Goodbye

This is written for Denise’s Six Sentence Story word prompt – Confetti

We were so young.

It’s not our fault that
we didn’t have time
to rehearse life.

We didn’t understand that
stubborn promises were just a preface.

We loved so hard.

We were so inexplicable,
so endearing,
so annoying,
consumed by seven emotions
and six desires.


It was cold that day,
tears turned into ice,
snowflakes falling down
like confetti,
red-eyed, red-faced.

  1. Very moving poem of two people possibly breaking up, but maybe it will not be so final, especially with “red-eyed, red-faced” at the end. I like how you used confetti to refer to snow.

  2. Wow! What a great post, My Dear! Very moving! Now you have me wondering about the 7 emotions and 6 desires and thinking perhaps you might share these with us in a poem/post??? Please? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒน
