Slave to Love

Scrawls litter the paintwork of my dreams,
Small shoes run my corridors...
Drink. Snack. Drink. Snack. 
Lego bricks pebble dash my nerves,
Disregard frays my threads, 
“No” finishes me...
then finishes me again.

Next day I’m back. 

Slave to love. 



10 July 2019
This was inspired by John Hamilton’s “Slave to Love” prompt but was too short to enter the actual contest!

Oh - and I MISS all those signs of Lilliputions about ... "enjoy" while you can! ;o) (This will win SOME kind of contest - HAS to, the ordered universe and all).

Gorgeous and so honestly charming ... you have a grand talent for turning the mundane and trying into something beautiful and joyous, even when it's patently NOT! You find the bright in the darkness ... as my Great Uncle Lem would often say, "Sunlight can peep through a wee hole" ... he was a very similar personality, and I loved his presence. You are a gem, Nina ... I think we would "hang" together if you lived closer, like pixies on wave-tops, just for the fun of it! ;o) <3

Thanks so much Michelle! It was too short for the contest and then I tried to make it longer, it spoiled it, so I left it the way i liked it - and contest-less!
