Longing

She had always loved Nature far better than people.  In crowds she wore her mask with teeth fixed in a radiant smile never revealing the deep longing in her bones to follow the river track to the shallows and simply collapse. Nature always reeled her back .

This time, she had decided, she would stay, never to emerge again.

Well handled; beautifully written.

I think it is easy to love nature as nature offers us so much, it gives and gives and humans seems to just take and take..hopefully, we will not destroy what keeps us alive.

Nice take on the prompt.
I this chaotic world we often neglect the nature despite of knowing its importance in our life.
