It’s the question I’ve been asking since we met. I can’t tell if you care or if you tease. With you the day is light or else it’s black. Your words can bring me to my knees. Give me a sign to let me know.

My friends say I should live my life, stop this endless strife, and find myself another wife. I want a single word from you, the reason to endure to the end of time. Please give me a sign and let me know.

Tonight, I found you gone, and at last, I read your sign.


Keep on writing.

  1. very large sign – unable to miss, but can it be trusted? nice one Jo, you used the prompt, well, i could also be led to think about horoscopes and if their signs were compatible
