NaPoWriMo Day 27/ Three Line Tales: Lune – “Stalled” #amwritingpoetry

She’s stalled, shapely yellow dress;

Lips scarlet, cheeks —

White heels; dazed diamond eyes.


Hands clenched, lashes flicker midnight;

He’s there again,

Lies snicker, smoke daylight — fake.


As if his fist slipped,

Bruised purple without —

Admitting truth; he maimed her.

      1. I’m okay Sascha. I lost my grandma today. She was nearly 90, but it’s sad just the same. Maybe worse than being a kid, b/c I had a relationship with her as an adult. But I’m happy she’s gone and no longer suffering. Otherwise, I’m doing okay 🙂

      2. I’m so sorry to hear about your grandma. But I’m glad to hear that you had a good relationship with her as an adult. I was the child of older parents so I never knew most of my grandparents and my beloved granny died when I was in my early 20s and I didn’t get to know her as well as I would have liked. It’s good that you had that. I’ve seen that your writing has matured a lot in the three years I’ve known you. And, your perseverance (I gave up on napowrimo when I started flailing with the a to z challenge) is wonderful. Hugs to you. I know you grandmother must be in your thoughts.

      3. Thanks Sascha. I’m glad my writing has matured even though it’s been done less. I appreciate that. 2 day’s of Nano left lol. I’m sorry you didn’t know all your grandparents, but happy you knew your grandma. It’s hard in your 20’s, not quite an adult, but not a kid. Transitioning to the kid you to the adult you with older relatives can be hard. I wish I’d seen her one last time before she died, more recently than I had . My health has been stressed, but I should’ve seen her. And yes, I think of her, but also how happy she is to be young again and see my grandpa (died 20 years ago) and her parents, a couple of her siblings, and her many friends. She was a pastors wife so very outgoing & loved to be the centre of attention. She would always talk over everyone it was so funny at times. My grandpa was a quiet pastor. But, when Grandma was older and me too, we began to talk and she listened a lot more. Me too. She told me about her family, growing up, and even though she loved to talk, she learned to listen too. Will miss her and I know you’ll see your granny again, just like I’ll
        See mine.
        Take care lady. Keep writing your wonderful stories.
