read write prompt #113: the therapeutic cleanse

I am not a prolific enough writer to follow the rules and prompt well this week – BUT there has been one theme of  ‘sadness’ coming though a lot of my work of late …. so my ‘cleanse’ will be to make this a HAPPY piece … and I’ll even use punctuation and capital letters …. and god forbid … it might even rhyme !!!


She turned around and he was there,
It was unexpected, and she could feel the smile spread across her face,
It got harder for her to breathe as she got closer,
She hoped that he would reach for her, to enclose her in a warm embrace.

Just to be beside him was a joy to her,
They sat and talked and shared some laughter as they listened to the band,
But all the time inside her head,
She was imagining him leaning over closer and stroking  her hand.

Over lunch they talked more and more,
The words she wanted to say would not leave her lips or heart,
She kept them to herself and smiled
Because  she knew if she said the words out loud it would mean they’d have to part.

It was time to go, but she lingered on
Found excuses to keep on talking, to keep him with her a second longer,
It seemed hard to bear sometimes
But learning to live with unrequited love was sure to make her stronger.

She drove home with a smile
That was etched permantly on her face for the rest of the day,
As hard as it was for her to live like this
She knows she will get through it and it would be all be Okay.
