Friday, 5 lines or less…24th January

Patricia’s challenge this week is

Using the word cry
Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less

Tactless, cruel and thoughtless, it was a case of the pot calling the kettle black.
You were no better than I, but thought you were above everyone else.
Your hurtful words cut deep, but you did not defeat or better me.
I stood tall and would not give you the satisfaction of seeing me cry.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
