Writing Prompt #157 “Collage 22” – Wistful Girl


Wistful girl

Lies in her bed

Thoughts a million miles away.

She sees him standing there

Lingering in the distance.

She knows him so well

Welcomes him in her every day.

For a second she remembers his touch

Her impish love excites as never before.

The flowers he sent,

She pressed into the pages of a favourite text.

It’s well worn and rough around the edges,

Dog eared from affection and age.

She fingers the pressings

Remembering the moments when hands brushed

As shadows passing in the night.

She breaths him in

His scent lingers seductively:

She takes her thoughts of him

And her wistfulness plays a sought after tune.

    Lovely Michael. You’ve captured a lovely although perhaps sad aspect of love and longing, but as such, this is life sometimes. Well done 🙂
