NaPoWriMo #30: First things

Jane Dougherty Writes

For the last day of #NaPoWriMo.

Painting by Caravaggio detail


First things,

A baby hand clutching my finger,

A glass of wine on an evening terrace,

Your hand touching mine,

So long ago,

Making silent promises,

That only now I see you kept.

Slips Away



Days like today I feel her so much more. Like she is squeezing my hand a little tighter, like she needs me more than my heart aches for her already. As if her spirit somehow craves to touch me. The air smells of her and the sun is like a blanket she wraps around me holding us closer than ever before. It overwhelms me, the feeling of her.

The Discord

K Bain - Writer


Abusive words come easy
the hurt they cause it lasts
Wipes out all of yesterday
tears the world apart

Makes me feel as nothing; worthless
to the core
Retreating back in silence
unloved for ever more

‘I wish I’d never ever met you’ the
words of love I hear
spoken as you spit at me to
Wipe away my tears

I was never your enemy,
at times your only friend
I’m sorry I’ve ‘Never been there for You’
hurtful to the end..

But you once meant the world to me
today I’m sad that you still do
If you wanted so badly to leave me
I was not stopping you

You have no right, you never did
to scream at me your hate
I loved you for the soul you were
The soul your Hatred ate.
