Sunday Writing Prompt – The End of the Road – March 28th

This week is Michael’s last time as host of the Sunday Writing Prompt, and as from next week Sara from ‘Relax it’s all write’ will be taking over.

Michael’s prompt this week is to write our response to the phrase,
“The End of the Road.”
Do you see what I see?
Stretched before you into the unknown,
We walk blindly on,
Looking neither left nor right.
Do you want what I want?
Shared dreams and ambitions,
A partnership and someone on whom to depend,
Not a fight to retain one’s identity.
Do you hear what I hear?
Excited chatter that becomes elusive,
Until we are left with silence
And solitude not of our own making.
Do you feel what I feel?
Lost, alone and afraid,
No comfort, warmth or companionship,
A dark void of deserted emptiness.
Did you see it coming?
Did it answer your needs?
Did you listen to your heart?
Did you feel a sense of loss?
You cannot turn back,
For the end of this road is nigh,
But there is always another
To travel and explore.
Dare you?

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 recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
