AND SO I DROWN

The prompt for today is Writing in One Sentence, challenge created by RXC:PROMPT #247, hosted by Reena

Just when I think there are no more tears left in me,
a thousand more worm their way out of the corners of my eyes
and trickle down my cheeks, falling on my breasts
as my fingers quiver over the keyboard,
its magnetic pull as strong as the waves of a tsunami
dragging me to you,
to reach out to you and lose myself in your eyes,
to dream of your hands on the small of my back
drawing me to you,
bringing out every passion every woman
throughout all of time has ever known
yet realizing if I do so I will lose myself forever
and so I drown in tears of sorrow and love and painful resolution;
O God, I despise my anguished body
which has turned against me so cruelly,
I hate these feelings I have for you,
and yet I delight in them
as I am devoured by the passion you have for me
and I die a million times over for I know the pain I suffer
will never allow me to be with you again,
the only one I truly long for.

  1. So, at your site settings there is a Discussion tab. In there , you will find an option where it says Require permission if a comment contains x number of links.
    I have it set to 2.
    If yours is at 1, that means any comment with a link ( like the ones I tried with the YT video) will be held for moderation.

    1. Hmm, the only Discussion tab that even remotely looks like that is this one:
      Hold a comment in the queue if it contains X or more links. (A common characteristic of comment spam is a large number of hyperlinks.) I have mine set for 2. There is no other tab that discussed number of links.

    1. Thanks so much, Sadje. I am so glad you liked my story; all we can do is try to reach even one person when we write. ๐Ÿ’•

      I’m still terribly confused about the ping backs and I don’t know if I’m doing them right. I posted my story on your page as well as Reena’s. I referenced Reena’s page, as you saw on my post, but I’m still not sure I’m doing it right. I need someone to explain it to me simply. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
