Put you center stage.

For it wasn’t a ring I was chasing…

Having you was enough.

      HI :)
      first thank you and I weighed the “carry water” line in my mind, but then when I named it “Concession” I figured that the readers would see the one sided nature of her vs him.

      I am loving my new blog…it feels like “me” . :)

  3. Awwwww! Always the sweetest place to visit!! Missed you!!!

  4. It’s really hurtful to be in such a one-sided romance and you have captured it very well!

  5. beautifully written……..


  6. “Carry your water” intimate and tender. Not sure the title is the best option. I do like your take on the prompt.

  7. Oh the heartache in the last line! This is beautiful Kir! Happy weekend, my friend!!

    Sweet and somber, Kir. It’s lovely.

  9. This is so sad. It seems he was her everything, and now she’s left with nothing. Beautifully poignant piece.

  10. I enjoyed this. Funny how men think women are always chasing that commitment and diamond. lol

  11. Sweet but heart-breaking, that he couldn’t see that.

  12. Lovely.. beautiful feeling of love.. :-)

  13. You moved to WordPress!

  14. Sad and tender. The longing and regret left me hoping for a happy ending.

  15. A very pretty poem. You made it look easy.

  16. Who would squander that kind of love? Beautiful writing!

  17. i like this

  18. Wistful and poignant–what an original use of the prompt. The “carry your water” line did exactly what you intended it to for me, and that was before I even noticed the title. Ah, those imbalanced relationships, a special kind of pain.

  19. love the sound of “linger a bit longer” :)
    also love the new look of your blog . . . pretty

  20. Lovely sentiment and poignant. If only people didn’t assume another ‘s motives. Well done.

  21. Oh, ouch, ouch, ouch… how sad, how poignant.

    First, I LOVE the new layout! So pretty <3. On to the prompt. Yes. Beautiful, touching, sad perfectly written.

  23. I think the very thought of a ring scares many guys away, unless he’s like 80 and his proposed bride, around 23 !!!! Sad romance of unrequited love….

  24. This is really pretty Kir. Thank you for linking up! ~Mary Beth
