Magpie Tales ~ Waiting!

artwork by Jack Vettriano


The above artwork is today's muse for our prose and short stories!  Beautiful and I just had to play with the image.



Waiting


He said he would be here at 6PM!
She waited
It's only 6:15
She waited
New dress...new shoes..
and a stylin' purse.
She waited!

Her life seemed out of focus!
She waited!
Edges fuzzy and melting into the past!
She waited
6:30
She waited!

He said he would be here at 6PM!
She waited!
It's only 6:45
She waited!
Door slamming...footsteps in hall!!!!
She waited!

Footsteps faded...7PM
She waited!
Day turned to night...
She waited
Darkness crept in
She waited!

Tasting salted tears
She waited
Seeing all the years!
She waited
10PM
She waited!

Shoes in the closet
Dress on a hanger
Laying in bed
Darkness embraces
She waited!!

    Nicely written.

  8. This conveys the emotions of expectation followed by disappointment so well.
