Smother

She was afraid.
To stay.
To leave.
To move away from comfort.
Safety.
Familiarity.
Warmth.
So fear
kept her restrained
held
immovable
frozen.

And this could be a
short story
if she compromised
with fear and decided
to not "cause a stir"
to "play her role"
and "not cause problems."
But the fire in her soul
could not be smothered
could not be silenced.

And so
with trembling legs
and a trembling heart
she moved.

Forward.

Anyway.
