She whispered silkily in my ear, “Relax. You’re safe here.”

“Yes, I can be safe here. Relax,” my mind nodded agreement.

Yet my muscles tightened; my breath shortened.

My mind betrayed, I walked out, never to return.

    Wow, the poetry in you. Sometimes our minds lie to us, but our body rarely does.

    back away slowly. do not make eye contact. be gracious. do not engage the Tar Baby. once out of range, run, do not walk, to the nearest exit. do not look back. Trust, trust, trust your instincts….

    silverstar – it’s knowing which is lying and which is honest…as you said, trust the body (but can’t help listening to the mind

    daisyfae – good advice for any Tar Baby…just trying to figure out which are the Tar Babies is all. and who screams loudest…the instinct or the mind or other male body parts…

    dolce – unfortunately, i can’t just sit down and create stuff like this. it just sort of happens involuntarily (and always seems better when it does). alcohol may help

    leavingevangeline – thank you…and i’m still learning to trust it

    rob – yeah, turning down a woman? go figure! but the price was (is) too high
