    Fall from grace indeed. Childhood dream versus reality. Thanks Dafy for your comment!!

    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
    "That sort of hell wouldn't worry me," Fellowes said.
    "Perhaps you've never lost anything of importance," Scobie said.

    I wonder, is that last line meant to be a double entendre? Nicely done, I appreciate the transition from her innocent play-acting as a child to the somewhat less innocent play-acting expected of her as an adult woman.

    You certainly can say that Prince, I opened it to interpretation. I really appreciate your feedback!

    A clever piece, Haunted. And who knows what ambitions children have - as you say, dreams v reality? - great musical accompaniment as well

    thanks Hill, glad you enjoyed the music
    I was reflecting how simplistic the world is to a child, and how things really are when one grows up

    From angelic girl to pole dancer. I guess every pole dancer was an angelic girl but not all angelic girls become pole dancers. I would dance for a handful of twenties and I was an angelic boy once
    Soundtrack wise, Massive Attack are Bristol's finest, so appreciated that too
    Another very enjoyable trash day, lady haunted.

    Probably highlighting one great nightmare for Dads with daughters! It's a horrifying thought, I promise you.

    hey Dafy, I thought you weren't going to judge her

    Jerry the angelic boy? ROFL. I definitely would give a 20 to see you dance.
    Massive Attack is from Bristol?! What a small world!

    thanks Daf and Jer for stopping in on trash day

    oooo...here's a 20 for the dance, another 20 for you to go get some clothes afterwards...

    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."

    now that's going to make me want to write more, mwah for the encouragement, my darling girl.
