Forever Love

Forever Love
January 27, 2012 33 Comments Writing Stephanie Ayers

Bottles drained of poison were clasped in ancient hands. They’d promised “Til death” and now with their legacy complete,  it was death they greeted, hand in hand, their love shining from their souls.

      Perhaps. Maybe if they’d waited a full life before doing it. 😉

    Beautiful. I’m sure all true love wishes to greet death together rather than separate.

    I like the ancient hands — gives the story a sense of timelessness.

    Oh, why is it we love the tragedy of love sometimes more than the glory of it? At least in fiction. 🙂 Brilliant. X

    You know, there is a sweetness in the fact that some lifelong couples die within a year of each other … this way at least the one didn’t have to wait for the other. If I were old, this is exactly how I would want to slide in to home plate. Enveloped in the love of my beloved.

    Beautiful.

    I loved this. “Their love shining from their souls.” What a beautiful, haunting line. This is one that will stick with me for awhile.

      I am going to try to participate in the flicker of imagination prompts more often. I’m trying to balance writing to prompts and not writing to prompts, but perhaps what I need to do is write to both on a daily basis.

    Oh I really enjoyed your take on this prompt! I think that would be a beautiful way to leave this world beside the one you spent your life with! Awesome what you did with just 33 words. Came over from Trifecta!
