All good things come to an end eventually and so it is with the Friday Fictionners hitherto hosted by Madison Woods. Today’s prompt kindly provided by Ron Pruitt is the last one that Madison would host at her website. She is passing the torch on  to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who has been an avid fan of the Fictioneers, to enable her focus more on her own writing. In Madison’s words Rochelle will be a great new leader of the pack and I don’t doubt that. I can only wish Madison the best.

Through the FF, I have been able to hone my writing; I can also say that I have more than enough themes and plots for short stories and/or full novels. Madison, you are one great lady, and I’m happy that though you are going away, you will still participate in the FF. Thank you Madison, from the bottom of my heart. 🙂

My 100 words offering is a poem, more like my rumblings.

bus loadingSaying Goodbye

My wounded heart
Cries out to you
To stay
For the pain
Of your leaving
Is like a vice
Clamping the breath
Out of me.
My soul bleeds
As I release you
To fulfill your dream
I held you back
With myopic
My cloying love
An albatross
I refused to see
The yearning in you
To be unfettered
You were
A leashed creature
Always bucking
When the sun
Smiled through
Your tortured soul
You broke free
Your bus is revving
And I say
With a bleeding
For that which
Could have been
But never was
