realtoads Flash 55 PLUS! Imagined By Kerry O’Connor
For the OPTIONAL EXTRA part of this challenge, I invite you to choose a line or two of one of the saddest songs ever written as inspiration for your piece. The quotation itself will not fall within the parameters of the 55 words. Feel free to select words from a song featured in the clip, or from a personal favourite of your own which did not make the list.
Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves began to die?
That means he’s lost the will to live
I’m so lonesome I could cry
She stares out the window
he drinks a second cup of coffee
says, that was good, heads to the office.
She wonders that love can be so cozy
as she clears breakfast from the table
questions how she’ll be able to make
it through the day,
that empty place in her heart…
she’s coming apart.
