365 Days of Writing | #14 Something Evil

WordPress Writing Prompt: Wicked Witch
Write about evil: how you understand it (or don’t), what you think it means, or a way it’s manifested, either in the world at large or in your life.

It happens to her once in while. The wicked witch comes for a visit. The dark cloud looms. A dark force takes hold making her do things she doesn’t want to do like consuming large amounts of icing and dough with a wave of caffeine. It doesn’t help. It only perpetuates the mess. She lacks a compass, a true North. It leaves her to the whim of the winds to carry her like the feather in Forrest Gump. She misses things. Like the leaves changing up north. Her feet were stuck in the swirling muck for too long. She isolates, although recently she reached out then rejected the help. A change in venue sometimes makes a difference. But it doesn’t last. This something evil takes hold of her threatening to not let go. It sabotages her confidence keeping her from doing things she wants to do.

But there is a tiny window through which she’s sees possibilities. An opening into the forgotten world. And if she keeps her sights on that it gets bigger. And bigger. Then she finds her way again.
