100 Word Songs: Breaking the Girl

March 28, 2012

100 Word Song, Creative, Memes

Tears from him.

In that hotel room, in the dark.

Unmanning me.

“I can’t… just can’t!”

His voice pleaded, pulling the sheets up, aborting the moment.

Me, Munsch’s Scream, silent, gaping.  Not breathing. Pulse frenetic.

I couldn’t hear.  Something about another girl, no — a woman.

Another woman.  He loved us both.

She in Ohio, me in San Francisco.

But he was also in Ohio.  When he wasn’t there with me, in that hotel room, a rare occurrence.

Too expensive by far, when one’s money sources were scarce.

And so.  She was his every day.

And I his remember when.

    Seems as if “last lines” are what make a good 100 Word Song. Yours isn’t good though, it’s great!

    “And so. She was his every day.
