Prompt: …if she only knew…
Word count: 100 words
I am repeatedly drawn to this bleak monument that commemorates my deepest regret and replays a scene I can never fix.
They say no one is to blame, tell me to live and learn.
Yet, I can still touch the whimpering monster, taste his evil spark and the heartfelt rage that extinguished my future. Hatred lived in those eyes, fueled by an all-consuming love.
Painful words thrown like brutal punches left me with smoldering embers of bittersweet anguish.
Selfishly, I demolished every bridge with my clumsy attempt to declare my desire. A single wish remains.
If she only knew.
Keep on writing.
