Choice - inspired by Three Word Wednesday

Inspired by Three Word Wednesday this week's prompt words are dabble, lean, utter.


She could no longer bring herself
to utter his name
or let the galloping wild horses
of her impatience
continue to assign the blame
for it was she
who chose
to dabble
with glass
and with darkness
and the cracks in the curtains
just made her lean further
away from
the light

Yes so true!! It is the choices that we make which ultimately makes us or breaks us.

Nice poem!!

rather intriguing backdrop here for a deeper story...

Hmm..'dabbling with glass' that makes me wonder what she is up to and why the outside world is retreating..a fine brew of darkness..Jae ;)

Great character description. I know her!

Beautiful, Susannah! This one inspired me to read it aloud. It also begs the question of what has happened, exactly. Nicely done, intriguing read, and I'm getting a "pissed off" vibe from your narrator, which I like.
