Lover’s Quarrel

DayDreamer
Desire lit the fuse
but, anger hewn from his jealousy
spawned the final clash which
placed a fork in their roads
and she watched him drive away.

Now she sits frozen there
like wax
…forlorn
and, she will find
even time’s sand stands still
until the wounds have healed
from this manic affair.

  1. This is what can happen when people love each other without liking each other. They hearts – and other body parts might meet for a while, but not the minds, and certainly not the souls.

    You incorporated all the whirl words in a seemless way. Very nice.

    Cheers!

  2. I pictured a giant fork stabbing down to split a road.

    I liked the sound of “hewn” following “fuse”.

  3. Sometimes the wounds never fully heal and yet the scars can be a bittersweet reminder of that which was; and of that which is yet to be. I love the imagery you have woven into a patchwork of raw emotion.

  4. even time’s sand stands still
    until the wounds have healed

    Lover’s quarrels ought to be forgotten before the dawn of the next morning. Otherwise the wound would fester for a lifetime! Nicely Bren!

  5. I’ve read a few prompted with these words. Yours is by far my favorite (shhh… don’t tell the others). If I had not recognized the words I would never have known this was a prompt response. You created a piece that feels organic, sprung from experience. It’s brevity adds clout. Really nice write.

    I loved this image. This feels like a bit of a different write for you. I really loved the feel of this and the pairing with the picture. Beautifully done.

  7. truth through well written words. Hello, there I’am back and your still writing beautifully 🙂

  8. What a cool take on this painting, fits it quite perfectly. “even time’s sand stands still until the wounds have healed”…oh so true…

  9. heartbreaks are always tough.but there are no lovers without quarrels.good things in life dont come easy.one has to fight for them.

  10. Nice use of the words. I particularly enjoyed your language here: spawned the final clash which / placed a fork in their roads.

  11. Like the time’s sand standing still, surely from that she will get her fill, maybe not a thrill but have to get up over the hill.

  12. oh, sad….the things that drive lovers apart…and they hold on so long keeping their wounds fresh and open well after they should have healed….
