wish a word she held

stuck to lips like annoying bit

of damaged skin

those feelings,

bound her to the ground

leaden weights of perfect love,

we he would say

his way to think a solution

including her in all but answer,

a thread of words

a string of verbal saliva,

without meaning or power

it was always his way,

why does it turn out like this,

within four walls and shingle roof,

men again provocative and arrogant,

she had known another before

but could not stop herself

women are suckers for this

this routine of men needing as he did,

wish been granted she moved again,

located keys to the sedan he said she

could not drive,

and headed out,

a single emotion clutched her heart




thanks to the Sunday Whirl and words for the prompt http://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/2012/10/28/wordle-80/

    This reminds me of a movie… a gal, I think was dying, and told her paramours that she would only stay with them for one year. And while the last man begged and tried, she still left. Wanting her freedom.

    Especially strong beginning I thought – with the word stuck to lips. k.

    I like the conclusion at the end, Chris. I was hoping for her freedom.

    You evoke a strong emotional response in this one, clawfish. I felt like you were in her head.
