Week 14: Using yourself differently #2

Blurry eyes, and crusties are wiped away. The pain behind the eyes become more severe and the thought,
"you're never good enough" rolls across. Listlessly crossing and uncrossing of the legs are tell tale signs of nervousness. The restlessness stops momentarily as a pair of feet appear underneath the closed door. When the feet disappear the restlessness returns. Picking at the skin around the fingernails is a gross habit and the shaking leg returns. Suddenly, someone enters the rooms and extends their hand to be shook, "you're never good enough" again rolls across the unchecked thoughts.

  1. Nice kind of vignette--one of the best things about it is your confidence that it doesn't need explanation; it is what it is, and it's enough to be that and satisfying to a reader to just catch that quick sketch of a person and her thoughts.
