A smattering of a truncated thought. A portion of a one-way conversation, held in 100 words or less. The last remnant of a topic that no longer needs be discussed, here or elsewhere. Inspired by a reality more surreal than fiction, my latest prompt mash-up – this one being between 100 Word Song and Light and Shade Challenge.
As always, I hope you enjoy…
“I’ll always love you.”
A white lie, one eventually bloomed to black.
“Whatever. You never listened to me.”
Listened? My very life was a response to your words.
“I wanted you to be free.”
Than why’d you cage me?
“Shut. Your. Mouth! Without me, you’d have crashed.”
With you, I did.
“I’m doing this for you.”
More white lies, a wedding cake’s full.
“I know you’re ‘unhappy…’”
This isn’t going to make me so.
“I know you’re gay!”
It wasn’t me who left our marriage-bed for another man.
“Whatever. I’ll always love you.”
A white lie. One no longer worth holding true.
Light And Shade Prompt:
