On the merry-go-round of the Friday Fictioneers, we spin our stories, tell our tales; climb to the heights or sink to the depths of the human condition. The photo to challenge us this week, comes courtesy of David Stewart, you can climb his Green Walled Tower to read more from him, and you can read more from Rochelle, who leads the Fictioneers up and down and round and round each week.

A Story of Love
I believed your promises of love and forever
I left my friends and family behind
They didn’t see what I saw
Couldn’t bask in the glow of the love you gave me.
I walked beside you
Your confidence soared
Saw a different world
A world of opportunity
For an unencumbered man.
Heartbroken desolate abandoned
Unable to dull the pain
I returned to my safe haven
Loving arms held me tight
Unquestioning support and solace
Nurtured the Me you had destroyed
Watched the smile I’d lost return
Saw me climb back to my place in the sun.
