Friday Fictioneers prompt for 03 September 2014.
What is Friday Fictioneers? Rochelle presents a challenge to write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end, based upon a picture that she provides on her blog.
Here is today’s picture prompt (below).
Ashes of Love
Word Count: 100
Genre: Story in Rhyme
Shower of sparks, like a fountain of fireflies.
Flaring like a rocket and the stars in your eyes
Summer comes and it goes, more quickly each year
My heart so abused, grows colder. Forever I fear
The sparks dissipate into the velvet of night
The stars wink out in the black hole of a fight
I’m left chaffing my hands over coals to try and keep warm
Drawing the tatters of my heart close to keep it from harm
Love professed, once again is mocked and disgraced
“Just so you know, you’ve already been replaced”.
