Slowly Falling, Barely Reaching

Bo is an artist. A poetry artist, to be exact. A girl who's muse, is the love of her life, Carter. She writes and writes about him. But things start to be different... what is Bo going to do? Nothing will ever make her heart stop loving Carter, but her mind tells her it's time to move on.

This is a short story, revolved around 'Near To You' by A Fine Frenzy.


6. Wait

Bo and Brantley started to go on more and more dates.

All were great until school started again and Bo started seeing Carter every day.

She was having it pretty hard... considering all the girls that were all over Carter now. It was just too much. She remembered that she had an amazing guy... that she really liked. They had been basically dating for a month, it just wasn't official.

There was a poem showcase the next week that her teacher wants her to perform in, but Bo hadn't wrote ANY new poems since her and Carter broke up. All she had, that no one read, was the stuff she wrote when her and Carter were still together.

On that day the next week, Bo pinned up her hair, put on jeggings, brown combat boots and a big green shirt with her grey beanie and hipster glasses. She looked beautiful. She finally thought that for once. And for once, Carter wasn't on her mind.

She got to the showcase and realized it was 4 minutes before she went on. She chose 3 poems she wrote when her and Carter were still dating.

She got up on stage in front of everyone.

She then realized Brantley was there. He flashed her a huge smile and a thumbs up.

"Great," thought Bo.

But she continued.

One.... Two.... and three....

By the time she was done reading, everyone was standing and clapping for her.

She got off stage and Brantley was in the back waiting. He kissed her and she smiled and gave him a hug. She left right after that.


Bo cried the whole way home.

This was the first time she cried in 3 months... but she couldn't hold it in any longer.

She got home, immediately went into the kitchen, grabbed 2 beers, and went in her room, trying to drink away her pain.

She realized... "I'm still in love with Carter. I don't know what to do."
