I have been unable to post anything as my account was suspended by WordPress. I don’t know why this was and they haven’t told me why they did it. There was just a message saying my account was suspended when I tried to log on. I sent an email complaining and have not had a reply, but magically the account seems to be working now. Thank you WordPress!
So, with haste in case they change their minds and banish me again, here is the story you should have seen last week.
Word Count: 100
Into The Blue
“It’s deep blue, just like your eyes”, I say,
He continues to read the paper barrier between us.
“My outfit looks good, what will you wear?”
There is no answer.
He turns a page.
Seemingly all communication has ceased,
His silence is slowly suffocating me.
I walk onto the terrace.
I forgave his betrayal,
I should have let him go
Not clung to him in desperation,
Fearful of a life without him.
I watch the flotsam in the bay, subject to demands of an indifferent tide,
I dress for the party and leave,
Travelling hopefully, towards new horizons.
Thanks as always to Rochelle and to B.W. Beacham for the photo last week.
I have not been able to comment on any stories, I promise to make amends this week – WP permitting of course!
