Home » Friday Flash 55 » Remnants


new moon dark
pervades my soul,
no bounding hope of
joy waxing within
my aching breast

detritus in my mind
spills into the void
once filled by
your love for me;
obsession and
control overtook
carful tender feelings

more dangerous
than a poison arrow,
black-hearted words
that haunt my dreams,
the residue of
our relationship


You’d think I’d have lots of time to write now that I’m done kidding and calving, but things are still crazy busy.  I’ve sent the novel to the publisher, and I’m waiting to see the cover art.  The garden is growing and I’ve been making lots of soap. I had to find time to visit the greatest of hosts and participate in the fun this week.  Be sure to visit G-Man for more Flash 55 contributions.

  1. Teresa !!!!!
    Welcome back Wonder Woman
    We have all missed you very much.
    I hope this story was Fiction.
    Loved your morose 55
    Thanks for playing, thanks for thinking of me, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  2. Lovely and dark…just my cup of tea. The comparison to the moon is so apt. And congrats on the novel – that’s so exciting!

  3. Control is the nemesis of growth, and what isn’t growing is dying, I’ve heard–great 55 Teresa, and congrats on the novel, as well as all the new additions to the family.
