“But how can one regret what, to the mind, has never existed? Even loss is an inaccurate description, for what loss is without the awareness of losing?” – Nicole Krauss 

——

Reflections or shadows briefly stand,

Together as soulmates, us two

Lovers.

——

Your illusion captivates,

Your splendour resilient,

Eyes bright.

——

Even mirror images,

Destain to show your glory told, 

Goddess.

——

Knew you once as a child laughing bold,

Called you names and pulled your hair,

Cute girl.

——-

You’ve grown and you’ve changed,

Hair black and sweeping, shoulder length,

Glossy.

—–

Green eyes telling a story of —

Smiling lips, straightened teeth gleaming

Perfect.

—–

Stubborn chin, lovely breasts rising,

Fluted waist, lush body, legs —

Stellar.

—-

Curves run imagination wild and I, 

Stare, hopeful to hear your lilting voice —

Whisper. 

*****

I examine our reflections,

How strange you hate your beloved —

Husband.

—–

Caring for you as Alzheimers, 

Steals your lifememories; you’re —

Forty-nine.

Flash Fiction For Aspiring Writers – The Kiss


Pearl swam up to the boat with a flick of her tail. She leaned over the side of the boat and stared deeply into the eyes of a bewildered young man.

Pearl was gorgeous and she knew the effect she had on the lovely young man with deep brown eyes. She began to sing him a tune in the human tongue. ” I love to swim in the ocean, I love to swim in the sea. Don’t be afraid now. I am here to see only you …” Pearl flung her luxurious dark brown hair back and fluttered the long lashes of her purple eyes. Her ruby red lips opened in a smile as she rose out of the water more, her naked breasts bounced enticingly.

Pearl set her sights on the handsome young man again and his deep set brown eyes, she brought herself to kiss him and he trembled in her arms. Then she pulled him hard and fast underneath the water breathing into his mouth. And she carried him away to the land of the merpeople never to be seen again.
