Saturday Centus - Your cheating heart?


This week Jenny, from "Off on my tangent" blog says don't exceed 109 words, and use the prompt of 
"It's only words.  And words are all I have." Any style writing and any photos.

Here is mine
I've been looking for you.  It's only words, and words are all I have, left to give you.

I searched every street band looking for you.

I even found your Aunt Emma to no avail.

I left this letter with her.

My dear Joe,
     I always wanted to go wherever your magic world
took me.  But I was fooled by that sweet illusion of love.
You have stripped away my last ounce of love for you. 
No longer can you hide your true feelings any longer.
    Go where your heart begs you to go.
         Honestly, Mary-Belle

I hope you both get lost in the desert tonight.

If you want to view more Saturday Centus, or try a bit of your flash fiction, Jenny and everyone else would love to see it.

it's a fun read, a good tell-off letter, great SC.

have a sweet day.

Rita said...

The "get lost" letter is always such sweet revenge. But, being able to deliver the message and end it with that solid slap on the cheek is so much better. Sorry your Mary-Belle had to resort to the former and was denied the latter.

O M G!!!When I saw that last line I almost wet myself laughing! You know how I loved taking rotten people out into the desert in the middle of the night and leaving them there, shoeless! Now, I only have the beach where people can just lie in the sand and look up at the stars until dawn. No fun!! Hahahahaha!!!!

Ha, that last line says it all. The horse somehow reminds me of Don QUixote!

This was fun, but I sure hope that it is fiction!
Best wishes,
