One Word

One word
Spoken in the hush
As evening falls

One kiss
Light on a cheek
In shadows

One promise
Broken before
It is made

One heart
Split at the core

One word
Too quiet to hear
All is lost

    And that word is ‘Bugger’. (Well, actually it’s probably not, but the alternative wouldn’t have been suitable for publication.)

  2. That is just perfect: poignant , to the point, and breathless!

  3. Another musing to ponder Sis… very nice indeed xxxx

  4. Sigh, a lost love. Expressed tenderly.

    I really didn’t want to read this tonight, but I think I was meant to read it! I just wrote one about how his one word makes me ponder going back. Yours reminds me that I shouldn’t. Thank you for writing this…even though I didn’t want to read it! lol

  6. **sigh & ouch** I need a Helen hug…..and chocolate. Beautifully sad, Sis.

    This lyrical parquet of well-chosen, economical words forms an image that outshines the gravity of heartbreak. So good.
