Forest for the Trees

She only saw the Trees

He saw a labyrinth of confusion and missteps which had dictated his current perspective of the Trees

She only saw the Trees

He tried to get her to understand that beyond the Trees there was a life for which he could not protect her

She did not need protection, she only knew the Trees

In frustration, he threw her into the forest. Covered her with the decay of nature. Forced her to taste beyond the Trees

She brushed away his anger and looked up at the Trees.
