FSF: Ache


               (Image taken from http://lilliemcferrin.com)

Somewhere in the deepest confines of his frosted heart something ripped. 
It was a strange sensation.
A cry built up inside him threatening to break his carefully stitched calm.
The onslaught of all these internal reactions confused him. 
It almost felt like being alive again.

FSF: Frozen

Her chubby fingers unclasp a silver box unleashing the calming notes of Fur Elise and a twirling ballerina. 
She wipes her tears with the back of her hand and falls asleep. 
                          ****
Her fingers are frail and they ever-so-slightly quiver when she unfastens the clasp. She closes her eyes as the melody plays out till the end. The notes trickle down to the last bar-much like her faltering breath-and the ballerina jerks to a stop, forever frozen in a pirouette.
