Swan River

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

is it frigid cold, for the poor coal-black swan
as he plunges the milky surface?
is it today that mother dolphin
will swivel for the girl who will forever remember?
is it a week for plundering rain
to fill and spill this river?
is it the only river to find
the only stream of coal-black swans?

You Used Me Like a Happy Pill

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2020

Swallowed me whole and made me yours. When you were inevitably low again, you pushed me away. Selfish.
When we met I knew. You were a child in need of nurturing. You needed to be chosen. I chose you, very consciously, knowing someday you would let me down. 
I thought we had more time
But time stole away. It does that to the best of us. 
It seems time is more cruel than yourself.

Love is not earned, it's given....
