A local writer and his prompts

The task was to write a poem, a segment or a paragraph that was about love.

This is it. This is what he is resigned to. He is left to live a life of pining for a woman that he is married to and has loved for twenty two years. All the time she wants nothing to do with him. He has not forgotten his promise to Him. He promised to “Love” her. This is all his God asked him to do. He has done it every day of those twenty two years without fail. This the first thing on his mind when he wakes and the last thing that crosses his mind before he closes his eyes.

  1. This was beautifully put together, I was so happy to see you say to Nora that this was indeed fiction and not based in real life! Entirely believable! Oh and perfection for song choice and Artist. Bonnie Raitt is a huge favourite of mine. Her vocals give me Goosebumps every time I hear her sing.

    1. Thank you my friend. It’s a writing prompt. That’s all. I am flattered you thought this to be non fiction. “Heartbreakingly beautiful”.. what a great thing to say to a fellow writer. You are by far my greatest fan. ❤️
