Trifextra 102 – Unseen Advances

bluebells_1633226cHe only wanted to be her friend:
To touch her, to breathe her.
She now lies still in the wood –
Tender bird song framing the silence,
As bluebells sway in the summer breeze.


These 33 words form my entry into the Trifextra 102 challenge.

We were asked to write a story about ‘love gone wrong‘ which didn’t include any of the following words: Love, Heart, Sad, Tears, Pain, Wept. I hope you enjoy what I came up with.

      Cheers! Have to confess I haven’t actually read ‘Of Mice and Men’ – did start reading ‘The Grapes of Wrath’ but I gave up after a hundred or so pages 😦

    I have to admit that my mind went to Lenny from ‘Of Mice and Men’ as well, if you haven’t read it then read with caution, it is more than a little depressing even if it is a good book. A fantastic piece of writing, I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of darker themes against innocence of scene and speaker.
