Magpie Tales #55

Killing Words are Death to Love

Sour to the core
Mean flavored
Acerbic and without love
You sucked the sweetness
From my soul
Leaving me
Tart and biting
….Too much like you.





I recently realized that it's been too long since I tried my hand at one of Willow's writing prompts. Why don't you give it a try as well?

  1. This was really good.;) I can feel the pain.
    I can not do this - poetry writing is simply not my thing.;)

    I was just thinking about you this afternoon. Came home from the pottery studio and pulled some things from the kiln. I'll be posting them later this week. Glad to see the creative juices flowing - beautiful writing.
