Raping Spring #poetry

The loss of the Idyllic and ideal in a moment … such is Rape

http://cherishwords.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/tulip.jpg

another flower was trampled just the other day

beautiful, young, bright like spring

a temptation to the taker

taunting her

brushing aginst her bloom

smelling her

but not too close

until the right time

when she would …

open her beauty for him

desire his praise

a draught so sweet

he sipped deeply

then tore the petals

threw them away

walking down the pathway

toward the next fresh tulip

A Look at the Past #flashfiction

When you look back at memories let the fragrance live on though the past may be only memories.

…A moment

A memory…

That was all there was.

“Look back it’s our fragrant past but sadly not our promising future.”

A tear streamed down her face

knowing she had misplaced an old friend’s plans.

He had waited all these years to hear

“you broke my heart once there is nothing left to hold dear.”

Each Thursday night 8pm EST there is an opportunity to share with others your work of flash fiction. It’s short, it’s only 55 words, it’s a challenge. So instead of your Sudoku for Friday try a flash fiction hosted by G-Man aka Mr. Know it All.

The Last of the Hearts (One Stop Poetry)

The game of life was on

players easing into another hand

spades, diamonds and clubs  flying

one man controlled the game

with high trump

***

masterfully skilled

keeping his eye on the others

the cavalier swept more into his cache

waiting to take it

all

***

… and there they were

the helpless hearts

could no one protect them

from his grasp?

**

Alas

none could stand

against this man

the skillful manipulator

***

one lone heart beat

quivering

against his dark gleam

hoping for

reprieve

***

holding herself back

lest she too

be swept into the pile

of broken hearts

This poem is just one amoungst the myriad of finely written work. Please check out the poets at One Stop Poetry.
