Wretched Roses

https://thehauntedwordsmith.wordpress.com/2019/03/12/genre-challenge-9/

Today’s genre: Romance; Today’s photo:

You used to bring me roses from your garden.

You were 40, I was 17…a virgin…and

Imagined this was true love…

You were married…but maybe someday.

We sneaked around, mere kisses, holding hands.

You asked if I knew what a “concubine” was…

I lied, “yes”…embarrassed to admit ignorance…

I lived for each time we met.

Your little daughter was precocious…

Told her mother you brought roses to me.

You lost respect of your peers who

Observed lecherous looks and

Had my well-being in mind.

Goodbyes…then we ran into each other

Years later, after both our divorces.

I was prize you no longer coveted…

Not fresh rosebud anymore.

I tossed the pressed rose petals saved…

The ones from your garden.

Today’s sentence prompt: “Haven’t you done that enough?”

Walk back into

Friendship

Of chronic crazy-making dysfunction…

Bang

Head on wall yet again

Which activates Wisdom’s voice:  “Haven’t you done that enough?”

Heart Stones

https://thehauntedwordsmith.wordpress.com/2019/03/07/story-starter-challenge-5/

Today’s prompt: “I never thought that was possible.”

Heart made of

Stones

Stepping stones: respect, trust

Affection

Time…exchanging ideas, feelings, laughter

Love turning tide—I never thought that was possible.
