"Walk By Faith, Not By Sight" 2 Corinthians 5:7

Triefextra: Week 102


Flashbacks in Time

Haunting loneliness
Wedding dress hanging
Yellowing in the closet
Admittance of only lust
Distance in reality and in the soul
Golden Ring
Dress Blues proposal
Childish Romance
Big, goofy, charming smile


Prompt: 33 Words about love gone wrong

      Yes, unfortunately. But, that is life.

    Young love is frightening in its intensity (and the burn-out if things don’t work out.)

      Oh goodness, trust me, I know. This was inspired from my own experience. Though it was frightening, and still is at times, I see now that it wasn’t meant to be, and I am happy with that.

    I like the way this reads….the flashbacks going farther and farther into the past until one comes to the end, which is really the beginning! Brilliant. Reading it backwards also adds to the effect of what has gone wrong/been lost. Great job :-)

      Sadly enough, I have never read Great Expectations. :$

    This is haunting and heartbreaking. I love the way you told it from end to start. I especially liked “distance in reality and in the soul.” Great piece!
