Third Place Breath and Bone Writing Prompt Challenge: My Breath & My Bones/Tremaine L. Loadholt

My apologies for the delay in posting the results of the Breath and Bone Writing Prompt Challenge.  The submissions were excellent and you made the judges work hard.


He does not look

At me anymore

I am damaged, ruined…

A shell with no stuffing–

I knew it would end, just

Not this way.

 

He came, thunder at night

Heavy with pauses

On unsure footing

I aimed for his heart

And missed.

 

Now I see him in

Pieces,

Hiding in shadows

That whisper in the night.

Miraculously, I find a pulse

In my feeble body,

Breaths steady

Bones cracking

I gave him

The biggest part

Of me

 

Yet, he shuffled

Away from the scene,

Crisp as new bills.

Love watched him

Disappear into thin air–

A modern day Houdini

 

Using every part of

Me as his magic

Trick.
