survive like this
and a smile crawled over his lips...

They had not taken more than a weeks break from travel
 He said it was to keep the cob webs from growing

But in truth it was to keep the past behind them 
They where trying to loose a part of themselves
keeping parts hidden both from themselves and one another

They had not yet had a single argument
 her mouth was bandaged 
and he was not ready to reveal this part of himself
