The only time I see you anymore is in firelight’s glow. This is when I can feel your warmth. Flickers of memory flow through me, a reminder of our love so like that flame– grown so quickly, extinguished too soon. It was only fitting that fire would be the mistress that stole you away.
Life is misery without you; each day a struggle to endure alone. Nothing can soothe this ache that echoes through my hollowed chest. Nothing but you.
So here I am, my finger blackened from the constant striking of the match that brings you back to me.
This week’s 100 Word Song challenge was See a Little Light by Bob Mould. (link takes you to lyrics and video).

This is also a response to the #BMWW challenge this week. We were challenged to write a love story based on the picture at the top of the page.
So how did I do? I love feedback, especially yours. Please feel free to add your thoughts on the story, where it could use improvement, and what you liked about it or didn’t like. Your feedback helps me grow as a writer.
Thank you for stopping in and reading.
